Willy Wonka meets The Matrix ." — USA Today "An addictive read . . . part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance, and all heart." — CNN "Delightful . . . the grown-up's Harry Potter ." — HuffPost "As one adventure leads expertly to the next, time simply evaporates." — Entertainment Weekly "Gorgeously geeky, superbly entertaining, [and] spectacularly successful." —Daily Mail (UK) "A smart, funny thriller that both celebrates and critiques online culture." —San Francisco Chronicle "A geek fantasia, '80s culture memoir and commentary on the future of online behavior all at once." — Austin American-Statesman
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The planet remains a dismal place, but for most of humanity, the computer-generated world of OASIS offers a refuge from reality's harshness. Having won Halliday's Easter Egg hunt at the end of Ready Player One (2011), Wade Watts has everything he ever wanted: fame, fortune, and friends. A few days later, an avatar of his idol James Halliday appears, giving Wade a powerful new device, one that can change the world for good--or make things even worse. Wade "only" has to decide if humanity is ready for the new technology. He chooses to release it, and shortly afterwards a mysterious new riddle is announced, one that only Halliday's heir can solve. As in the previous book, there are plenty of 1980s pop culture references including a hilarious visit to the films of John Hughes and a mad race through a world devoted to Prince. Cline's fans will enjoy revisiting old friends and meeting new ones as they go on a whirlwind trip through a fantastic new virtual quest to save the world."
