ERNEST CLINE, Author of READY PLAYER ONE
06/22/2012 7:00 pm
We're very excited to bring you a reading with Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One, one of our previous Books of the Month and a now longtime bestseller on the Green Apple shelves. Nothing comes closer to summing up this novel than the pitch Green Appler Ashley wrote for the book last fall, so here it goes:
This debut novel from the man who brought us the 2008 film Fanboys delivers the geekdom, and how. To get an idea of what this unique take on a quest novel is like, take one part Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one part 9th level wizard, douse it all heavily with MTV (when MTV actually showed videos), thoroughly mix in every John Hughes movie that features at least three actors from the Brat Pack, add a few dashes of the truck sequence from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and sprinkle with Monty Python, all while listening to your totally 80s mix-tape compilations and then you will begin to comprehend the treasure that is this book.
Intrigued? Confused? Super pumped to read it again? Come check out Ernest Cline's reading in the Granny Smith Room on June 22nd at 7 PM enjoy the fun that is Ready Player One live and in person, just in time for its release in paperback. See you there.
(Update: Cline just called to ask us where to park his Delorean. He's serious.)
