    Avis de l'équipe

    Earth’s future is bleak in the gripping sci-fi fantasy audiobook Ready Player One, written by the brilliant Ernest Cline and narrated by American actor Wil Wheaton. Set in the near future, most of the human race have locked themselves into a virtual reality to escape the planet that the past generations had destroyed. Within this virtual existence lies the answer to infinite riches and Wade Watts spends every second on the treasure hunt. It is a frenzied race with countless players, all infected with desperation. The danger is intense and will affect them all. 

    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Now a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.

    A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready?

    It's the year 2044 and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty and disease are widespread. 

    Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of 10,000 planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation. 

    For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late 20th century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle.

    Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.

    Commentaires

    "Wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut." (Independent)

    "Part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance, and all heart." (CNN

    "Ernest Cline’s novel deserves to be a modern classic." (SciFiNow)

    Great book

    Great story, very well written. Some ennumerations are tedious on the first chapters. Loved it.

    Where's the sequel?!

    This was an incredible book, with both the writing and performance being top-class. I have never read a book much like this, yet I was deeply thrown into the story and really felt for the characters and the world around them.

    I would recommend this book to those of you have ever had any interest in computing, retro gaming and retro film. It really is a 80s pop-culture book with an incredible setting and back story.

    To be honest, I was upset when the book ended. The only question that came to my mind was: Where is the sequel?!

    Hopefully one might be made soon... I know Ernest Cline hasn't ruled it out yet!

    amazing book!!! sooo much better than the film

    i think ive read around 200-300 books (and probably 50-100 audiobooks) and i would honestly say this is by far the best audiobook ive read to date, and as a standalone book its the best ive read. (please note i may be a little biased due to me studying computer science and being a gamer\geek)

    will's performance was amazing, i was so surprised at how well he brought the book to life. when it comes to an audiobook, the narrators job is to help bring the emotions, suspense, anxiety, and elation that the author is trying to portray, and he did that to perfection.

    this is the first 5* review ive ever given, and its worth every one of them. i just wish the book had of been just 1 extra chapter, although in my heart i knew it was the right time to end the book... i just wanted more!!!

    i would absolutely recommend this book to anyone, i dont know what more to say as i dont want to mention anything about the story, so just read this book :)

    Best audio book yet!

    Can't recommend this enough, flew through it in 3-4 days. Only disappointing thing is that the movie now pales in comparison! 🙈

    Great narrative arc

    I loved how this dystopian universe where everyone escapes from the dreary polluted world to enter the fantastic virtual world that has been created. The thrill and tensions between the players and the ones that control the system makes it all the more gripping.

    Game adventure of note

    The story takes you on journey of self discovery, strained friendships and bravery through a epic game quest. The gamers underdogs against a corporate machine that will cheat and stack all cards in their favour for the ultimate prize.

    A good read, the well researched 80s facts brought back some memories and the flow was well maintained. If you like retro gaiming and RPGs and your up for an adventure then this book is for you.

    Fun Concepts, Odd Character Responses

    I reached a point where I got irritated with the main character (not the performance).

    go watch a movie or don't bother at all

    my expectations were low but jesus christ. no character development, weirdly sexist, the entire book is just 80s references and the story is slow and not interesting at all

    WIL WHEATON IS THE WORST NARRATOR OF ALL TIME!!!

    That was the worst narration performance I have ever heard. What a dork.
    Stop saying the word "Then" like your whole existance depends on it, it does not fit the storyline.
    "AND THEN I sat down" "THEEEEEN I opened the book" "AAAAAAND THEEEEEEEEEEEEN I put my suit on"

    The book also sucked. It is like it was written by a elementary kid who got some help from one of his parents to make it have a little bit more substance.

    This is one of the few instances where the film is way better than the book.

    Time Travel for 70-borns

    Born in the beginning of the seventies, proud owner of a Commodore VIC20 in the early 80s, role player and Lucas&Spielberg fan, I really really enjoyed every single line of the book. Although sone passages are verbally Copy&Pasze, e. g. from Zork. ;-)

    Nette Zeitreise in meine Kindheit

    Da ich zur gleichen Zeit geboren wurde, wie der Initiator der Suche, würde ich an vieles erinnert, mit dem ich Zeit in Kindheit verbracht habe.
    Eine tiefgründige Geschichte darf man aber natürlich nicht erwarten.
    Netter Zeitvertreib.

    Not what i expected

    Having loooved the movie i qickly found out it's a book adaptation and was thrilled! I never came around reading it so the audiobook was my solution.

    Will Wheaton did not disappoint, I actually enjoyed listening to him and cannot understand the negativity towards him.
    About the book though... the movie was action filled, fast paced and fun and while I totally get that the book version would have been nothing like that I found it rather disappointing to find out that everything I loved about the film was not part of the original story... it's still a good story and I somewhat enjoyed it, but it was not what I expected.
