Show Notes

This week it's done. We're done. Nate is done, most of all. We read every Ready Player Book part-by-part. That is a total of two books, but it feels like a million. A million shitty books. Every chapter is so densely packed with references, idiocy, escapism, and the rampant justification for an existence not worth having. Every time you dig into one wrong point you run into ever more worse points and poor writing. So like... we're done. We're done. We're finally done. 

Thankfully Ernest also seems to be done because Part 3 of this book is 5 or 6 chapters. I guess there wasn't really anywhere to go with after Part 2 ended with "and then the loser protagonist basically won". If we're lucky and fortunate he'll stop writing and go away. If he ever does come out with Ready Player Zero... let us know if you want us to review it because I really don't want to.
