Descripción de la editorial

***NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY STEVEN SPIELBERG***

A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready?

It's the year 2044, and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty, and disease are widespread.

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation.

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late twentieth century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle.

Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.

Fantástico y entrañable

Hacia mucho tiempo que no me emocionaba tanto al leer un libro.
No es un obra maestra, pero sin duda a todos aquellos que hace un par de décadas disfrutaban de los antiguos videojuegos, juegos de rol, y películas de serie B sólo aptas para frikis, les arrancara mas de una sonrisa y les hará recordar esa época de adolescencia.
Muy fácil de leer y te atrapa en pocas paginas, siempre y cuando tengas algo de es cultura nerd de entonces.
Si no es así. Si no has jugado a rol con los amigos, al pac-man y no sabes quien es Ultraman o que es 1d12, entonces no es tu libro.

Muy divertido

Hacía tiempo que no terminaba un libro tan rápido. La historia en entretenida y fácil de leer, esta lleno de alusiones a los videojuegos y pelis con las que crecí y te mantiene enganchado.
