I’m old. I don’t read YA books. I never read Ready Player One. I don’t think I ever heard of it until the movie came out. My awareness of it was basically “Okay, it’s another teen book that’s been made into a movie. Pass.” I lumped it in with Twilight and Hunger Games and Divergent.
But apparently there is some controversy about the book and movie. And I don’t know what the issue is. It’s apparently something over pop culture references? Or maybe misogyny?
