What's the best book you read in January?
The creator of the OASIS was an eccentric video-gamer who made billions and didn't have any real friends to share it with after he died. So he created a new game. He hid a secret treasure somewhere in the OASIS with a number of obscure clues designed to lead players on their quest to find the treasure. The first player to find the treasure after his death won the ultimate prize, inheritance of 275 billion dollars and ownership of the OASIS.
Ready Player One is an account of a seventeen year old boy's quest to find this treasure. It's a fun story to read, with lots of early video game references and a built in nostalgia for the 1980's, since that's the time when the game's creator was the happiest. I definitely enjoyed reading this book, and would recommend it to anyone wanting a light-hearted futuristic look at the past with a bit of treasure seeking adventure mixed in to keep things interesting.
