Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY STEVEN SPIELBERG

**A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready?**

In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the OASIS, a vast virtual world where most of humanity spends their days.

When the eccentric creator of the OASIS dies, he leaves behind a series of fiendish puzzles, based on his obsession with the pop culture of decades past. Whoever is first to solve them will inherit his vast fortune – and control of the OASIS itself.

Then Wade cracks the first clue. Suddenly he’s beset by rivals who’ll kill to take this prize. The race is on – and the only way to survive is to win.

‘Wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut’ Independent

‘Part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance, and all heart’ CNN

‘Ernest Cline’s novel deserves to be a modern classic’ SciFiNow

‘Gorgeously geeky, superbly entertaining, this really is a spectacularly successful debut’ Daily Mail

    Read the book within 48 hours. That tells you something. I have not read a book like this in years. Intriguing theme, interesting characters and above all smart plot. Many books i open have me re-reading a sentance to try and understand what’s going on at some point. However i can’t say this is one of those books.I can definitely see this book becoming a major-motion picture. Look forward to the film. Hats off to you, Ernest.
  • Amazing to put it lightly

    This book was like a dream come true, this book had me gripped from the first page. A mix between video games and adventure, this by far is one of the best books I've ever read.
  • Hooked from the beginning

    Read the entire book in two days spent literally all day reading it to find out what was next, with a gripping story that appealed to the gamer in me and a romance that appealed to the romantic in me I have recommended this book to many friends
  • So, this is YA fiction.

    I feel that my junior HS aged students may love this book. Great sweeping sections of it describe games and 1980's references that are difficult to fully appreciate without being very familiar with the references. To me, it fully outlined, in elaborate detail, just how difficult, unlikely and ludicrous it is for people who play computer games with such commitment to justify why they are playing. This book suggested a depth of worlds and interesting characters that I hoped would lead to a deeper, or darker place. A world that relies on the joystick skills of a avatar-ed PAC-man enthusiast, a world that could've been so much more. However, it resulted with a good-looking, blond, fit, young white hero who purpose for playing was to win-the-girl he'd stalked from afar. In the end, bits of it were good, but it's more of a cult novel; popular for its game references, not for the writing.
  • Really? Player one

    While the idea of a geeky nostalgia-fest novel might interest you, as it did me... please don't waste your time. Ready player one is terribly written and often anxiety inducing due to how cringey the lead character is. Steer well clear, it's not the book you hope it is.
  • The best book ever!!!

    I've played video games most of life. I love old retro games and vintage things. This book is like a dream com true and is one of if not the best book I've ever read. The story of the book just pulls you in. The facts and references laid out through the book are just great. I had a hard time putting the book down.
