I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book and its been on my reading list for so long. The movie adaptation of this book is now out if I’m not mistaken and it was my plan to read the book before watching the movie. I’d like to thank Penguin Random House South Africa for sending me a copy.
Title: Ready Player One || Author: Ernest Cline || Published: 16 August 2011 || Pages: 374 || Genres: LitRPG, Science Fiction, Utopian and dystopian fiction || Publisher: Penguin Random House || Publicist: Lauren Mc Diarmid
Ready player one takes place in the year 2045 whereby reality is now different. Most of the humanity now spends most of their time in a virtual world known as the OASIS. We follow the main protagonist Wade Watts who feels more alive in the virtual world than the real one.
The creator of the OASIS is dead and he decides to create a game for one person to take over his entire empire when they win the game. Whoever wins the game gets to inherit the vast fortune and control of the OASIS. After a few years, Wade finally cracks the first clue and now everyone becomes interested in the game again. This brings rivals who’ll do absolutely anything to get the price, even kill. This is a race and the only way to survive is to win.
“Anyone smart enough to accomplish what they have should know better than to risk everything by talking to the vultures in the media.”
“The OASIS lets you be whoever you want to be. That’s why everyone is addicted to it.”
