Book Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (12 Jun 2012)
I have now read this book twice and both times have been a great reading experience.
The book is set in the future where everyday life is dismal. The only way people can escape the depression is to go into a virtual reality called the OASIS.
The OASIS is a free virtual reality game which has become a way of life for majority of the world. When the creator passes away, he leaves his legacy to one lucky individual who can unlock 3 Easter Eggs or hidden secrets.
Wade the main Protagonist and full time Gunther seeks the worlds biggest prize along of thousands others, he must overcome the challenges and fight fierce opponents along the way. The book focuses on 80’s pop culture, as well as modern scifi.
It’s a fun, creative, well researched adventure read, highly recommended.
Author Biography - Ernest Cline
ERNEST CLINE has worked as a short-order cook, fish gutter, plasma donor, elitist video store clerk, and tech support drone. His primary occupation, however, has always been geeking out, and he eventually threw aside those other promising career paths to express his love of pop culture fulltime as a spoken word artist and screenwriter. His 2009 film Fanboys, much to his surprise, became a cult phenomenon. These days Ernie lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, their daughter, and a large collection of classic video games. READY PLAYER ONE is his first novel.
