Ready Player One

Το έτος 2044 ο πραγματικός κόσμος έχει γίνει ένα πολύ άσχημο μέρος για να ζει κανείς Όπως οι περισσότεροι άνθρωποι στον πλανήτη ο Ουέιντ Ουότς δραπετεύει από τη ζοφερή καθημερινότητά του περνώντας τις περισσότερες ώρες του συνδεδεμένος με το OASIS μία ευρύτατα διαδεδομένη εικονική ουτοπία που σου επιτρέπει να είσαι αυτός που θέλεις να είσαι και να ζήσεις να παίξεις και να ερωτευτείς σε έναν από τους δέκα χιλιάδες πλανήτες που περιέχειΚαι όπως οι περισσότεροι άνθρωποι στον κόσμο ο Ουέιντ ονειρεύεται να είναι αυτός που θα ανακαλύψει τον πρώτο λαχνό που κρύβεται μέσα σε αυτόν τον εικονικό κόσμο Σε κάποιο σημείο στο εσωτερικό αυτού του γιγάντιου διαδικτυακού παιδότοπου ο δημιουργός του OASIS Τζέιμς Χάλιντεϊ έχει κρύψει μια σειρά από παράξενους γρίφους που θα χαρίσουν αμύθητη περιουσία κα?. I originally gave this book 3 stars as harmless lightweight fun but my opinion of it declined as time went by Then after reading Armada I fully realized what a talentless one trick hack that Cline really is so I changed this rating Plus his outraged hardcore fans kept coming on here and telling me that I missed the point since I didn t give it 5 stars so I might as well give them something to really be mad about If you re one of those Cline fans who wants to whine about it in the comments I will just delete it and block youAdventures in Time Mowing After my laptop fused to my lawn mower due to a freak lightning strike I discovered that I could use it to travel through time Wow where d you come from I m from 2011 Got a time mower and decided to come to the future I ll spare you the full origin story My name s Kemper I m Wade Watts Welcome to 2044 Thanks I gotta say things are looking kind of grim around here Are those mobile homes stacked up like hillbilly skyscrapers Yeah I live in one of them We ve had a lot of problems once the cheap fossil fuels started running out Life kinda sucks ass these days Fortunately we ve got the OASIS What s that It s this virtual reality that s kind of a combination of the Internet and the biggest MMORPG ever made Here put this on and I ll show you Hey this is pretty sweet Wade But what s with all this old stuff here in your virtual room It looks like the 80s vomited in here Oh it s part of my research for the contest See the guy who invented the OASIS was this old nerd named James Halliday He left an Easter egg hidden somewhere in the OASIS and whoever finds it wins the prize He was totally obsessed with the 80s and nerdly stuff like computers sci fi cartoons movies comics and video games He left three keys to three gates hidden in here and the clues have to be stuff that he loved So a lot of people like me have to know all about the 80s to hunt for the egg How long has this been going on For years now Nobody has found the first key yet And you what Watch movies from the 80s Listen to the music Read his favorite books Play old video games It s even bigger than that Because of the contest the entire world is obsessed with the 80s The clothes and hairstyles are considered cool again Really Well I gotta get the hell out of here then Thanks for showing me this Wade How do I log out You re leaving already Don t you want toOh my god You said you were from 2011 And you re in your 40s right Well just barely So you actually lived through the 80s Afraid so High school class of 1988 That s awesome You gotta tell me all about it Kemper Kid why would you want to hear about that You re sitting here with enough computer power to download everything from the collected works of Shakespeare to the entire run of The Wire and you want to hear about the 80s Just for a contest I love the 80s It was the coolest time ever Uh not really In fact I think the 90s beat the shit out of them That not worrying about the Cold War thing was a relief and the music was a lot better Plus we got to wear flannel That was fun But you got to play the old video games in the actual arcades and you saw the first generation of home computers come out Plus music videos and John Hughes movies and Rubik s Cubes and Michael Jackson s Thriller album and Yeah Wade I lived through it all I remember when MTV played music videos and when Eddie Murphy was funny But you re making me sad kid Why Lemme tell you a story Wade About ten years after I got out of high school an old buddy I had stayed in touch with had a birthday bash and invited a bunch of us that used to run around together So we re at