Reviews

"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
