After countless pages of Worldbuilding and freeing child slaves when our hero felt like it, Ernest Cline finally lets some things happen in this section. The action kicks off when a Gunter and a Sharter listen to a Morissey song in silence and it doesn’t let up from there! By the time we’re done, there’s been a kidnapping, a shareholder’s meeting, and the rollout of a new firmware update. Also, Cline introduces his most annoying tic yet: telling us information again that he just told us. And by the time we’re done with this section, there’s been a kidnapping, a shareholder’s meeting, and the rollout of a new firmware update.

One Reply to “Episode 91: Ready Player 2 – A Constant Loop of Push It”
I cracked open my copy of Ready Player Two, much like Bastian opening up the book titled “The NeverEnding Story”, a book featured in the 1984 film titled “The NeverEnding Story”. I had set my Alexa motion tracker to begin playing “NeverEnding Story”, the 1984 theme song to the 1984 film “The NeverEnding Story”. Of course, I also had this hooked up to my retro CRT big screen television to play alongside the music video “NeverEnding Story” by Limahl, a musical artist who in 1984 had recorded “NeverEnding Story”, a 1984 song used for the theme of “The NeverEnding Story”, a 1984 movie of which I am referencing.
