Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.. Back-to-the-future-ism in an elegant and very enjoyable ride of a debut novel. Love, a high stakes quest, all couched in fin-de-millenium video game and pop culture chic. Irresistible.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"A treasure for anyone already nostalgic for the late 20th century. . . But it’s also a great read for anyone who likes a good book."

"A most excellent ride…the conceit is a smart one, and we happily root for [the heroes] on their quest…fully satisfying."

The Boston Globe

Author bio: ERNEST CLINE has worked as a short-order cook, fish gutter, plasma donor, elitist video store clerk, and tech support drone. His primary occupation, however, has always been geeking out, and he eventually threw aside those other promising career paths to express his love of pop culture fulltime as a spoken word artist and screenwriter. His 2009 film Fanboys, much to his surprise, became a cult phenomenon. These days Ernie lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, their daughter, and a large collection of classic video games. READY PLAYER ONE is his first novel. More information can be found here:
