Ha, the amount of hate in this thread is amusing but predictable from a such a shallow board as /tv/. Even a seventh year could note the level of penmanship, nuance, and craft that went into a great literary work like Ready Player One.

Truly it is a fascinating read that plays with the very human notion of obsession and delves deep into a exploration of our everyday interactions with the technological world, asking difficult questions about reality and what it means to be human in the process.

I bet you plebs thought American Psycho was bad too because "muh ocd narrator and all the references."

My first thought is, since this is a Willy Wonka plot, the rich dead guy created such a massive trivia challenge in the hopes that his successor would carry on his legacy because the winner would have an extremely similar decision making process, having grown in the same pop culture environment and taken in the same moral lessons and goals. There's diversity in any fanbase, but if you somehow could filter the entire human race for someone who likes EXACTLY everything you've ever liked, you probably share a lot with him culturally/socially/morally/etc.

My second thought is I probably put more thought into that concept than the guy that actually wrote the book.

oh yeah he had interest in religion, but I wouldn't call him a "devout Christian" by any stretch of the imagination. Fedoras from both the atheist and the theist sides always make it sound like every scientist in the last 400 years was shaped solely by some easily-categorised religious views

>I'm a 90s kid but thought the book was epic

Come on man at least leave "epic" out if you're just going to try and stir shit up. This is just too obvious.
>>
>>64602174
>Yes indeed. Anime and live-action

Yet he proceeds to list only versions of certain anime that were cut to hell and back to the point where they're pretty much a new show.
>>
>>64609718
I can see why it's so popular if these few pages posted here accurately represent the whole book. The constant 80s references are pretty much jacking off those I'M SUCH A NERD XD types for being aware of a show that was popular 30 years ago.

>>64619643
Very much so. Its as millenial as they come. The book is a fast read, because half of it is fucking references and the other half is poorly fleshed out and uninspired. It felt like the thing was proof read or ghostwritten by Seth Macfarlance or any pop culture reference spewing "geeknerd"

I wouldn't mind this so much if it weren't for the name dropping on top of it. Gundam fans already know what the hell the RX-78 is from and just simply listing the series it's from won't do anything to help anyone who doesn't know about Gundam.

Also who the fuck name drops mecha anime to show their nerd cred yet says "Robotech" instead of the actual anime Robotech took its footage from? Some of this shit reads like he just copy pasted info he got from wikipedia and doesn't actually know anything about the franchises he's referencing.

I was born in '81.

This book is trash.

I loved it though and with Spielberg directing think the film will be amazing
>>
Shit books sometimes make for decent movies so there may be hope

>90's kid

>people think Spielbergo is going to make an 100% accurate adaptation of the book

He took the novel of JAWS and threw it right in the garbage can. He can do whatever the fuck he wants with this.

Dunno why you guys sperg out so much, the audio book from that shit helped me fall asleep instantly for at least 3 months.

You know that friend of yours who thinks reciting lines from Monty Python is the pinnacle of humor? That's basically this book.

No, literally, that's the climax of the book.

sad thing is that I know people who are exactly like this. outside of references, they have zero personality

I'm glad that Mecha Anime will never be mainstream enough to be ruined by appearing in a work like this.

Well yeah. The ones that aired on US television in the 70's and 80's, which is what the Willy Wonka type was obsessed with. Makes perfect sense in the context of the book.
>>
>>64606806

I've said this a couple of times now, but as this gets closer to production and starts picking up more steam they're going to catch so much shit for this from the exact people who championed this book and made it popular.

>not getting Abigail Breslin

Complete and utter fuck-up right off the bat.

>>64600838
This. It's like a Family Guy episode without the jokes.
Skip this cheap shit and just make Snowcrash already.

I started reading the book and the writing is fucking awful and the most of the gaming references are cringe. The book seems to be aimed at 14 year old boys.
