In the not-so-distant future, people spend most of their day (if not all of it) jacked into OASIS, living online lives not possible in the burned out reality of 2044. When the creator of OASIS, James Halliday, dies and leaves his entire fortune up for grabs, millions of players race to solve Halliday’s final puzzle: a complex game based on everything he loved about 80s pop culture. Wade Watts is a dedicated player, but when he becomes the first person to earn a place on the game’s scoreboard, he becomes the target of every player in the system who seeks Halliday’s prize-including some who are willing to kill for it. Ready Player One is a fun read and a real treat for fans of gaming, nerd culture or 80s nostalgia.
