I’m currently up to my eyebrows in Freshman Comp papers, but I wanted to take a quick break and recommend a book to some of you. In order to determine if you are one of the “some” I am referring to, please answer the following 7 questions:
1- Were you a teenager at any time between 1977 and 1990?
2- Have you ever played computer games?
3- Have you ever played Dungeons and Dragons?
4- Was your first console game something older than a Sony Playstation?
5- Do you like Science Fiction?
6- Have you ever considered yourself to be a “geek” or “nerd” and felt just fine about that?
7- Have you ever played an MMO?
If you answered “yes” to any 2 of these questions, I am fairly certain you will thoroughly enjoy Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. I can answer yes to all 7 questions and can say without hesitation that I think it’s the most enjoyable read I’ve had all year. A review is coming soon, but don’t wait for it. Go get the book. You’ll thank me the same way I’m thanking my buddy Nick for recommending it to me.
