AN UNEXPECTED QUEST. TWO WORLDS AT STAKE. ARE YOU READY?

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, 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.
 
Lovingly nostalgic and wildly original as only Ernest Cline could conceive it, Ready Player Two takes us on another imaginative, fun, action-packed adventure through his beloved virtual universe, and jolts us thrillingly into the future once again.

  • Great Sequel!

    I was definitely a little worried the second book would not capture the same flow and enjoyment I received from the first book, but it did not disappoint. Ready Player Two brings back all the fun of going on a epic adventure with lots of pop culture and also the fun of seeing a futuristic human civilization. Definitely a worth read if you enjoyed the first book.

    Very slow start, rushed the rest. I did enjoy some of the places the characters visited on their quests, but so much information was presented that it detracted from the actual story line. If you need closure past RP1 and can make it through the first third of the book, then this is for you!

    The fact that this is successful is shameful.

    Reminiscent of the old book with a new touch. I didn’t like it at the binging because it was really depressing but I find it very enjoyable now! I do recommend this book! Ernest Cline has no bad books! Seriously was scared about the plot being really pushed, but this book is addicting, I love it!
  • Excellent.

    This sequel, to me, seemed slow to start. After progressing about a third of the way into the story, it begins to find itself on familiar footing that made it’s precursor such a page-turner. Aside from the slow start, my only other complaint was the inclusion of too much “political correctness” and other liberal ideology that fail to advance the story in any meaningful way, thus seeming out of place. If you can make it beyond those two issues, you’ll enjoy a fun story with many familiar beats, and plenty more of what you probably enjoyed if you liked “Ready Player One.”
  • Pop culture bore

    If you pump enough pop culture references in an otherwise do nothing plot, does it get relatable and interesting? No. Flat characters. Expected plot sequence. Pages of nothing but pandering nostalgia for the 80s— key demographic they say. Could not finish the book as it kept putting me to sleep

    Twitter didn’t have enough characters to express the author’s virtuousness so he wrote a book instead.
  • BEST. BOOK. EVER!

    I wholehaertedly recommend this book to anyone who needs a new favorite read! Not only does it have references that just make you smile, but the plot line and characters truly make you fall in love with RP2 as much as the original :)
