A couple of Decembers ago I found myself in the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport without a novel to read. I left the terminal bookstore with a copy of Cline’s Ready Player One (and this after at least a year of hearing great things about it but feeling it was too “cool” and self-aware). Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, thought Cline distilled pop culture and built his sad world well. Here’s the SDCC-released first trailer for the upcoming movie, directed by Steven Spielberg.
