A world at stake. A quest for the ultimate prize. Are you ready?
In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time Wade Watts
really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the OASIS, a vast
virtual world where most of humanity spends their days.
When the eccentric creator of the OASIS dies, he leaves behind a
series of fiendish puzzles, based on his obsession with the pop
culture of decades past. Whoever is first to solve them will inherit
his vast fortune—and control of the OASIS itself.
Then Wade cracks the first clue. Suddenly he’s beset by rivals
who’ll kill to take this prize. The race is on—and the only way to
survive is to win.
