Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (2011-08-16) Audio CD – 1773
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Cline didn't disappoint in his book Ready Player One. Get ready for a ride you won't soon forget in this futuristic world that will take you back to the 80's to enjoy all of the 80's pop culture we had as kids. The book is more than simple entertainment as it touches on many societal themes such as the impact and role of technology, friendship, opportunity, and more. You're going to love reading about this future world and the challenges that they face which are eerily paralleled with challenges we currently face or soon could. What a well written book and a quick and engaging read. I loved his other novel Armada as well. I'm very happy with Cline as an author and very much enjoy his books.

Diamond's Star Rating System:
1 STAR - Completely unusable, would request a refund
2 STAR - Meets minimum viable product requirements, wouldn't purchase it again
3 STAR - It does what it should, but in a non-spectacular way, I may recommend it, but definitely with reservations
4 STAR - I like it. It is solid quality and delivers as advertised, I would purchase it again and recommend it to a friend
5 STAR - I love it. It meets or exceeds all of my expectations and is high quality, I would purchase it again and would openly promote it to friends
That disturbing aspect of Cline's novel is imaginatively and entertainingly written. The first third of the novel is a marvel. I'd give it ten stars. The second two-thirds, like The Martian in many ways, is a bit repetitive and predictable in a TV-series sort of way.
The novel is worthy and well-written, and the fairy tale aspect is touching. You end up rooting for the heroes and heroine, and even get a small glimpse into the motivations and heart of the villain (though I think he could have been much better presented, a la J. K. Rowling's villains).
All in all, a highly enjoyable book. The best take I've read on VR and online gaming. Plus it's lots of fun!
