Can I just say how excited I am that this book is going to be made into a movie?
As of March, it is said Spielberg will be directing the movie version of this book. I am sure the movie will be great, however, this book has so many details and it is so easy to let your imagination go wild while reading, it might be difficult to really take the visuals from a page to a big screen. It will be interesting to see how they deal with licensing since everything from Star Wards, Monty Python, Dungeons & Dragons and Matthew Broderick fill the pages.
If you are a gaming nerd, or 80s lover of all things, this action packed book will keep you wanting more!

Below is the summary of the book :
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. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
