Ready Player One

Ready Player One

This was my first book read for 2016 but I never really got around to writing about it. This book was nostalgic! A blast from the past! In a world of suffering and chaos set in the future it looked back on the 80s with its songs, movies, and video games and somehow made that decade seem like one of the best times ever. And I wouldn’t disagree completely. But then in the 80s I was in elementary school and life was simple.

Ready Player One also told of a life where people did everything online. From the time they got up to the time they went to bed they were hooked to headgear that made them do everything online. It didn’t feel like such a preposterous idea. Kids these days know how to operate gadgets before they know the alphabet, and in some countries they are recognizing a phenomenon of young adults not even leaving their rooms anymore because they’re glued to screens.

I enjoyed this book and read it in just a few days. But it was also a reminder that there is a world out there that we should interact with. Oh, and that time moves forward. The 80s might have been fun, but I wouldn’t want to relive it. 🙂

Have you read READY PLAYER ONE? What did you think of it?
