Book Review – Ready Player One

Ready Player OneReady Player One by Ernest Cline

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

Wow, what a fun and suspenseful ride this book is! I just loved it!

Set in a future ravaged by energy wars and crises, global warming and overpopulation, the only escape from the horrors of life is Oasis, an immersive Virtual Reality world where you can do or be anything you can dream of. Kids now go to school there. People meet and marry there. Sports tournaments take place there. And now, the creator of Oasis has hidden an Easter egg there, and the player who finds it will inherit his vast estate, including ownership of Oasis. The game is on. But Wade is just a broke high school student. How can he compete with teams sponsored by corporate giants willing to spend millions to inherit billions?

I loved this book so much that I’m trying to get my husband to read it, too. The characters are funny and raw and real, the action, both in and out of Oasis, is exciting and the story is full of suspense.
