I know I’m behind the times, but I just got around to Ready Player One and really enjoyed it. If you’re a fan of post-apocalyptic novels involving virtual reality and ’80s references galore, then I highly recommend it. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite quotes form the book:

You’re probably wondering what’s going to happen to you. That’s easy. The same thing is going to happen to you that has happened to every other human being who has ever lived. You’re going to die.

Maybe it isn’t a good idea to tell a newly arrived human being that he’s been born into a world of chaos, pain, and poverty just in time to watch everything fall to pieces.

People who live in glass houses should shut the fuck up.

Looking around, I wondered why Halliday, who always claimed to have had a miserable childhood, had later become so nostalgic for it.

It was almost 8 o’clock. Time to make the donuts.

No one in the world gets what they want and that is beautiful.

I’m a little sad I’ve finished it because it was such a fun ride. Any recommendations for what I should read next?