his house drinking and playing cards just like the old days and catching up and playing Remember when It was a lot of fun but we d been listening to hair metal and classic rock all night and at one point I was flipping through the CD s Actual CD s Not downloads Hell I m so old even my post high school stories are dated now Yes Wade real CD s Anyhow I found a new Foo Fighters album and I put it in And this one guy made a face and asked me why I had taken the Guns n Roses out And I said something like the nostalgia had been fun but I needed something from that decade Being completely serious he said that he didn t know how I could listen to that stuff and that he still listened to the same exact music we did in high school He had just replaced his old cassettes with CD s The guy had completely managed to miss grunge and was perfectly happy with the same play list in 1998 that he d been listening to in 1988 And that was one of the saddest things I ever heard Wade But maybe he just really liked that stuff I liked it too once upon a time And I can still belt out a pretty good version of Relax when Frankie Goes to Hollywood comes on the radio but it was a certain time and place Now it s done I find it depressing that someone of Gen X would want to be stuck there and never moved on to anything new But it got worse after that Wade Because we got older and then the media started catering to us by going for nostalgia trips on everything from trying to remake the Knight Rider TV show to shitty movies like The Transformers and GI Joe to the goddamn Smurfs I m tired of it in 2011 Wade I don t want a new Indiana Jones movie I want the NEXT Indiana Jones But no one is working on that because all of us got obsessed with regurgitating our childhoods over and over That is kind of sad Kemper What s even sadder is seeing it happen to a generation that didn t even live through it When I was a teenager I got sick to death of baby boomer nostalgia and there d be these kids my age who tried to be like damn dirty hippies by wearing tie dye shirts and going to listen to Grateful Dead tribute bands They were nostalgic for an era that wasn t even theirs and I always thought it was a waste Don t be like that Wade You seem like a nice kid Don t sit here watching Family Ties reruns and playing Space Invaders and making jokes about Ewoks That was then This is now It s your time and you should be out there trying to find the stuff that will become part of your own memories of growing up not rehashing ours Gee Kemper That s a really good point You ve opened my eyes Thanks a lot You re welcome Wade By the way what the hell was this prize that was so good that it got the entire world doing the safety dance again Oh the winner gets the controlling interest in Halliday s company and his personal fortune which is about 240 billion dollars Did you say 240 billion Dollars Yes so how about we log off Maybe I ll take a walk and see if I can find this girl I like I ve been Screw that Fire this rig up Wade Put on some Def Leppard and find me a pair of acid washed jeans and some high top Reeboks Let s start looking for clues For 240 billion I ll live through the 80s again I didn t actually hate this book It did a lot of very clever stuff regarding an entire virtual universe And for a member of Gen X it was a fast and fun romp down memory lane It was kind of like Snow Crash meets the Scott Pilgrim Vs The World movieBut I ve got a personal pet peeve against people trying to live in the past and since this book is nostalgia porn the basic premise did rub me the wrong way The idea that the kids of the 2040s are just watching episodes of 80s TV shows and playing Donkey Kong really kind of depressed me I stole that phrase from Flannery s review Sorry Flannery It was just too goodI might have been able to get past it a little easier if at least one of the kids said something like Jesus I hate this 80s bullshit I can t wait until his freakin contest is over so I can live in the here and now But instead all of them treat it like it s the greatest entertainment ever So even though a few post 80s things like Firefly or the Lord of the Rings movies get mentioned we re supposed to believe that nerd pop culture reached a zenith in the 80s and nothing worth geek obsession happened between 1990 and 2040 Sorry but that seems kind of unlikely and the kind of wishful thinking that an aging Gen Xer would write as he pines for his glory days
