It's the year 2044, and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty, and disease are widespread. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation. For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late twentieth century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle. Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.

4.5 Guide the future by the past
I FINALLY read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, y'all. I absolutely loved the film adaptation of it and while I also enjoyed the book (hold on to your seats, folks) I preferred the movie version. While the book was able to go into more details in terms of world building and the puzzle solving aspec...

4.0 READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline, narrated by Wil Wheaton
READY PLAYER ONE has been on my TBR for years and now I'm sorry that I waited so long to read it. I'm glad that I listened to the audio instead of reading the book. There were some very dense paragraphs, that came off as information dumps, but on audio Wil Wheaton made even those interesting. S...

4.0 Ready Player One
The most amazing fast forward and flashback at the same time. If we have oasis in real life - you would never see me walk out of my room ever again. Going outside is highly overrated. Ready Player One is time traveling without the use of a speed force or a machine developed by mad scientists. Whi...

3.0 Ready Player One
This was interesting. I'm not keen on arcade games and much of the 80s' obsession with them has passed me by. But, ... I do appreciate that Ernest Cline used them as a means to turn a nostalgic reference to them into a sci-fi story with a few good points about the possibilities and dangers of a s...
