As part of YHC's Common Reading Program, Ernest Cline will speak about his book “Ready Player One."
“Ready Player One" was selected as the 2013 book for Young Harris College’s campus-wide Common Reading Program, which serves as an integral part of the First Year Experience program that provides support and encouragement to new students and helps ensure their personal and academic success.
“Ready Player One” is a genre-busting and ambitious debut by Cline—part quest novel, part love story and part virtual space opera set in the year 2044. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a massive multiplayer online simulation game created by James Halliday, the wealthiest, most powerful man in the world. When news breaks that Halliday has hidden a series of puzzles that will yield massive fortune and remarkable power to whoever can unlock them, Watts sets out on a quest for the ultimate prize.
