Description

The worldwide bestseller—soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.

In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. 

But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

    As someone who goes through phases, be it playing games, watching movies/tv shows, or reading, I decided I would give this a shot after just recently finishing another book. The movie trailer piqued my interest, and having a preference for consuming the original format, this did not disappoint me. Every moment that I could actually spend watching/playing/reading something, it went straight to this. I look forward to reading his other book soon, once I finally finish some of my other tasks!
  • Interesting but lacking

    It's an ok read, but nothing more. The story is interesting, but extremely cliche. Some of the dialogue was extremely poor, or outright fit for r/thathappened or r/niceguys. There are also a few large gaps in the logic, and I find it surprising that the main character had the forethought to 'cover' every angle. I get he's planning ahead, but he thought of EVERY little detail. Financial problems were solved by: oh he's super popular so he is super rich now too. He never ran out of money, so he never had a problem, which is lazy writing. It's easy to criticize, I know, but is it too hard to steer a novel from the extremely cliche direction to the somewhat original?
  • Great book for an 80s kid

    I own this book and I love it very much. This is one book that will have you wanting to read it again and it will have you wondering if the book will be made into a movie.

    The 80s was a special time full of awesome things. They oft times don't get the respect they deserve, because they seem soft or even frivolous to many. Ready Player One treats all the things of the 80s with kindness and gentle appreciation. This book is a big thank you letter to all the people who contributed to what the 80s was, and an ode to what it meant to the people who grew up within it. The book is a quest and the Holy Grail is the joy the 80s brought to everyone. The killer bunny is the adorable idea of the ultimate virtual world. Listen to Tim... and Halliday, it's a lot more dangerous than it looks. :)
