Ready Player One: A Novel

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline I liked but didn't love this straight-ahead adventure story clothed in an unreasoning, nostalgic love for 80s geek culture. I am just a little too old to remember the 80s so fondly. I did laugh aloud numerous times, and the story was involving and plotted well. It's pure summer/escapist/goofy fiction, and it's a lot of fun if you have even a passing familiarity with the 80s. I suspect there's a generation for whom this one is as evocative as Among Others was for me.
