‘Ready Player One’ is a terrible book and it will be a terrible movie
and goes from there.
The criticism is familiar for anyone who’s read reviews of the book: allegedly it focuses too much on nostalgia at the expense of story and character. Actually, I don’t completely disagree. But I loved the book in a big way. Capturing people’s attention is getting more and more difficult, and sometimes being a bit over-the-top is called for.
Agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments. -m
