slickrick216: Way different than the movie. I actually preferred it as the movie justifiability leaves a lot out and condenses the story.

Ask HN: Best books you read in 2012
Urgo: I read a number of good books but hands down my favorite that I read in 2012 was Ready Player One
charliepark: ...was the best book I read this year, and the best in recent memory. My wife — who isn't into video games or much of 80's culture — loved it as well.
elliottcarlson: An excellent story that really made me nostalgic to my younger years - definitely recommend this one.
