"With a movie version in the works, Cline's imaginative, rollicking, coming-of-age geek saga has a smash-hit vibe." (starred review)
"With its Pac-Man-style cover graphics and vintage Atari mind-set READY PLAYER ONE certainly looks like a genre item. But Mr. Cline is able to incorporate his favorite toys and games into a perfectly accessible narrative....[T]he breadth and cleverness of Mr. Cline's imagination gets this daydream pretty far."
"READY PLAYER ONE borrows liberally from the same Joseph Campbell plot requirements as all the beloved franchises it references, but in such a loving, deferential way that it becomes endearing. There's a high learning curve to all of the little details Wade throws out about the world....But for readers in line with Cline's obsessions, this is a guaranteed pleasure."
From the Publisher
Annotation For his debut novel READY PLAYER ONE, Ernest Cline comes up with a delightful premise--one that allows for both futuristic speculation and 1980s nostalgic indulgence. It's a bleak 2044, and humans across the globe escape their horrible lives in a virtual world known as OASIS. Invented by a guy named James Halliday, OASIS is addictive for its utopic settings, but also for its promise of riches and power, for Halliday hid some hard-to-crack and virtually impossible-to-find puzzles within his alternative reality. The puzzles all rely on knowledge of antiquated pop-culture trivia, but if you can beat them, the winnings are well worth the effort. When Wade Watts somehow manages to locate one of these puzzles, he is thrown into a wild competition--one with stakes so high that some in the virtual world will commit real-world crimes to come out on top.
