yomikoma: Yomikoma reading (reading)
I just finished reading Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. As the world goes to hell in the 2040s, a billionaire exactly my age gives his inheritance to whoever can learn enough 1980s trivia and puzzle-solving/game-playing skill to find the easter egg hidden in the MMO that ate the internet. A real '80s movie of a book, with humor and danger and romance. Recommended.

Here be spoilers and complaints. )
I'd be interested in hearing other people's thoughts on it (and will probably go searching for reviews now).

If you (like me) are interested in
the culture of the nations of the "East",
then "Journey to the West" is known to you
as source and inspiration of a bunch
of modern stories, films, and such. But have
you actually read the book itself?
I surely haven't. So I'm glad to see
that David Peterson not only has
but also wrote a nice review in which
he summarizes most of how the book's
100 chapters go. He spent five years
in reading it - glad I don't have to, now.
