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.

WOW Wade Owen Watts ,

if an author can describe something so well why make a film

Really good book. I am only 11 but does not matter got every one of the little Easter eggs .Once you read the book the film looks like a fluke they didn’t take any of the Easter eggs onboard or even the plot rubbish film great book if a author can describe something so well why make a film

Good idea, badly written. Not for non-gamers.

Good idea, would make a good film and the suspense makes you want to read on, but really poorly written, with the author frequently repeating himself or just adding details, not explained, into brackets. Goes far too in-depth into specific 80s films and arcade video games, which if you're not completely familiar with make little sense. Essentially: if you're not an 80's obsessed gamer, I probably wouldn't bother reading this. Sorry.

Save your money. Donate it to a Wesley Crusher charity.

Whining voice. Exps. Pose-rrrr. Kids arguing about nonsense.

I lasted 2 hours of this then refunded. Honestly awful. Main character is an obnoxious little child who is meant to be 18 years old.

Marked it 3 stars as I felt it was unfair to mark any lower not having listened to the whole book.
