Ready Player One

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline After trying out a sample of this book, I was hooked. I knew I had to read it. Unfortunately, the action kind of stopped after the prologue. It was a lot of world building, which of course is important, but I kind of missed the action from the prologue. Also, the way the world building was told, was rather boring.

When the story started to unfold, everything got better. It's not that exciting a story, but it still has that kind of "just one more page..."-feeling to it.

What makes this book interesting is that you kind of forget that there is an actual world outside of this computergame. The writer uses the reality to make a very realistic-looking game, and you have to concentrate hard not to forget that it's a game. It's not the easiest thing to seperate the two worlds. And this is where the writing is good.

Over all this was a good book, but I found it to be a bit too predictable, even though it had a twist. I was disappointed with this book, because after reading the sample, I had really high expectations. Sadly, this book couldn't reach them. This book is made of cliffhangers at the end of each chapter.
