April Vegan Book Club: Ready Player One

  • April 20, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Vegetarian House

Join us for April's book club meeting. Ready Player One: "At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, READY PLAYER ONE is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut--part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed. It's the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets."

    I was going to come but ended up exhausted from a long night of work last night... hopefully next month I can make it... does next month's book get decided at the meeting? Any heads up what it will be?

    I think it would also make sense to head over to Ground Kontrol afterwards in case anyone wants to play Joust or other games mentioned in the book.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
