Robin's Reviews > Universe Earth
This book is very tedious to read. They narrative style is a stream of consciousness filled with lists of tv shows/movies, actors and other names and name brands as an attempt at inculcating "pop culture". There are few distinct references and many are just used as poorly placed word play. Where the pop culture references in Ready Player One, which is referred to in the blurb, add a backdrop to the story, these are simply lists of almost any movie, show, actor, candy bar, event, etc.... from the past 40 years. And seriously? 5+ pages of foods that aren't in the food court. I can make lists of stuff. Does it make it a book?
