SummaryAdd a Summary
In 2044, reality is a grim place plagued by poverty, shortages and unemployment. Fortunately, people don't have to live in the real world anymore -- most entertainment, business and social interaction takes place in OASIS, a virtual world of amazing scope and detail. But now, OASIS will become the setting for an unprecedented battle royale. The creator of OASIS, upon his death, promised to give control of all his wealth, and his world, to the player who could complete a series of challenges based on his favorite movies and video games. For five years, nobody found anything...until Wade Watts, a 17-year-old, level-three nobody stumbles upon the first clue. Suddenly he's a celebrity with a shot at everything he's ever wanted -- but his opponents will stop at nothing, including murder, to see that he doesn't win.
