Ya know, lots of people have been shitting on Ready Player One lately, and I don't really get why. Everyone's all like "Psh, it's all just pop culture references with a shitty plot, it's not nearly as mind-blowing and life-changing as my favorite book," which seemed to be missing the point a little.
It's the book equivalent of a summer blockbuster. It's just a quick, fun read. Chill out homies.
