Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is a suspenseful Sci-fi novel. In the future people will do anything to escape to a virtual game world,OASIS, where everyone is who they aren't. One young teenager, Wade Watts, is an ordinary lower class boy. All he is trying to do is get through life. When he discovers the first gate in a contest in OASIS everyone suddenly knows who he is, some even want him dead. A big corporation by the name of IOI wants to get the prize that comes after the three gates and challenges are completed, of course they cheat and lie to do so. But in the end good prevails, and Wade even gets people to begin realizing the problems in the world, as well as getting them to begin to fix them.
Ready Player One was such a great book. It's plot was amazing and action packed. From death threats to intense gaming scenes, this book had almost anything you could think of, even love and friendship. The way the author makes you believe these characters are real is how he gives them real world conflicts and choices. Also this book throws the 80s era in there, such as things that were popular then, it makes you more aware of how our culture has changed and stayed the same. This book overall is too amazing to not read.
Contains sexual situations: masturbation.
