Goodreads Monday – Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren @Page Turner.
It’s pretty easy, just pick a book from your Goodreads tbr shelf and show it off. It’s a great way to show off books that have been on my tbr much too long!

Ready Player One

Hardcover, 374 pages
Published August 16th 2011 by Crown Publishers

Another book that has been on my to-read shelf for a looooooooong time –
since Jul 17, 2014.

Way too long.

I did try to listen to it shortly after but I couldn’t get into it and didn’t get further than the first chapter. Since then I have seen it talked about EVERYWHERE, and this made me think that MAYBE I need to give it a second chance.

So that’s why it has been sitting on my to-read shelf ever since.

THE BLURB

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. 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.
