Such a moving and inspiring story through the beautiful way the author describes things. The narrator did a fabulous job and drew me into the story from beginning to the end.

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life - until the unthinkable happens.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

I absolutely loved this book. I would listen to it for hours immersed in the story within it's futuristic distopian world, chearing on the top 5 through all of their adventures. The narrator did an amazing job capturing the emotion and making the characters come to life through a reading. I highly recommend this book. It has me wanting to see the movie. I hope it does the book justice.
