Re: Ready Player One
Ugh. I have been trying to read the book for a few months now. It is horribly written with such a cliche' plot, the only saving grace is the references to 80s culture. I grew up in the 70s and 80s, so I get pretty much all of it. But that can only carry a story so far. If the book is better than the movie, I don't think it will sit too well with me. But maybe visuals will help.
Great book and I loved the movie when it came out. I was in the minority, but I guess people eventually come around. And if you loved the book and haven't read John Steakelys Armor, you owe it to yourself to do so. When asked if he would consider a sequel by JS, Heinlein told him he should write it. So he did.
The Lynch version was dark, moody, and poorly paced. The SciFi channel remake of the late 90s or early 2000s (don't remember exactly) was much more enjoyable (miniseries).
