While I agree it didn’t need a sequel, I still found this read immensely entertaining and a rewarding continuation. The quest felt a bit forced and the pacing of each shard was odd, some 6 pages, others 66, but it was all worth it for the end. The ending furthered the world building of the first book and took it to new heights. It was nice to be back in the OASIS! ( )

Very light, quick, entertaining read. I enjoyed it. Doesn't have much weight/gravity/importance to it but still a fun book. Action/Adventure of a sci-fi world. ( )

As many have pointed out, this is essentially the same book as Ready Player One, without the novelty or compelling characters.

After completing the quest in the original novel, the protagonists are faced with a new challenge, similar to the first, but with world altering implications. The action takes place in the same virtual world as the first with few surprises. At times, the story goes from boring to just downright silly (the entire Prince experience).

There are too many options available to waste your time on this retread. ( )

This book dragged. I truly believe this was everything that was cut from Ready Player One that just didn't fit. There was no need to do a sequel. A sequel that just ripped off the first book and did it poorly.

Once again, my gripe with this writer and this book is that it reads like a tome for all nerdom. There is such a thing as giving too much information. Being bogged down with dates, names, incessant useless information that doesn't move the story along.

I want a story, not a Wiki page of that era.

My review of his other book Armada echos many of the same sentiments as this review because this book did the same thing that the book Armada did- not enough story and too many useless facts.

Such a bummer because Ready Player One is a favorite book of mine that I have re-read 5xs. It never gets old, but this book. Jesus. This really is the first scraps and can't live up to the hype as the first.

Also, the main protagonist Wade Watts was such a jerk. I was so surprised by how insecure, petty, and childish he was in this story. He had redeemable traits in the first book, but in this story, not at all. It's bad when you start rooting for the hero's demise since they are so atrocious. ( )

I was stoked when I heard Cline was working on a sequel to ‘RPO’. I’m dubbing this the “Arcade Series” and even though ‘Armada’ is a stand alone, I’m including it.

The plot follows the High Five days after winning Halliday’s original contest in ‘RPO’ and also follows the same FPC format as well. The reader goes along for the adventure as Wade Watts and experiences everything through him. The plot is simple: bad guy wants something only Wade can get. The bad guy puts Wade on a timer with high stakes, forcing his hand. Wade has to outsmart the quests using rare pop culture knowledge. We visit LOTR, John Hughes’ filmography and several others. This is the same format from ‘RPO’ so don’t ask for any new action. Speaking of action, there wasn’t really anything I’d call epic but there were absolutely action-filled quests in this book. I was hoping for a little better but was happy with what I got. The bad guy sets up some pretty high stakes.

The writing itself is the same as before, very easily accessible to readers. I found, however, that Cline spent a lot of time repeating things, especially in the beginning of the story. Once the adventure was under way, the repetition cooled off a bit. I’d say this was probably to make sure the reader understands the stakes the bad guy has set up better and to really get the reader to understand the ending better.

Since the reader is Wade, we get to understand a few new things about him. Honestly in the beginning of the story he seemed unlikeable. Wade goes through a development arc and comes out the other side changed. The ending is a bit of a twist and made me go “Huh, imagine if...” The rest of the High Five don’t necessarily have development arcs per se but we do see more specialized knowledge from them as well as introducing a few new characters who could essentially spur the series forward.

Overall, the story was a good one and I enjoyed it. If it’s made into a movie, I’d definitely watch it. I’d recommend this for casual readers.
