Almost embarrassed to ask. Anyone read Ready Player One?
Loved it. Can’t wait to see the movie.
I guess you’ve missed the previous posts. ? People love it. I certainly did. I listened to it. Wil Wheaton does a great job.
Yes, just joined this page.
Welcome! Ask anything. Doesn’t matter if it’s been asked before. I was teasing because a week or so ago someone asked this, and the comments went on and on. Being a gamer doesn’t matter. It’s all the 80s pop references that are so fun – movies, songs, tv, games, etc.
Listened to it. It was good. Not as fantastic for me as some gamers but it kept me interested.
I’m not a gamer so when I heard one of the podcasts I listen to recommend it I was skeptical
Loved it, the movie is only 2 hours I can’t see how they can pare it down enough. Read the book.
Uh, yes. Very good, fun read.
I just got it from my library Tuesday and an loving it. I had no idea it was going to be a movie, let alone that the movie comes out at the end of this month. It was highly recommended to me by more than one person.
I’m waiting, not so patiently, for my library audio version…hurry up, already!!!
Loved it. Was hooked at a footnote mentioning Depeche Mode and Heathers.
My 13 year old son and I both read it and loved it! We can’t wait to go see the movie.
My husband read it (and he’s not even a reader) and he loooooooved it. So I told him I’d read it next. I hear great things about it but my TBR list is so massive it takes me ages to get to my books at times without a push 😛
Flew through it. Fantastic
Yes! Loved it.
I liked it. A lot of 80’s trivia. Fun to read!
I have it but I haven’t read it yet.
Loved it. Not my normal genre, and so I was surprised at how much enjoyed it.
Yes, great book!
I loved it! It was a good read and had great 80’s references! I can’t wait for the movie to compare.
Yes! A fun read!!
Yes read it immediately.
Yes and I loved it. Very nervous about the movie. I haven’t even watched the trailer.
It’s getting pretty rave reviews from early viewers, so my hopes are high.
I listened to the audio book. The choice of Wil Wheaton as narrator was brilliant. I didn’t love it but it was enjoyable, and more so because of his narration. Not sure if I want to see the movie.
I want to watch the movie first then read the book. Less high expectations that way..
it’s on my list, I heard it’s awesome but I haven’t started it yet.
I really enjoyed it. Yes, the writing isn’t that great, but it’s still fun if you are into 80s geek culture at all. 😉
Best book ever bro. Loved every bit of the book.
Funny you ask. I did read it last year. I remember enjoying it tremendously as I read it. I liked it a lot. And then promptly forgot about it. Completely forgot what it was about until the movie trailer came out,
Not yet. I have it on hold at the library… my digital version came in yesterday, or so I thought… turns out i accidentally put a hold on the Catalan version of it!! Lol. I think this is another one I’ll just have to buy once I get through all my other TBR books!
Yes! Awesome read!
Just got it from the library today. Gonna dig in this weekend.
Yup! very fun read! Enjoyed it!
Before reading it i thougjt it was a ya novel about gamers and would not be something i wanted to read. I really liked it and was pleasantly surprised.
One of my all time favorites
Yes, I’m a big fan! (Senior non-gamer, but loved it!)
Yes soooo good! Just a fun quick read. Sometimes you need a book like that in your lofe
Wasn’t the best book I’ve read but I enjoyed the 80s references! Sometimes it was too much maybe…. You could just tell this book was meant to be a movie. Good book! Made me jam to my 80s tunes.
So good. Do it.
Its on my list. I am always tempted to start it but get distracted by another book. Lol
Yes. Just got movie tix for the fam today.
Yes. I’m an 80′ s kid but it was so so.
I did when I was still in high school.
not yet but is on the ever growing tbr list ( not really into sci fi but it sound interesting and the film looks good)
Just as an fyi, the bookstore I worked at classified it as fiction, not Sci fi. And it’s really good!
Someone told me it was the best book the ever read. I’m piqued.
Yes, it is fantastic!
Just picked it up on the half price table at my local indie.
I loved all the pop culture references. Really fun read.
Yes. Found it okay. IT was a fun read since I was an 80s kid, but the main character had things a bit too easy to get what he needed, honestly.
He’s a Mary Sue 😉
I read it twice 🙂 great fun!
Why embarrassed? It’s great fun, just don’t read his second book!!!!
His second book was great fun too 😀 😀
Super cheesy haha!!
there’s a second book?
Not a sequel though, it’s called Armada
It was a fun read and I’m not an 80’s kid. More like a 60’s kid.
I’ve read it! it’s cool, and enjoyable even though I’m not 80’s-ish
Yes. Good read. Gave it 4 stars.
I am loving it
I really enjoyed it. Think I’ll read it again before seeing the movie.
I couldn’t finish the book. Wasn’t into it at all.
Really? It was like Stephen S in a book with popcorn, a choc top and your first boyfriend to reminisce with….
I have. I enjoyed it.
The audio version was great.
Listened to audiobk yrs ago.
Yes. It read like a YA book, but pretty fun.
I read it a few years ago – it was OK
IT’S THE BEST!
I read the book and the audio book (Narrated by Wil Wheaton) both are excellent.
I really enjoyed it, I’m a child of the 60’s and loved all the 80’s references.
My 13-year-old son read and loved it… he did not care for the sequel.
Oh yeah. I can’t express how much I loved it. Great for people who grew up in the 80s. Can’t wait to see the movie.
I just finished it for an irl book club, and I enjoyed it. In my opinion, it’s definitely YA, but great.
I don’t know if it’s YA, you’d have to explain too many references!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed it! 🙂
One of my favorites. Its mu go to book. Love it.
No ? I made it about halfway through and DNF’d. I wasn’t enjoying it – just not for me.
yes and I really liked it.
Yes, loved it
It’s on my to read list!
yes! Listened to it. Amazing!
Why embarrassed? I liked it a lot ??
Yes! Such an incredible book
Loved it!! ??
I did! Not ashamed! Enjoyed it! ❤️
Next up !
Yes…I had to return the audio to the library before I finished it…so I bought the print book to finish it. I rarely buy books except as gifts to others.
I’m in an unbelievably long Hold queue for the audiobook at the library!
I reserved it in the middle of January and it’s finally being “shipped!” ???
Listening to the audiobook now.
Reading it right now
