Ready Player One

Ernest Cline

( 2011 ) ISBN: 9788876383441

Much like the 80s, the book started so so, had a great middle, and a rushed movie ending. The dystopian setting with the virtual reality escape made for a great back and forth. The social and economic commentary on corporations vs hackers was a bit too obvious. If you've played an MMPORPG, the virtual reality explanations will be a bit tacky, if not you'll be amazed by what the future holds. The ending felt a bit rushed, this would have made a better series, but it's an interesting and nostalgic read.

The Eighties

The Calligrapher

This is a fantastic book about a single guy who falls hard for a girl. This book is a nice real life story thats a good read for both sexes.

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

When I read this it was the third and final book in the John Rain series, so there is a bit of a conclusion here.

Planet Of Adventure

Jack Vance

One of the best Sci-Fi adventure books you will ever read. Thoroughly immersive and enjoyable. Why isn't this book a movie yet?
