Just finished a GREAT new Book, READY PLAYER ONE

Ready Player One is a very very good, sci fi book about a future where our world is decaying and the quality of life is getting worse. The technology has given us the opportunity to live in a virtual world called the OASIS. When the creator of this system dies, he sets up the single greates videogame/scavenger hunt in this virtual world. The prize is his vast fortune 250 billion dollars. Given to one person who can complete the scavenger hunt first, it has taken many years to complete. As if the contest itself wasn't extremely hard, but the worlds largest corporation has also recruited thousands of players who are trying to win it also so that they can take the free technology of OASIS away from the people and begin to charge them a large amount to use it. A war has begun between the corporation and the regular people.

The book is written by Earnest Cline, who wrote the movie Fanboys a couple years ago, and this one of the most entertaining/fun new books I have read in a long time. No where near as good as the HP series but nothing is.

I love this book and have recommended it to every single person I see.
