    Beschreibung von Audible

    Earth’s future is bleak in the gripping sci-fi fantasy audiobook Ready Player One, written by the brilliant Ernest Cline and narrated by American actor Wil Wheaton. Set in the near future, most of the human race have locked themselves into a virtual reality to escape the planet that the past generations had destroyed. Within this virtual existence lies the answer to infinite riches and Wade Watts spends every second on the treasure hunt. It is a frenzied race with countless players, all infected with desperation. The danger is intense and will affect them all. 

    Inhaltsangabe

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Now a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.

    A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready?

    It's the year 2044 and the real world has become an ugly place. We're out of oil. We've wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty and disease are widespread. 

    Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of 10,000 planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS - and his massive fortune - will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation. 

    For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late 20th century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle.

    Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions - and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.

    If you loved Ready Player One and can't wait for more, check out Armada, Ernest Cline's latest geek masterpiece!

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut." (Independent)

    "Part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance, and all heart." (CNN

    "Ernest Cline’s novel deserves to be a modern classic." (SciFiNow)

    Time Travel for 70-borns

    Born in the beginning of the seventies, proud owner of a Commodore VIC20 in the early 80s, role player and Lucas&Spielberg fan, I really really enjoyed every single line of the book. Although sone passages are verbally Copy&Pasze, e. g. from Zork. ;-)

    Nette Zeitreise in meine Kindheit

    Da ich zur gleichen Zeit geboren wurde, wie der Initiator der Suche, würde ich an vieles erinnert, mit dem ich Zeit in Kindheit verbracht habe.
    Eine tiefgründige Geschichte darf man aber natürlich nicht erwarten.
    Netter Zeitvertreib.

    Wirklich unterhaltend und für mich besser als der

    ... ich habe am Anfang etwas gebraucht, um rein zu kommen. Aber dann fand ich das Buch super. Der Sprecher hat mir auch sehr gut gefallen. Der Film war auch gut, aber im Vergleich würde ich das Buch immer vorziehen.

    Beautifully read

    While I thoroughly enjoyed the reading, the story itself made me skip forward a lot. endless lists of name drops of things from the 80ies, nigh endless exposition and explaining a lot of things after the fact made me dislike the story a bit

    Not what i expected

    Having loooved the movie i qickly found out it's a book adaptation and was thrilled! I never came around reading it so the audiobook was my solution.

    Will Wheaton did not disappoint, I actually enjoyed listening to him and cannot understand the negativity towards him.
    About the book though... the movie was action filled, fast paced and fun and while I totally get that the book version would have been nothing like that I found it rather disappointing to find out that everything I loved about the film was not part of the original story... it's still a good story and I somewhat enjoyed it, but it was not what I expected.
