Oh my crone!
This is an AMAZING BOOK!!! I really don't even know how to describe it.
Here is what Amazon has to say...
In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.
That sets you up for the story. It references the decade of the 80's in every pop culture way.
No more - you just need to read it or listen on audio book as I did. Just amazing.
