Re-Review – Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

readyplayerone2.jpgCheck out my original review here.

I stand by everything I said before, the biggest difference was that this time it was an audiobook read by the silky tones of Wil Wheaton. My favorite part was when Mr. Wheaton got to read about himself in the book…..it’s not actually funny but it was ironic funny.

Wade/Parzival is still OP and still a jerk.

I also picked up on the political nature of some of the various elements. It’s not overly burdensome but I did notice it and one or two instances felt a bit forced or contrived.

It’s still a great book and a fun read. This was one of the first books I read and reviewed for the blog, 2 and a half years ago, and I can’t really add anything to it….. I guess I’ll need to wait longer before re-reviewing. Ok, the only reason I did it this time was because I had it on audiobook and the movie came out recently……which I still need to see and it doesn’t come out on DVD for almost two months. Basically, it was a matter of convenience.
