Author: Ernest Cline

In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.

Beginning:

Everyone my age remembers where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the contest.

Page 57:

You could change your name, age, sex, race, height, weight, voice, hair color, and bone structure. Or you could cease being human altogether, and become an elf, ogre, alien, or any other creature from literature, movies, or mythology.

In the OASIS, you could become whomever and whatever you wanted to be, without ever revealing your true identity, because your anonymity was guaranteed.

Thoughts:

Ready Player One is a pretty popular book and for some reason it wasn’t really on my radar until recently. It sounds like a really interesting book and I’m definitely curious about the OASIS and what the contest is.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
