Ready, Player One
I just finished this book, and I can say it's tons of fun. It's an easy read, and the reviews do tell you everything you need to know to get into it. I like the sense of adventure and virtual reality, and all the pop culture references, especially given that we're seeing more and more VR/AR nowadays. It has some interesting commentary about the way things are in this world, and even offers a believable, if a little scary, future.
Some of the references to pop culture in the 80s were lost on me, but that doesn't really take away from the sense of fun in the book. Many of the games are also too old for me to have any real experience playing them, whatever, this is fun.
Definitely worth reading. 5 out of 5.
