Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline

I just got done reading Ready Player One by @erniecline, which was recommended to me by @smerrill.

In a word, wow.

In more than a word, this was a great read, full of nostalgia, awesome geek humor, clever puzzles, and a ripping great story.

I finished reading OtherLand, by Tad Williams just a few weeks ago, and their interpretations of what VR/CyberSpace look like are very similar - perhaps because it's what it'll end up looking like some day. But their storytelling is very, very different.

@erniecline's view of what the world will be in just a few short years is pretty chilling - again, because it seems so likely.

Recommended. Buy it here.

    Ready Player One was especially fun via audiobook because it was read by @wilw and he had to call himself and @doctorow “old geezers”. I chuckled a lot at that.
