Story Summary

 “You were born at a pretty crappy time in history. And it looks like things are only gonna get worse from here on out.” 
― Ernest ClineReady Player One

In the year 2045, 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.

What is OneBook?

Reading as a whole College experience – that’s what OneBook is. Faculty, staff, and students come together across disciplines to read the same book and participate in a wide array of campus events related to that book. Conversations are started. People make connections. Classes across disciplines delve into those connections a story can make to us all and help link the College community through this common project.
