Since my kids were born my life changed a lot. I’m sure all parents say those words sooner or later, because being a parent changes a lot of things in the way we organize our life.
In my case I lost track of at least 6 years of various fandoms, this is not a joke.
Besides the typical blockbuster movies, series or very famous books I lost some pearls or in this case a true diamond.
Ready Player One is a novel that touches a lot of my favorite things and fandoms. It also portraits online friendships in a way which I totally understand.
It’s an ode to the 80’s and a great one at that, it also doesn’t sugarcoat some old and new problems of our society.
I can’t write more or I’ll spoil it and believe me, I don’t want to do that.
I devoured the US version in two days and I truly wish it was bigger, luckily there are rumors of a second book in the works. Plus a movie will be out next year, so in a way I’m happy I was living under a rock and only knew about Ready Player One some weeks ago.
To redeem myself I already ordered the US version of Armada another book from Ernest Cline.
Curious fact, the Ready Player Two and Ready Player Three web domains are reserved…just saying. 🙂
Fun fact, Andy Weir the author of the novel The Martian wrote a short story called Lacero which is now canon in the universe of Ready Player One and was published in the 2016 edition of the book. \m/
