Love YA Like Crazy

Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy, where Carrie and Jake rant about young adult books. Beware, there are lots of spoilers and often lots of swearing!

Jun 22, 2015

For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss 'Ready Player One', Ernest Cline's 2011 book, which is available in a variety of formats from Amazon and other booksellers.

Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening! We talk about the horror of office jobs, why it is important that you only aim harmless lasers at your eyes, and the awkward conversations about shaving that inevitably result when you move in with someone. We also quote They Might Be Giants and engage in a certain amount of swearing.

In the next episode, we'll be discussing Gwenda Bond's 2015 novel 'Fallout', which features a young Lois Lane. It's currently available in hardcover and as an ebook.
