How can people vote on a story they have probably not read?

Ready Player One by Scrymarch (4.00 / 2) #6 Sat May 13, 2017 at 07:33:10 AM EST
TE's review remains the perfect description to me, to be point where I am tempted to use it anytime I see Gen-X pandering nostalgia.

I do think it is a book for Gen-X.  But it does strive to be beyond that.  Unlike Armada, which is *just* a shit-show.

I haven't read Ready Player One by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #7 Sat May 13, 2017 at 09:26:48 AM EST
It's popular and I have a natural tendency to avoid popular things.

I've been trying to repress the tendency in myself. It kept me from reading Harry Potter for years, and honestly, those books were fantastic.

At one point I had to ask myself why I was avoiding popular things.  I realized I was trying to make myself more of a unique snowflake by having preferences for media "outside the beaten path."  The truth was that I wasn't really consuming anything really unique or different, and that I was just kidding myself.  Not saying its that way with you, but it was a not entirely pleasant moment of self revelation.

On the plus side, I no longer miss good things because I have my head up my ass.  :-)

It's probably  pretty close read.
