Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As narrator of this offbeat, futuristic adventure, Wil Wheaton must evoke a teen’s naïveté and cynicism about real life and incorporate this veteran gaming geek’s expertise of ’80s culture…Wheaton is up to the task, presenting an engaging treasure hunt while also dramatizing the hero’s enthusiasm at playing classic games like Pac-Man. Also a twist on The Pilgrim’s Progress, this novel has something for everyone.” AudioFile
“This non-gamer loved every page of Ready Player One.” Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Enchanting…Willy Wonka meets The Matrix.” USA Today
“The grown-up’s Harry Potter…The mystery and fantasy in this novel weaves itself in the most delightful way, and the details that make up Mr. Cline’s world are simply astounding. Ready Player One has it all.” Huffington Post
“An exuberantly realized, exciting, and sweet-natured cyber-quest. Cline’s imaginative and rollicking coming-of-age geek saga has a smash-hit vibe.” Booklist (starred review)
