My whole family had a ton of fun reading Ready Player One, and its sequel Ready Player Two gives more of the same (this is a good thing). There’s a hugely important, intricate puzzle to be solved that requires massive amounts of 80s pop culture knowledge, and our hero and his friends must crack it before the bad guys ruin everything.
I’d reveal more about the plot, but I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Don’t even read the inside cover of the book so you can be surprised.
If you haven’t read Ready Player One, absolutely do that first. In fact, I reread that book just to prep for Ready Player Two, and it paid off.
Recommendation: Read it, definitely! While not quite as good as Ready Player One, it’s still a hoot.
