Description

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

The worldwide bestseller—now a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.


In the year 2045, 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. 

But 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.

    This is the first book I’ve read in 15 years or better. I will admit I was inspired by the amazing movie to read it after my 100th viewing. Even though the movie is amazing by all means this book is 1000 times better. I loved every second I read it. READ THIS BOOK!!!
  • Amazing!!!👏🏼

    Ernest Cline knocked this one out of the ballpark. The climax is action packed, the characters are relatable, the plot is unique and there’s some cheeky humor. And of course, there’s the thousands of 80’s references. Great read for teens and adults alike.

    One of the G.O.A.T.’s when it comes to books! Witty, hilarious book that exited reader through their tenth time reading it and beyond! Highly Recommended!

    I’m sure I can’t write a review greater than what has already been written about this great book. Triumph for nerds. Triumph for underdogs. Triumph for good and brave hearts.

    Good story line. A bit too many references the to the 80s which sometimes detracted from the plot.
  • Ready player one is great!

    I was sick and I had nothing to do so I finished this book in a day. It ended up becoming my favorite book. It’s fantastic and I recommend this book to everyone. I love this book and you will too. It also teaches you a bunch about American pop culture.
