Madison County Reads: "Ready Player One"

The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library presents “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline as the featured book for Madison County Reads 2015.

Thirty years in the future, the hero must solve a series of virtual riddles based on 1980s pop culture and gaming to save both his real and online worlds. Throughout March, the public is invited to join us for games, movies, lectures, and more celebrating the '80s.

Madison County Reads: "Ready Player One"

Thirty years in the future, young Wade Watts lives in a real world of poverty, crime, and loneliness. But in the online world of the OASIS, he goes to school, hangs out with friends, and tries to solve a complex riddle left by a dead computer-gaming genius who loved the culture of the 1980s. If Wade succeeds, he’ll win a fortune. If he fails, he could lose his life.
