Rahael’s #CBR4 Review #15: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I’ve been struggling with what to write about Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One for almost a month now because while I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, I don’t necessarily think it was a great book.  It’s been reviewed a number of times already this year, and the target audience probably overlaps quite well with the Pajiba readership (in the 25-40 age range, interested in popular culture, movies, video games in a more than superficial way).  Although it’s a really fun adventure, the book is over-stuffed with trivia and I think Cline got a little too caught up in the gimmicky aspects of the novel and forgot about plot consistency.
