Ready Player One - Ernest Cline A world at stake.
A quest for the ultimate prize.
Are you ready?

And the geeks will inherit the earth!

I loved this book but then again I play World of Warcraft so I guess I
would wouldn’t I?

It’s a feel-good novel which will appeal to geeks and non-geeks alike
especially if you are a child of the 80s as the story has its roots in
1980's pop culture. This is the hook that will make it or break it for most readers.

This dystopian future shows the whole of mankind locked into a gaming
heaven, (a mashup of virtual reality, Second Life, and World of
Warcraft) where you can be anything you want, while the real world is
going to hell.

The image of the precariously stacked trailer homes has
stayed with me…

The mix of sci-fi with classic 80′s pop-culture is really well done
and half the fun of the novel is spotting the obscure references,
I loved the fairytale of the evil corporation pitching their ‘best
people’ at this quest for the ultimate prize against the gamers doing
for the love and enjoyment of the challenge. An easy read that is
exciting and fun, with characters you immediately engage with.

It really is a charming, rollicking, romp and though set a
dystopic 2044 it really is just a good old fashioned adventure
story.
