I adored Ready Player One. It was this nice blend of Willy Wonka and Wargames. Easter eggs abounded. It was every ironic t-shirt I’ve ever sweat in playing 8-bit games in a barcade. Here, Cline tackles the world of space invaders ala The Last Starfighter, Ender’s Game and to some extent Iron Eagle. Only here, I felt like the story was overburdened with too much nerdstalgia to retain it’s structure. I didn’t care much about the characters and I felt like I was getting fois grased with references. It was a little too….too.
