Early life

Ernest Cline had a thing for 1980s pop culture way James Joyce had a thing for Dublin on June 16 1904. But you can't re-create cultural landscape in fictional prose way you can actual city, so Cline has come up with a clever workaround: he's created an imaginary online universe program by equally obsessive '80s fan, and then gives his characters compelling reason to explore it. It's 2044, and teenager Wade Watts is one of millions scouring virtual reality of Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation for clues left by late creator James Halliday that will lead to easter egg representing his multibillion-dollar fortune. Wade has an intuitive flash that helps him discover First puzzle, which combines the classic Dungeons & Dragons module with one of the more unusual '80s arcade Games, near his high school, but he also crosses paths with Art3mis, semi-famous egg hunter he's had a crush on for years. Romance will have to wait, though: Wade faces a threat from a technology corporation that's pouring its resources into making sure Halliday's fortune, and control of OASIS, will wind up in its hands. An Ensuing adventure will take him to the slew of imaginary worlds, drop him into starring roles in cult movies, and even provoke daring acts of real-world industrial sabotage. Fortunately for readers, who might not be pulled along by clever '80s pop-culture reference alone, Wade's online successes are matched by gradual maturation offline. There's lot of '80s cram in here, and chances are that if you were born between, let's say, 1965 and 1975, you'll be giving the author virtual high-fives for including one or more of your more obscure favorites.-Ron Hogan, founder of beatrice.
