The Author and Their Work
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

Ernest Cline includes a lot of references from the 1980s in his novel Ready Player One.  Since this is the case, it seems the author loves the era, as he grew up in it.  I feel as though he modeled his characters to be like him in that he loved the '80s, and that is also the reason why there are so many pop culture references from the decade.  It is obvious to tell he adored this time in history because of the characters and references.

quote 2018-04-22 17:18
“I felt like a kid standing in the world's greatest video arcade without any quarters, unable to do anything but walk around and watch the other kids play.”
― Ernest Cline, Ready Player One
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

I chose this quote from the book because it shows a lot about the main character, Wade.  It is a metaphor, and it has a deep meaning.  Wade was never rich, and he could never do anything other kids could in the virtual world OASIS because it cost money to go anywhere.  He was stuck watching his friends as they experienced amazing things, not able to do anything because he and his family were broke.  I feel many people can relate to this, too.  While others can go on costly vacations to exotic places or buy the newest technology and fashion, some have to deal with the bear minimum and can only congratulate and watch their peers as they have a blast.  For those reasons, I chose this quote.

Introductions
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

     As a reader, I prefer genres of sci-fi and fantasy.  My favorites have to be the more popular selections, such as the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Percy Jackson series.  But as I get older, I am beginning to grow out of my phase of just reading magical, easy-to-swallow books, and I desire something a little grittier.  Ready Player One by Ernest Cline captivated me for this reason.  The sci-fi genre kept me as mystified as any of the books I had listed before had, but this book in particular quenched my thirst for a story presenting more controversial and mature topics.  Topics in this novel include the thought (and warning) of what will happen to the future of our Earth if we treat it as badly as we are now.  Poverty, pollution, famine, and more are presented in the world where the characters reside in the year 2044.  It really makes you think.  I have enjoyed reading Ready Player One so far and hope that by the end I am as satisfied as I am now.

Book Review : Ready player one ernest cline
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
 March 3-24

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.

It's the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place.

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets.

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune--and remarkable power--to whoever can unlock them.

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that Halliday's riddles are based in the pop culture he loved--that of the late twentieth century. And for years, millions have found in this quest another means of escape, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday's icons. Like many of his contemporaries, Wade is as comfortable debating the finer points of John Hughes's oeuvre, playing Pac-Man, or reciting Devo lyrics as he is scrounging power to run his OASIS rig.

And then Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle.

Suddenly the whole world is watching, and thousands of competitors join the hunt--among them certain powerful players who are willing to commit very real murder to beat Wade to this prize. Now the only way for Wade to survive and preserve everything he knows is to win. But to do so, he may have to leave behind his oh-so-perfect virtual existence and face up to life--and love--in the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

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

Review :
This book was great this is set in the future where there are like these VR goggles and the man James Haliday created this world called the oasis but when he died he made an easter egg and if you find it you get control of the oasis . And wade is determined to find it and one day he finds the key and becomes popular and he meets Artemis and they start to chat and he's in love with her . The sixers get in contact with wade and threatens him and blows up his aunts trailer fucking crazy people . Wade leaves home and gets his own place him and Artemis hang out and then he tells her he loves her and she stops talking to him . and this is where it gets crazy the sixers killed daito and made it look like a suicide . Wade gets himself to be taken by this company and gets information he escapes and releases the information and haliday's friend helps them come o his place so wade, shoto , Artemis , and aech picks up wade and aech turns out to be a girl . they all go to oasis and wade finds the egg and then wade talks to Artemis/samantha I really enjoyed this book. 

Quotes: 
“People who live in glass houses should shut the fuck up.

I created the OASIS because I never felt at home in the real world. I didn't know how to connect with the people there. I was afraid, for all of my life, right up until I knew it was ending. That was when I realized, as terrifying and painful as reality can be, it's also the only place where you can find true happiness. Because reality is real.”
