Review

"The science-fiction writer John Scalzi has aptly referred to Ready Player One as a 'nerdgasm' [and] there can be no better one-word description of this ardent fantasy artifact about fantasy culture. . . . But Mr. Cline is able to incorporate his favorite toys and games into a perfectly accessible narrative."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"A fun, funny and fabulously entertaining first novel . . . This novel's large dose of 1980s trivia is a delight . . . [but] even readers who need Google to identify Commodore 64 or Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde, will enjoy this memorabilian feast."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Incredibly entertaining . . . Drawing on everything from Back to the Future to Roald Dahl to Neal Stephenson's groundbreaking Snow Crash, Cline has made Ready Player One a geek fantasia, '80s culture memoir and commentary on the future of online behavior all at once."--Austin American-Statesman

"Ready Player One is the ultimate lottery ticket."--New York Daily News

"This non-gamer loved every page of Ready Player One."--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series

"A treasure for anyone already nostalgic for the late twentieth century. . . But it's also a great read for anyone who likes a good book."--Wired

"Gorgeously geeky, superbly entertaining, this really is a spectacularly successful debut."--Daily Mail (UK)

"A gunshot of fun with a wicked sense of timing and a cast of characters that you're pumping your fist in the air with whenever they succeed. I haven't been this much on the edge of my seat for an ending in years."--Chicago Reader

A 'frakking' good read [featuring] incredible creative detail . . . I grinned at the sheer audacity of Cline's imagination."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Fascinating and imaginative . . . It's non-stop action when gamers must navigate clever puzzles and outwit determined enemies in a virtual world in order to save a real one. Readers are in for a wild ride."--Terry Brooks, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Shannara series

"I was blown away by this book. . . . A book of ideas, a potboiler, a game-within-a-novel, a serious science-fiction epic, a comic pop culture mash-up-call this novel what you will, but Ready Player One will defy every label you try to put on it. Here, finally, is this generation's Neuromancer."--Will Lavender, New York Times bestselling author of Dominance

"I really, really loved Ready Player One. . . . Cline expertly mines a copious vein of 1980s pop culture, catapulting the reader on a light-speed adventure in an advanced but backward-looking future."--Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse

"A nerdgasm . . . imagine Dungeons and Dragons and an 80s video arcade made hot, sweet love, and their child was raised in Azeroth."--John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author of Old Man's War

"Completely fricking awesome . . . This book pleased every geeky bone in my geeky body. I felt like it was written just for me."--Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wise Man's Fear

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a brilliant book!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 August 2018
Can I just say that this book is absolutely brilliant!
So very clever, fascinating, funny, enthralling - I didn't want it to end!
I read the book after watching the film - this is the way to go- the book fills in so many details and you do not mind that the story has so many differences because you know that the book came first and the film obviously had a great deal of limitations the book did not.
Read this book it is excellent!
I loved it!
