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.

User reviews about this book
Read as an assignment but enjoyed it!
I was originally given the task of reading this book and writing a book report about it. I had made it through the first few pages and couldn’t put it down!! Still don’t wanna write my book report though.
A definitive Book for those who grew up in the 80s/90s
By ur fake news
I love this book so much I have read it over 10 times. I have even started a local club to talk about it and we even have a fun drinking game while we watch the movie adaptation when every time the movie gets something wrong we drink. Needless to say we get trashed quickly... don’t watch the movie!
The movie doesn’t do this book justice.
Ready Player One
This book encompasses everything anyone is into, gaming, Fantasia, futurism. It takes you on a wild ride through many aspects of what the future may have in store both good and bad. If you are into any of the aforementioned topics then I highly recommend giving Ready Player One a read. You will not regret it!!!
I had to work so it took me three days to read.
One of my favorites
I think I’ve read this book 12 times in the last year. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of reading it. It ranks as one of my top ten for sure. It brought back lots of memories of growing up in the ‘80’s.
This is, without question, one of the most poorly written books I’ve ever read. There is constant repetition, timelines don’t make sense, any drama the author manages to come up with lasts less than a page and it’s right back to the shoehorned references. My god, the references. There is such a thing as too many. There is also such a thing as an editor, but apparently nobody bothered with that step.
There’s also the gross part where the main character berates a girl trying to get away from him into maintaining their relationship. Such nice-guy fantasy nonsense.
Lastly, the fact that of the roughly 137 million references the only reference to a female seems to be Princess Leia (no surprise there). I’m fairly certain this author has serious issues with women.
Avoid this nonsense.
Could not put this book down!
This book differs from the movie but I still could not put it down even knowing the ending! Excellent read
Not a reader
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!!!
Best book I’ve ever read. So much better than the movie! I’ve now read it over 3 times. Please read it. You will LOVE IT!!!
