With the film coming out soon, I thought I would give Ready Player One a try. The Mr. listened to it on audio book during a road trip and disliked it severely.

I have to agree.

Ready Player One genuinely makes me angry. I have now experienced the pile of blather in its entirety. Not only does the author systematically over simplify EVERY teeny, tiny bit of geek culture, he put together the most ham handed and predictable story I think I have ever had the displeasure of reading.

I won’t watch the film in the theater and I probably won’t watch it until it’s free on Netflix. Maybe not even then…
