Ready Player One

While Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is not a new read, I have heard it’s a must read, so I thought I would add it to my TBR pile for 2019. And, boy am I glad I did. I was completely sucked in, and I don’t even like video games. In 2045, Wade Watts spends his days in virtual school and playing in the virtual OASIS world. He devotes his life to trying to solve the puzzle left by the creator of OASIS which would achieve an ultimate prize of millions of dollars. Along the way, he makes friends and dodges death. This is absolutely not the kind of book I would typically pick up, but I loved it. It was completely engrossing, creative, and fascinating. If you haven’t read it, I would grab it. You won’t be disappointed.

    • Gayle, I think you will enjoy it. I didn’t get the 80s video game references (except to PAC Man), but you could skim those parts. It’s really clever and a fast, fun read. I was surprised by how much my 13-year old AND I both loved it. 🙂

  1. This is not my kind of book either but I thought it was great fun. One word of caution, the movie is terrible. It’s not just bad, it’s awful.
