Player One - Ernest Cline


(Ready) Player One è l'esordio letterario di Ernest Cline, uno scrittore maturato negli anni '80, fra Ghostbusters e Robotron, Casa Keaton e Pac Man.

Sembrerà forse troppo sperare che il suo romanzo, una caccia al tesoro che fa tornare in voga il decennio di "Ritorno al Futuro" in tutto il mondo, abbia un qualche valore letterario. Di fatto però il libro sta avendo un successo strepitoso, i critici lo amano, è già diventato un best seller e pare che ne verrà tratto un film, che vedremo solo se i Maya si sbagliavano di brutto.

Nel frattempo l'autore ha compilato una playlist su youtube che sarebbe pura follia ignorare.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - Excerpt 1

Hundreds of vidfeed windows materialized in the air, all over the club. Each displayed a live close-up image of Og in the booth, so that everyone could see his avatar clearly. The old wizard was wearing baggy jeans, sandals, and a faded Star Trek: The Next Generation T-shirt. He waved to the assembled, then cued up his first track, a dance remix of Rebel Yell by Billy Idol.

A cheer swept across the dance floor.

“I love this song!” Art3mis shouted. Her eyes darted up to the dance floor. I looked at her uncertainly. “What’s wrong?” she said with mock-sympathy. “Can’t the boy dance?”

She abruptly locked into the beat, bobbing her head, gyrating her hips. Then she pushed off from the floor with both feet and began to float upwards, drifting toward the groove zone. I stared up at her, temporarily frozen, mustering my courage.
