I’ve read Ready Player One* by Ernest Cline twice and it was just as enjoyable each time. It is packed with an interesting story (I LOVE tournament type stories), hilarious, and chocked full of 80’s references. Bret and I both read a lot but we don’t typically read the same books either at the same time or at all. After I read this book though, I essentially shoved the book into his hands and forced him to read it. The only other time I’ve done that was with You Are A Badass At Making Money. Thankfully, I was not wrong in my suggestion as he loved it too.
If you’ve seen the movie or have read the book and not seen the movie, well, to be honest, they’re two different things. I understand the changes they made for the screen but there was so much they left out. What helped me not hate the movie because of so many differences was to think of them as two different animals. The movie was still a fun ride, I will give it that.
If you’re looking for a fun fiction book that gives you lots of great brain pictures, this is the book you’re looking for (said in my best Obi-Wan voice).

I absolutely devoured this book. I read it just before the movie came out. I liked the movie, too, but you’re right–they are different beasts.
Right??? I read it SO fast! Glad you agree with the “different beasts” observation. Haha, it really does help me not get mad about it. 😀
