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.

    This might be my favorite book in many years!!! All the eighties imagery rocked my world. I hope the movie does it justice

    At first , I was not so interested in reading but then as the book mentioned a lot of old school games and technology in a futuristic setting. You feel a nostalgic feeling of how it felt to grow up playing those type of games. It was a great read that you can easily get lost into and want to continue reading for hours on end.
  • Great read
