Any one read Ready Player One?

The book came out in August. It takes place in 2044. I don't want to say too much, but if your a fan of D&D, Zork, Star Wars, MMO's, and basically most things from the 1980's you should read this.

I started about 11am last Thursday, and was done by about 6. It was the best book I have read in a long time. The guy who wrote it did the screen play for the Fan Boys movie.
I'm currently reading this, and it's a nice bit of brain candy, although I did have to suspend my disbelief a little: crowdsourcing a puzzle like this? No way it'd take as long as it did in the book. :)
Just a followup on this, I have very little time to read and have grown accustomed to audio books on my drive to and from work. This is by far the most fun I have experienced in a book since Hitchiker's Guide. If you are an adolescent of 80s pop culture, take the time for this one. I have been unable to put it down so to speak.
