did not like it
bookshelves: completed, owned

** spoiler alert ** I was excited to get this book. I loved Ernest's other book Ready Player One - which I highly recommend to any gamer who reads- and was ready to devour this. Yes yes, its different books, I know that.

But the story was almost too predictable with some very cringe-worthy conversation. Eg :

A: Why did you call it "XX"?
B: Because it sounds cooler.
(repeat above conversation 2-3 times in the book with different characters)

The characters were boring, I didn't feel attached with any one, not even in death "scenes". Felt like a "too easy" read. And felt so very heavily borrowed from Ender's Game.

Sorry, tried it. Didnt like it.
