The book comes out tomorrow! I really enjoyed the movie, and when I heard about this book coming out I realised I’d never actually read the first book. So I’m reading it now. Hoping to finish it in the next couple of days then jump straight into the sequel
It’s interesting how closer to reality the book is compared to when it first came out. Virtual Reality is really a thing now, I have an Oculus Quest 2 headset and it’s not far removed from what’s described in the book. In fact, the author, Ernest Cline is actually doing a book launch event inside a VR app called Bigscreen, which I’m hoping to attend!
Anyone else read the first book or seen the movie? It was so cool when they were filming it, because a lot of the outdoor stuff was filmed here in Birmingham, where I live. Steven Spielberg shut down two big sections of the city centre and I remember seeing the sets and all the Hollywood video/audio trucks.
