Ready Player One

Recommended Posts

Ready Player One is a (sorta) dystopian novel published in 2011 and is currently being made into a movie to be released this year.  Mostly because Stephen Spielberg and Warner Brothers want to capitalize on the surging popularity of 80s nostalgia that is sorta trendy due to IT, Guardians of the Galaxy, and especially Stranger Things.

Spoiler alert:  Ready Player One is nowhere near as good.  

When I was in 5th grade, one of my teachers told me that if nothing had happened by the time you hit page fifty in your book, just throw it in the trash and move on.  All my friends told me that this book was shit.

I should have listened. 

Brace yourselves to see a book that, as of page 50, has consisted of nothing more than a stereotypical Reddit bro ranting about fake geeks, scary women, bullies, organized religion, and being smarter than everyone else while still being unable to think up any kind of actual worldbuilding.
