Today I’m back with another book review but this time I’m reviewing Ernest Cline’s sequel to ‘Ready Player One’, which is ‘Ready Player Two’. I'm sorry this one is quite late posting, I've been meaning to share it for weeks now but I've been sick on and off and just haven't yet gotten around to posting it. But never fear you will now be able to read my thoughts on this subject.
If you read my review for ‘Ready Player One’ you will know that I really enjoyed it so ‘Ready Player Two’ had a lot to live up to when it came to being at the same level or better for me to enjoy it as much as the original. Spoiler it did live up to my expectations but let me tell you a bit more about it first.
Ready Player One was the debut and smash hit novel from Ernest Cline, Its filled with lots of 80’s Trivia and Retro Gaming references. It’s a retro gamers dream. Cline’s debut novel was also translated into a movie format that was then directed by non-other than Steven Spielberg, I mean if Spielberg thinks it’s good enough to turn into a movie it must be pretty good right.
I decided to read Ready Player One after watching the movie, but luckily enough by the time I did get around to reading it had forgotten what happened in the movie so I was really able to read without comparing the two. As part of this review, I do also want to touch on certain aspects of the book vs. the movie, comparing what differences they have and perhaps even tell you which one I preferred storyline wise.
In today's blog post I'm going to share with you my first quarterly recap for my '2021 Reading Challenge', with the first three months of the year over I thought I would give you a little update on how its going, as well as share links to any book reviews I have shared.
Have you ever wondered what your favourite fairytales might look like if they were actually set in a far distant future? Where they might have access to advanced technology and could even live on the moon. Well Marissa Meyer’s series ‘The Lunar Chronicles’ may just be what you’re looking for, she takes the fairytales we all love and know, like Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and even Snow White and puts them in a far distant future where technology has advanced far beyond what we currently know and Cinderella is actually a cyborg, living in New Beijing working as a mechanic.
