Summary
The year is 2044 and reality is grim. Most people choose to escape into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual reality world created by billionaire James Halliday. Upon Halliday's death it is revealed that control of his company and fortune will be left to the person who can find the clues he has hidden in his virtual kingdom. For years millions fail to unlock the key to the big payout, but when a nobody teen from Oklahoma stumbles upon the first clue the race is back on and the world is watching.
Critique
Gamers and 80's pop culture enthusiasts will not want to miss this exciting and suspenseful debut novel. It's impossible not to cheer for Wade and his band of misfit virtual pals as they go head to head against an evil corporation in order to save the one place they feel at home. As an added bonus, the audiobook is narrated by pop culture legend, Wil Wheaton.
