Episode 3 – Ducks and Hairy Knuckled Chucks

It’s another classic episode of 372 Pages We’ll Never Get Back!

We’ll guess whether passages came from RP1 Fan Fiction or the novel itself, break down our hero’s obsession with the definitely-a-sexy-lady Art3mis, guess what’s in James Halliday’s bedroom, and check in with Edgar Nash: Gunter Expert! Then we’ll read some listener mail and nominate the Dumb Sentence of the Week.

This episode covers chapters 9 thru 13 of Ready Player One. For next time, read thru chapter 18, page 189 in our edition.

  1. I take exception to the comment about the two of you not being in the target audience. I was born in 1970, so I remember most of the 70s and all of 80s very, very well. This book is wishful thinking about a culture that didn’t exist. Sure, there were gaming geeks who pretty much lived for their RP or video games, but for most of us, we played Atari or Intellivision an hour a day after school, and spent a dollar in the arcade at the mall when our parents dropped us off, but that was it. Of course, being female means I’m not in the target audience for this book either, despite falling squarely into the correct age group and having always been considered a bit of a nerd.
