Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Novel Rating 5/5 ⭐
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.
In so much seriousness, I wish that I could rate this book way higher than just five stars! Five stars seems like such a cheap rating toward my emotions for this book! During 2017 I have read a plethora of books, but if I’m being completely honest with myself then I would have to say that Ready Player One, is my number one read of this year by far than any other!
As an introvert, the protagonist, Wade, and overall way of the book became highly appealing at first glance of the synopsis. If there was such thing as the OASIS in this century, then you better believe that I would be the first person to sign up for it. The storyline grabbed me from the instant I laid eyes on the first page of the novel.
Even though I was born in the 90s, my background consisted mostly of the 80s due to my mother growing up in the 70s to 80s, so of course, my knowledge and familiarity of the 80s were almost like second nature. Sometimes, I even forget that I was born in the 90s.
I loved each and every character that we come to meet, well besides the obvious people that you shouldn’t, AKA the villains. I’d have to say my favorite character would be AECH, I definitely have to say that the character really shocked me (of course in a good way!) And of course, I really enjoyed Wade. His persona, in my opinion, was easily likable and easily relatable.
I’m very much anticipating the movie, actually, the trailer is what led me to read the book. The previews alone got me amped up with anticipation so much so, that I knew getting my hands on the book was a MUST. My review on this will be updated once the movie releases which isn’t until, March 30th, 2018! So stay tuned.
