Description
Days after winning OASIS founder James Halliday’s contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything.

Hidden within Halliday’s vaults, waiting for his heir to find it, 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’ll 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.

Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wade uses the OASIS as an escape from reality and these books are basically like having my very own ONI headset and getting to join them on this amazing escape!

I loved jumping back to where everything was left in book one as I missed all the characters so it felt a little like going home. Once again, just like Ready Player One, Wade and his friends have to go on yet another quest and with each clue / challenge we get to experience the same wonderful nostalgia as we did previously.

I think the nostalgia and references to movies and games is why I enjoy it so much. Reading references to some of my favourite movies such as Curly Sue, enjoying a whole quest focused on Prince and planets solely based on the many works of Tolkien was just fantastic. If the OASIS was real I’d definitely be addicted to being able to walk around these worlds…..but this series will have to do me for now…

Whilst there is yet another quest for them to do, the story that came from it was really interesting and definitely a lot more sci-fi this time, especially near the end. Maybe you could say it felt a little bit too far fetched but I didn’t care, as the whole concept of these books are far fetched if you really delved into it.

Overall this was just as mesmerising, utterly absorbing and equally as fantastic as its predecessor, Ready Player One. If you enjoyed that and want to be transported back to the OASIS along with all your favourite characters then make sure you give this a read.
