Ready Player One; Ernest Cline

A unique disutopian story set in a world that has fallen apart except that everyone is plugged into the Oasis – a world wide virtual reality game that has taken over the world.  The billionaire inventor of the Oasis has died and willed his fortune to whomever can solve a complicated video game quest in the Oasis. Geeky fun full of 1980’s trivia and throwbacks.  Stephen Spielberg is getting ready to make the movie – should be interesting.
