Ready Player One is a love letter to the 80s, especially the geeky side of 80s culture.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is another book to add to your to-read list if you are a geek. There's a lot of hype surrounding this book, so I may have been slightly underwhelmed, but it was overall enjoyable and worth reading.

It's a science fiction dystopia, essentially about playing a video game. It's set in a bleary future where people almost exclusively live in a virtual reality game. The plot involves some teenagers trying to find an Easter egg in the game to win a fortune.

I dunno what to call this. Sci-fi? There's really no science, just some tech advances. Eh. Whatever.

I am a bit of a nerd (married to a geek), so take this with a grain of salt... but I just finished reading "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline, and it was awesome! Maybe the best book I've read this year! A sci-fi, futuristic dystopia... adventure.... mixed with a copious amount of 1980s pop culture. The story totally drew me in! It definitely has potential of being an great movie!
