Marissa’s Review of “Ready Player Two” by Ernest Cline

By: Marissa Allen


The highly anticipated sequel to the beloved worldwide best seller Ready Player One, the near-future adventure that inspired the blockbuster Steven Spielberg film.

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 1,000 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.

Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline became available November 24, 2020.


4/5 Stars

Still a wild ride.

While I didn’t find myself as immersed in Ready Player Two than it’s predecessor, I stilled loved this story. Tons of fun pop culture references per the usual. You find yourself dealing with fun quests dealing with things like John Hughes movies, Prince, and Tolkien. Taking a path with these properties that you would never expect.

Still dealing with life and death consequences of moving technology forward, we get to see the relationships between our favorite characters years later. Things aren’t the same, but will this quest bring them back together?

I enjoyed this thrilling story and will be rereading again!
