Ready Player One is a fast, rollicking sci-fi adventure about a kid named Wade Watts living in a life of video games and the secret history of The Oasis. In 2044, in a world where everyone wears the same virtual reality-enhanced gear, Timothy Beckett emerges as the creator of an online virtual utopia called The Oasis. But like any good creator, he wants to control everything around him: his creation and himself. Beckett creates AIs (artificial intelligence) with specific goals and abilities to ensure absolute control over his destiny and humanity.
Ernest Cline’s bestselling novel about a young teenager recruited by the best players in the world to find an ancient artificial intelligence program has become a cult classic.

Ready Player One is back in this second book of the bestselling Ready Player One series–an exhilarating adventure that takes readers deeper into the OASIS and the story of Wade Watts, who has grown up in virtual reality. But now he’s to be forced out onto the real world, to face reality he has been trying to avoid his entire life. This time around, he’s not alone: Parzival and Art3mis have joined him on his quest for riches.
