Wil Wheaton to Narrate Ernest Cline’s READY PLAYER TWO Audiobook
Penguin Random House Audio has announced Wil Wheaton will narrate READY PLAYER TWO, the highly anticipated sequel to Ernest Cline’s #1 New York Times best seller, Ready Player One (also narrated by Wheaton), which was adapted into Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster film of the same name. Random House Audio will publish the audiobook simultaneously with the Ballantine hardcover and e-book editions on November 24.
The audiobook for Ready Player One was the inaugural #1 New York Times audio fiction bestseller when that list launched in March 2018, and was the first book to ever hit #1 in print, e-book, and audio formats. The book went on to spend 7 months on the audio bestseller list in addition to over 100 weeks on New York Times print bestseller lists.
The Ready Player One book and audiobook have been featured on hundreds of “best of” lists around the world, and received numerous honors, including the Alex Award, and was voted one of America’s 100 Most Loved books of all time in PBS’s “The Great American Read.”
In addition to his memorable TV and film roles, including in Stand by Me, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Flubber, and The Big Bang Theory, Wheaton is an acclaimed voice actor and listener-favorite narrator, also performing Cline’s Armada and books by John Green and Randall Munroe.
