Ready Player One - Ernest Cline, Wil Wheaton I loved this book.
Is it because I love video games? Or is it because I do, indeed, love the 80s? Or maybe, just maybe, it is because this was a pretty kickass book?
Yeah, there was a bit of overkill with the 80s references, but the ones I connected with made me really appreciate the level of commitment this book took to write. Unless there were a team of Sixers there, handing off the controls when it came time to write about a specific 80s show/game/song.
Yeah, maybe that's why this novel is so good... A team of writers, each with their own area of decade-specific expertise. That's cool.

Also, I realize now that I might want to spend less time of gaming and more time IRL. Just sayin'...
