Description

_____________________AN UNEXPECTED QUEST. TWO WORLDS AT STAKE. ARE YOU READY?Days after winning OASIS founder James Halliday’s contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything.

Hidden within Halliday’s vaults, waiting for his heir to find it, lies a technological advancement that will once again change the world and make the OASIS a thousand times more wondrous – and addictive – than even Wade dreamed possible.

With it comes a new riddle, and a new quest: a last Easter egg from Halliday, hinting at a mysterious prize. And an unexpected, impossibly powerful, and dangerous new rival awaits, one who’ll kill millions to get what he wants.

Wade’s life and the future of the OASIS are again at stake, but this time the fate of humanity also hangs in the balance.

Lovingly nostalgic and wildly original as only Ernest Cline could conceive it, Ready Player Two takes us on another imaginative, fun, action-packed adventure through his beloved virtual universe, and jolts us thrillingly into the future once again. _____________________’Delving back into the universe of OASIS is a nostalgic delight… fans will love returning to Cline’s virtual world.’Press Association’Living up to the smash hit Ready Player One – turned into a film by Steven Spielberg – was never going to be easy, but Ernest Cline’s wry and savage sequel shows how it should be done…

A wild ride. Make this into a movie now.’ The Times ‘Ernest Cline takes Ready Player One, gives it a software update, adds some more nostalgia and delivers sheer joy in Ready Player Two.’ Phil Williams, Times Radio ‘A stunning, futuristic thrill-ride, full of nostalgia and wonderful set-pieces.
