Ready Player One – a flash book review


 

Ready Player One Paperback CoverReady Player One, by Ernest Cline, is the best book I’ve read in the last five years. I love the world the he creates – a quasi-post-apocalyptic setting in which all members of reality are wired into the “Oasis” – their preferred alternate reality in which all of their life-like activities take place.

The book is filled with 1980s movies, music, and video-game references and it’s a true treasure hunt. It has all the elements of a fantastic action adventure with bad guys, humor, puzzles and a love story.

If you loved Stephenson’s Snow Crash, you have to read Ready Player One. Period.
