Ready Player OneReady Player One by Ernest Cline

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG this is the best book that I have read in a long time!!! Thank you to 3 Book Tuber videos who recommended this book. If you like video games and things related to the 80's like music, movies and video games.

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.

I read this book 3 years ago and loved it. I remember thinking how awesome it would be if they made it into a movie and now they are. At that time, I encouraged my hubby to listen to the audio book on his way to work and he did (read by Wil Weaton from Big Bang Theory) and he loved it.
A couple months ago when we found out there is going to be a movie, I bought the book and my hubby read it. I have not read it the second time yet.

Are you excited about the movie?

I can not wait for the movie. I had my 2 adult sons read it as well and I think we will go see the movie together as they also enjoyed the book.
