Book Fight!

Tough love for literature

Book Fight Classic: Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline (from April 2013)

1 Comment

Hey, everybody. Due to a death in Tom’s family, there’s no new episode this week. Instead we’re re-releasing an episode from the archives, for those of you who haven’t been listening since 2013, or just want to revisit a “classic” Book Fight. We were both so much younger! You can probably hear it in our voices.

In this episode, Tom’s former college roommate, Kevin Greway, joins us to talk about Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. Kevin’s an avowed non-reader, so we were curious to hear how his take on this popular book might be different from ours. You can read the original post here.

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or download the mp3 file. Or check us out in the iTunes store, where you can subscribe (for free) and get each new episode automatically delivered to your mobile device.

We’ll be back next week with an all-new episode. Hope you enjoy this blast from the (not-so-distant) past!

One thought on “Book Fight Classic: Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline (from April 2013)

  1. My condolences to Tom and his family.

    Also: This was a fun episode to listen to after all this time. I was vaguely aware that Ryan Lochte was some sort of reality star in addition to a swimmer, so hearing about him via the TV Guide bits at the end — and knowing his pending disgrace — was kinda hilarious.
