    A rambunctious, hysterical and loving tribute to the bygone decades, “Ready Player One” takes place in a dystopian world where almost everybody submerges their real selves in an ongoing computer game called OASIS. This book rarely swerves from its game player mentality but it is raised from being a mere exercise in geekdom by its gamers Parzival, Aech, Daisho and Art3mis. They are more than emotionally stunted nerds sitting in front of computer screens in their underwear. Each one yearns to make his or her stamp on the world or at least get all the goodies they can out of it. “Ready Player One” resists any attempt the reader might have to feel sorry for its shut-ins. They know the world is a mess but they don’t care. They both seek to better it and accept it for what it is. Although Wade comes off at first as being the ultimate nerd, it’s clear he’s savvy, smart, probing and educated. He actually knows the world used to be better than the metal pit it has become and is gradually led on the realization that he can make a difference, that he can make it better. He just has to play the game. This novel is meant to be enjoyed both superficially and on a deeper level. Those of us who are more than 20 years old will chuckle in delight at all the references from the 70s, 80s and 90s that pepper its pages. So grab your joystick, players, and prepare to play the game. This one is for ALL the marbles.
