Ready Player One

Ready Player One

This month’s book is a popular contemporary science fiction book that is one part eXistenZ and one part Goonies. Ready Player One has a cult following and is coming to theaters in 2018 thanks to Stephen Spielberg and Simon Pegg. It’s supposed to be a real page-turner, which I think we could all use coming off last month’s book 🙂

“Layered with inside jokes and sly references that will appeal to a wide range of readers, Ready Player One is a smart, funny thriller that both celebrates and critiques [pop] culture… The puzzles are intriguing, the action is intense… [definitely worth your time].” – Common Sense Media

May’s Book of the Month: Ready Player One (2011)
Author: Earnest Cline
Available at your favorite book store, Amazon, and Audible (narrated by Wil Wheaton!)

“In the year 2044, 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. 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.”
