Staff Reviews


This is nerd-lit at its finest. Dystopia has never seemed so fun. In the near future, humanity lives in a digital universe - a giant MMORPG, to be exact. A team of young avatars are pitted against a giant corporation for control of the digital universe. Packed with 1980's music, games, and pop culture, this is a great read. TL;DR: Just buy the book.

— Beckett H.

“The world in 2044, is a mess. Energy sources are depleted, cities are jam-packed and the lives of average people are full of misery. In order to escape the hardships of everyday life, billions escape into the electronic virtual world OASIS. When the multi-billionaire creator of OASIS dies, he leaves his fortune in trust for the first avatar to complete three virtual quests. Wade Watts, a lonely teenage misfit, decides to compete and win the prize. Filled with references to 1970s and '80s pop culture, Ready Player One is a love story, a quest novel and a parable for the electronic age.”
