I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Ready Player One

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline Whoa!! I started out listening to this as an audiobook, but became so engrossed I had to download a digital version. I stormed through it in just a few days. I was immediately sucked into the futuristic world of Wade Watts. I was just as eager to find Halliday's "egg." I've always been a big '80s fan, so this book was a true delight for me. I'm no expert on '80s trivia, but I certainly enjoyed all the references to movies and music from that era. There were a few times when I felt as though the story lagged a little, but I still couldn't convince myself to take a break from reading ;p. I highly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the movie! I know it probably won't be able to fully capture the magic of this book, but it'll still be worth watching. Ready Player One!!!!
