An unexpected quest. Two worlds at stake. Are you ready?

Days after Oasis founder James Halliday's contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything. Hidden within Halliday's vault, waiting for his heir to find, 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 will 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.

While I really liked Ready Player One, this book seems like it was more of a sequel for sequel's sake. it lost most of the great character development and new ideas of the first book, and just wasn't as enjoyable to read.

Note that I listened to the audiobook, rather than reading the book.

An utterly disappointing sequel.

Ready Player One was great because it fun and fresh and thrilling. Because of the story, not because of the writing. Even in spite of the writing. Because Ernest Cline is not a good writer.

RP2 takes the fresh/fun stuff from RP1, injects it with steroids, then hits copy & paste a million times. It's astounding (not really) that this book made it past his beta readers (including Stephen Spielberg) and editor.

The first 20% of the book is exposition. So is most of the remaining 80%.

Bad pacing? Check. Bad dialogue? Check. Wooden characters and an unsympathetic protagonist? Check. 13,000 adverbs in one book? Check.

Blech.

After listening to the first few pages I wanted to stop. Wade was such a dork making such obviously stupid but significant choices. However, the tension soon subsided during the long introduction of the scene (including a recap of the significant facts from the first book). In the end, the book was filled with many twists and turns and ended up merging the game world with the real world in some pretty ingenious ways - like how the real world controlled avatars sitting in rigs that controlled real-world robots.
Additionally, the book had multiple surprises that changed the perspective and opened up new ideas about saving memories and capturing the concept that ultimately our being/soul is just physics so why not be able to capture it and reconstitute it in an online world.
My only criticism was that the speed with which Samantha (Art3mis) forgave wade without any reconciliation seemed …

Эрнест Клайн обладает всеми качествами, необходимыми современному писателю: он в совершенстве владеет всеми буквами английского алфавита (это A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, но у каждой из них есть и зловещий карлик-двойник, вместе они это a, b, c, d, e, f, h, g, i, y, j, k, n, o, p, q, r, l, s, t, u, v, w, m, x и z) и большинством арабских цифр — в книге наиболее часто встречаются 1, 9, 8, и моя любимая 0 — и может генерировать их в большом количестве, работая за обязательно включенным в сеть компьютером с помощью аутентичной для 1980-х годов клавиатуры Apple Magic Keyboard.

Книга Ready Player Two является продолжением книги Ready Player One (это умная отсылка к системам нумерации, в которых Two стоит следом за One и означает на …
