Staff Reviews


Although I missed out on the majority of the 1980's, reading Ready Player One was intensely enjoyable despite being stuffed full of 80's references, from the common to the obscure. Wade is a teen who lives in the incredibly grim future–year 2044, where most of the world's resources have been used up and there's little hope for improvement. The only thing keeping him and the rest of the impoverished world sane is Oasis, a sophisticated virtual reality that far surpasses our current reality. When the founder of Oasis died he left keys buried around the many planets he created. The person who solves the clues (all involving his obsession with the 1980's) will inherit his massive fortune. No one has made any progress on the challenging puzzle–until Wade. Now he's fighting for a fortune and his life. I foresee this being a huge crossover hit with both adults who miss the sweet sounds of synthesizer-laden music and teens who've never had the privilege of playing a coin-operated arcade game. Don't miss this one!

Description


La novela cibernética que ha inspirado la gran producción de Warner Bros, a medio camino entre Avatar y Matrix.

Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read.

El libro clásico de culto, que pronto será llevado al cine por el director Steven Spielberg.

Estamos en el año 2044 y, como el resto de la humanidad, Wade Watts prefiere mil veces el videojuego de OASIS al cada vez más sombrío mundo real.
Se asegura que esconde las diabólicas piezas de un rompecabezas cuya resolución conduce a una fortuna incalculable. Las claves del enigma están basadas en la cultura de finales del siglo XX y, durante años, millones de humanos han intentado dar con ellas, sin éxito.

De repente, Wade logra resolver el primer rompecabezas del premio, y, a partir de ese momento, debe competir contra miles de jugadores para conseguir el trofeo.
La única forma de sobrevivir es ganar; pero para hacerlo tendrá que abandonar su existencia virtual y enfrentarse a la vida y al amor en el mundo real, del que siempre ha intentado escapar.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The bestselling cult classic—soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.

In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.

But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

About the Author


Ernest Cline (Ohio, Estados Unidos, 1972) es poeta, escritor y guionista. En 2010, vendió los derechos de su primera novela, Ready Player One, a la Warner Bros, que proyecta hacer una gran producción, con el propio Cline como guionista. Los derechos de la novela se han vendido en medio mundo, después de convencer a los medios y lectores en lengua inglesa, y cautivar a autores de la talla de Charlaine Harris y Patrick Rothfuss, a quien, según ha confesado, le pareció haberla escrito él mismo.

Actualmente, Cline vive en Austin, Texas, con su esposa, su hija y una gran colección de videojuegos clásicos.
