's review

it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, sci-fi

Ernest Cline does not have an imagination, but he's crazy about eighties pop culture and he wants us to know all about it. This is the tired old hero's journey plot armature, dressed up with cyberpunk cliches and unending wikipedia entries about old school videogames and John Hughes movies. If you're nostalgic about paleo geek culture I'm sure this will float your boat. Myself I expect at least a modicum of aspirational future world building from my sci-fi.
