The curly pages of his book were somewhat subdued tonight.
Skycars, skyambulances, and airvans all flickered through the fuzzy sky.
He was in an old battle jacket that had BOKWINR written in neon tubing across its back.
His hair seemed to jiggle as he flipped through the pages.
He didn’t know he was about to win a paperback book.
For those of us who have been hating Ready Player One before it was cool, the backlash has been weird. Sure, the book is full of sexism, racism, pointless nostalgia, and lists of things. All valid reasons to hate it! But did anyone dumping on the book, or even its fans, actually look at the words on the page? That was my biggest problem with Ready Player One.
The writing was excruciating.
