Alli’s #CBR4 Review #27: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I finished reading “Ready Player One” about a week ago. I loved it so much that I couldn’t wait to keep reading it. It is the first book in a long time that I will read again in the future. I haven’t really been able to put my thoughts together eloquently enough to write a review that I feel gives justice to the way I felt about this book but I have put it off long enough so I am going to spit it all out on here and mark it off my to do list.
“Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline tells us the tale of a future world in which many people inhabit an alternate reality called the “OASIS”. At the beginning of the book we are told that the creator of OASIS, James Halliday, has passed away and had no heir to leave his vast fortune to. He has placed an Easter egg inside of the OASIS and the first person to find it will be his heir and therefore will inherit his money and control of the OASIS. There are 3 keys that a person must find, as well as 3 gates that they must pass challenges in order to proceed with the challenge.
