"In the years since I’d first started reading Arty’s Missives, it had become one of the most popular blogs on the Internet, now logging several million hits a day. And Art3mis was now something of a celebrity, at least in gunter circles. But fame hadn’t gone to her head. Her writing was still as funny and self-deprecating as ever. Her newest blog post was titled "The John Hughes Blues," and it was an in-depth treatise on her six favorite John Hughes teen movies, which she divided into two separated trilogies: The "Dorky Girl Fantasies" trilogy (Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and Some Kind of Wonderful) and the “Dorky Boy Fantasies” trilogy (The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off).”

It’s the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. 

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune—and remarkable power—to whoever can unlock them. 

After finishing this book, all I could do was sit and wonder why I hadn’t read it sooner, oh my gosh! This is one of the most astounding and entertaining books I’ve ever read - ever. Ernest Cline managed to create a world that was both delightful and terrifying. I’m just so genuinely amazed at how good this book was. 

While Ready Player One is delightfully geek-tastic, it’s also scary and disturbingly real in terms of what happened to the world as we continue to use up all the resources we can find without thinking of the consequences. Although this book just seems like a book about this amazing program called OASIS, this book tackles some serious issues such as racism, the environment, and living in poverty which was integrated so well with the story.

As for our characters, Wade (aka Parzival), Art3mis, and Aech (pronounced ‘h’), they’re all really interesting characters who really feel like individuals instead of just of “just another character” with a book that has so many faces. As they all start interacting in and outside of OASIS, you become so interested in each and everyone one of them. 

I will say the 80s references were sometimes redundant, but it didn’t really bother me so much to consider it a fault since it’s a large piece of the plot. However, some might find themselves googling things they don’t understand (I’m guilty of this). 

This book, despite the redundancy, is absolutely amazing! I’ve never been more excited about a story in a really long time, and if you want a fascinatingly terrifying book, I would definitely suggest this one!
