The tale of how a young man journeys through a colossal video game to find an easter egg that will procure him an eccentric billionaire’s legacy and fortune, Ready Player One transports the reader to a both a different time and a different world. Cline’s novel is creative and nostalgic with excellent pacing; it overflows with riddles and popular culture references. Though the novel follows a relatively predictable trajectory, its virtual reality and dystopia provide an enthralling backdrop for a thoroughly entertaining story from beginning to end.
