Ready Player One

An endearing rags to riches story set in a dystopian future

Ready Player One is a book (and soon-to-be movie) describing the story of protagonist Wade Watts on his search for an Easter egg in a virtual reality game, the discovery of which will lead him to inherit a fortune in a dystopian world wrecked by an energy crisis.

It's basically the bible of VR for today's generation while mixing in tons of extremely entertaining 80s nostalgia. Plus Spielberg is directing the movie and it's in production now.

Read this cover to cover over the weekend. So much fun. Can't wait to see what Spielberg does with it for the movie.

Hardcover, 374 pages | If you grew up in the 1980s and resided anywhere on the nerd-geek spectrum, all it takes is the right Rush or Genesis song to bring you back to the video arcade. This was before video games became visually stunning and able to be controlled just by waving your hand in the air.

If you've read Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, you know that it's absolutely steeped in pop culture references. The lead character is a pop culture junkie and there's barely a page that doesn't contain some sort of explicit reference to a geek property.

Ernest Cline's "Ready Player One" is a book filled with references to video games, virtual reality, '80s pop-culture trivia, geek heroes like E. Gary Gygax, and funny-sounding cult items like Frobozz and Raaka-Tu. Yet it works for people who like books without pictures too.

Informative yet entertaining look at modern technologies and the dangers that come with them. Always a fun gift as it's also alternate history with lots of political assassinations.
