We need to talk about everything that's wrong with Ready Player One
Kate Erbland. The prize? Here are the biggest ones. Beware: Many spoilers ahead.

How many times do you heard someone say the book was better than the movie? Some books seem so untouchable for being made into a movie that when it happens, there is always disappointment and backlash. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is one of those books that seemed like it could never get the big screen treatment, it was too deep and vast to be able to be represented on film. The Ready Player One movie, however, did not try to recreate the book but I think successfully managed to offer a bit of a different version. Both the book and the movie of Ready Player One have their own unique components that makes them enjoyable as two separate entities.
