Ready Player One


A world at stake.
A quest for the ultimate prize.
Are you ready?

It's the year 2044, and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty, and disease are widespread.

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation.

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late twentieth century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle.

Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.

"Fascinating and imaginative...It's non-stop action when gamers must navigate clever puzzles and outwit determined enemies in a virtual world in order to save a real one. Readers are in for a wild ride." Terry Brooks, #1 New York Times bestselling author "This non-gamer loved every page of Ready Player One." Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Ready Player One expertly mines a copious vein of 1980s pop culture, catapulting the reader on a light-speed adventure in an advanced but backward-looking future. If this book were a living room, it would be wood-paneled. If it were shoes, it would be high-tops. And if it were a song, well, it would have to be Eye of the Tiger. I really, really loved it." Daniel H. Wilson, author of How to Survive a Robot Uprising and Robopocalypse "The pure, unfettered brainscream of a child of the 80s, like a dream my 13-year-old self would have had after bingeing on Pop Rocks and Coke...I couldn't put it down." Charles Ardai, Edgar Award-winning author and producer of Haven "Pure geek heaven. Ernest Cline's hero competes in a virtual world with life-and-death stakes -- which is only fitting, because he's fighting to make his dreams into reality. Cline blends a dystopic future with meticulously detailed nostalgia to create a story that will resonate in the heart of every true nerd." Chris Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath

Die Welt ist am Ende. Aber richtig arm bist du erst, wenn du nicht einmal deinem Avatar etwas zum Anziehen kaufen kannst! Düstere nicht allzuferne Zukunft mit 70er Touch.

Knaller Buch für Geeks
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Düsseldorf am 14.11.2017

Ready Player One ist ein sehr unterhaltsames und spannendes Buch, welches ich vor allem Geeks ans Herz legen kann. Am besten im englischen Original lesen.
