Put on your haptic feedback suit and jump into the OASIS with us as we discuss Ernest Cline’s Ready Player Two. This is a hate-pisode, and we all knew we’d have mixed feelings going in, but have no fear. The squad is here to detail all of the negative aspects of Ready Player Two, including its trouble with being a sequel, problematic gender representation, and indistinguishable characters. Can Wade get out of the OASIS...again? Will he push the big read button and end it all? What are people on Goodreads saying about this trash fire of a novel? We cover it all on this episode. Spoilers abound as we tear apart this novel and wish for sci-fi with a conscience.
