I really wish I hadn't read this. As a huge fan of Ready Player One, when I heard this book was coming out I had mixed feelings. On one hand, I was super excited to dive back into this amazing world and some of my favorite characters, but on the other hand, I was nervous if it would be as good as the book I had fallen in love with. Unfortunately, this book fell flat on its face for me.

My wonderful characters fell apart with in the first few chapters, and it almost felt like it was ok with the author, that their back story was just brushed under the rug and it never existed.

The story its self couldn't keep my attention. How could this be?!?! I only really cared about what was happening in the last few chapters, not a good sendoff for something that has been so anticipated. Next time, I'm going to listen to my gut and not ruin something that I have loved for so long.
