Ready player one

A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready' It's the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune'and remarkable power'to whoever can unlock them. For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that Halliday's riddles are based in the pop culture he loved'that of the late twentieth century. And for years, millions have found in this quest another means of escape, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday's icons. Like many of his contemporaries, Wade is as comfortable debating the finer points of John Hughes's oeuvre, playing Pac-Man, or reciting Devo lyrics as he is scrounging power to run his OASIS rig. And then Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle. Suddenly the whole world is watching, and thousands of competitors join the hunt'among them certain powerful players who are willing to commit very real murder to beat Wade to this prize. Now the only way for Wade to survive and preserve everything he knows is to win. But to do so, he may have to leave behind his oh-so-perfect virtual existence and face up to life'and love'in the real world he's always been so desperate to escape. At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut'part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

  • "Wer online stirbt, ist wirklich tot! Im Jahr 2044 hat die reale Welt für Wade Watts nicht mehr viel zu bieten. Daher flieht er - wie die meisten Menschen - in das virtuelle Utopia von OASIS. Hier kann man leben, spielen und sich verlieben, ohne von der bedrückenden Realität abgelenkt zu werden. Da entdeckt Wade in einem Online-Game den ersten Hinweis auf einen unsagbar wertvollen Schatz, den der verstorbene Schöpfer von OASIS in seiner Cyber-Welt versteckt hat. Plötzlich ist Wade eine Berühmtheit, aber er gerät auch in das Visier eines Killerkommandos - in OASIS und in der Realität. Wade weiss, dass er diese mörderische Hetzjagd nur überleben kann, wenn er das Spiel bis zu seinem ungewissen Ende spielt! Ernest Cline ist der Drehbuchautor des erfolgreichen Independent-Films FANBOYS. READY PLAYER ONE ist sein Debütroman. Wie seine Romanfigur James Halliday ist auch Ernest Cline ein grosser Fan der 1980er Jahre und ihrer einzigartigen Popkultur. Er lebt mit seiner Familie im texanischen Austin und ist stolzer Eigentümer eines De Lorean, des berühmten Autos aus dem Film ZURÜCK IN DIE ZUKUNFT."
  • ""Ready Player One takes place in the not-so-distant future--the world has turned into a very bleak place, but luckily there is OASIS, a virtual reality world that is a vast online utopia. People can plug into OASIS to play, go to school, earn money, and even meet other people (or at least they can meet their avatars), and for protagonist Wade Watts it certainly beats passing the time in his grim, poverty-stricken real life. Along with millions of other world-wide citizens, Wade dreams of finding three keys left behind by James Halliday, the now-deceased creator of OASIS and the richest man to have ever lived. The keys are rumored to be hidden inside OASIS, and whoever finds them will inherit Halliday's fortune. But Halliday has not made it easy. And there are real dangers in this virtual world. Stuffed to the gills with action, puzzles, nerdy romance, and 80s nostalgia, this high energy cyber-quest will make geeks everywhere feel like they were separated at birth from author Ernest Cline."--Chris Schluep, Amazon Best Book of the Month"@en

The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the Oasis.Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines - puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.

The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win - and confront the real world he's always been so disparate to escape" -- Cover verso."
