Ready Player One by lerms Ready Player One by lerms
Fanart for one of the best books I've read lately.
"Ready Player One" by Ernie Cline.
I think I'm one of those that feel that the book was written especially for them. I may not have gotten all the references but damn I still enjoyed the heck out of it.
If you haven't read it, go read it now. It's super awesome, thank you Ernie for writing it.

I've recently read the book. It blew my mind and the fact that you here have perfectly encapsulated the awesome nature of the book blows my mind as well. I hear they are trying to adapt, never going to happen, BUT maybe an animated feature? Thoughts people. Nice work by the work

This is, by far, the coolest poster I've ever seen.  Is there anyway I could get this on a t-shirt?  This so totally rules!  Yeah, I've read RPO five times, so far, as it is a most excellent novel.

I am wrapping up a free-to-play video game for the Oculus Rift based on the stacks from Ready Player One. It has Ernest Cline's approval. I would like to use this as artwork on an arcade cabinet in the game. I will post images of it here in a few hours once I have it mocked up:
oculusdrifter.blogspot.com/201…

I will give you full credit at the end of the game.

Looks like one of the real old choose your own adventure book covers.  Awesome!

I don't know if Ready Player One is the definitive book about nerd culture, but it is probably the best one out there right now.  Loved it!

About halfway through and it's fun as heck! I only worry it will be largely unintelligible in a few years due to how much is built upon references, new and old. Then again, that's kind of the point of the whole story so who knows. Love this take!

Utterly fantastic cover. And yes, I agree, this needs to be either the next edition's cover or a poster for the movie (if Warner Bros. ever figures out a way to release it).

Just finished it! That book was super fun and I loved it. Oh how I want OASIS to be real... (though I could do without the crappy real-world future...)

Just loved it. Awesome picture. To anyone who's read the book, the references are all abundant and obvious. Really great way to capture the trivia-tastic tone.
