If you like video games or were born before the 80's you'll definitely enjoy some of the finer points in this book. Ready Player One offers the life of Wade Watts, a geeky teenager, that stumbles upon the first part of winning the worlds greatest lottery. The 80's nostalgia can be lost on younger readers but the excitement of the characters is natural and infectious. With a gripping story and very human characters, even if you aren't a video game buff or nostalgic for the 80's, I would still suggest giving this one a read. Get it out from the library and if you like the first 100 pages by all means, spend away.
