It’s the year 2044 and the world is digitally connected to Oasis a multiverse Utopia. The creator left behind a treasure hunt, a game of sorts and the winner gets the lifesavings of the creator. Wade Watts participates and if he wants to survive, he has to win as he has to confront the real world that he always escaped from.
Ready Player One blew me away and knocked me off my feet. It kept me hooked and unable to put the book down. A nerd’s fantasy. This book had so many references to games, movies, books and technology. And those references were weaved in so wonderfully that it didn’t hinder the reading experience.
What I liked about this book:
The main character is Wade Watt then there are two main side characters Art3mis and Aech. Each character was so well thought out. Each character had their secrets and identities. They were 3D and dynamic. We get to see their friendship grow and blossom, and maybe even some romance~
The multiverse of Oasis was so well written and descriptive. It seems like Ernest Cline put a lot of thought and energy into the development of the world. It seems well researched, it’s mind blowing.
My favorite part is the writing. I want to re-read and re-read this over and over again. The way Ernest Cline wrote flows so well, it keeps the reader attention.
