"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. 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"--Page 2 of cover.… (mer)

I can't decide if I should call this a "pop culture orgy" or a "pop culture carnival" so I'm going to go with "pop culture orgy-carnival." I mean honestly, not only is this a 300 page long love song to the 80's, it also name checks pretty much everything you can find at Comic Con. Cline mentions Wil Wheaton. There's an area of the virtual reality world called The Whedonverse, for pete's sake.

I liked the fast pace and frantic energy which really captures the urgency of gameplay, and I definitely felt the love for all things popular culture. Cline is obviously super duper into old video games. At times I felt like I was reading a Wikipedia article by a really, really obsessed Atari fan. The plot was part treasure hunt, part cyberpunk, and part romance. There were also some nice examinations of how we live online, the ways that people represent themselves in a virtual world, and the corporatization of the Internet. And some big explosions.

In all, I really liked this one. It made me want to play Pac Man and watch Family Ties. ( )

That was so Good.....ish, it was goodish ;) . Great opening and early world building. Disjointed middle and loss of connection with the main character, smooth and enjoyable albeit mostly predictable final third.

The 80's nostalgia can be both very fun and very annoying at times. The writing isn't as vivid as i like and felt a bit listy at times. What i mean is that while trying to describe something instead of feeling organic it can sometimes feel like a basic list of every item in an apartment or that a character is wearing etc.

Also there are too many times when ideas are introduced as they're being used. Its always preferable to set up as many concepts early on then use those concepts later. Many times in this though the story would say 'oh, and we have these things also, which i'm now going to use right now' and i'm like 'where did that come from, nobody told me we had those?' .

I still liked it but the setup was certainly higher quality than the payoff.

Context Edit: Having looked at some of the other reviews i've noticed a lot of the negative scores are based on expectations, as no doubt some of the high scores are too. Personally i'd never heard anything about this book except that there was an upcoming film based on it, so had no expectations going in. Also while i was born in 1980 i still got most of the references.

I'm giving this book the best compliment you can give a book: could not put it down. ( )

James Halliday, creator of the famous VR world: The OASIS, has died. But before he did so, he created a scavenger hunt with a prize of all of his money to go to the person who reaches to the end of the hunt. In this book, Wade Watts (also known as Parzival) tells the story of how he won this hunt. And it wasn't easy for him. ( )

Ready Player One borrows liberally from the same Joseph Campbell plot requirements as all the beloved franchises it references, but in such a loving, deferential way that it becomes endearing. There’s a high learning curve to all of the little details Wade throws out about the world, and for anyone who doesn’t understand or love the same sect of pop culture Halliday enjoyed, Ready Player One is a tough read. But for readers in line with Cline’s obsessions, this is a guaranteed pleasure.
 
"Cline is an ingenious conjurer talented at translating high concept into compelling storytelling."

The breadth and cleverness of Mr. Cline’s imagination gets this daydream pretty far. But there comes a point when it’s clear that Wade lacks at least one dimension, and that gaming has overwhelmed everything else about this book.

"Video-game players embrace the quest of a lifetime in a virtual world; screenwriter Cline’s first novel is old wine in new bottles. "

Like most gunters, I voted to reelect Cory Doctorow and Wil Wheaton (again). There were no term limits, and those two geezers had been doing a kick-ass job of protecting user rights for over a decade.
It was the dawn of a new era, one where most of the human race now spent all of their free time inside a videogame.
