Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I picked this title for my book club. We needed a sci fi novel and I always struggle to find something they might like in that genre. It’s just not my thing. Someone suggested Ready Play One so without much thought I added it to the list.

I loved this book! It took some thought to distinguish the real world from the virtual world but once I did, I was all in. It’s the year 2044 and a wealthy video game developer has left his fortune to the person who can solve his riddles and make their way through his virtual world. The part I loved was all the references to the 1980’s. They were a very real time in my own life and I could relate to its role in solving the puzzle of the games.

Give Ready Player One a try. I was ready not to like it from the start but the glimpse into our future woven among the nostalgia of the past, hooked me. The story moves at a lightening fast pace so hold on and go for the ride. Now I have to see the movie!
