#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling sequel to the beloved worldwide bestseller Ready Player One, the near-future adventure that inspired the blockbuster Steven Spielberg film.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST • “The game is on again. . . . A great mix of exciting fantasy and threatening fact.”—The Wall Street Journal


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 a thousand 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 S1monSays
    I really enjoyed the first book, but this one…it seemed like reading an essay that had a max word count that repeated the same concept over and over in almost the same words, over and over, just to meet the required amount of words….it could of been great
  • Ready Player 2

    By AJ3
    Good, but not quite as good as the first book. A little too wordy. All the descriptions of getting the shard from the Prince’s were way too long.
  • Really good sequel.

    By Mech360
    I saw a few reviews complaining. I don’t see why. Almost everything plays fine into the story and future humanity. The nods to pop culture were so detailed I learned stuff I thought I would have known. I want this as a movie! My 9 year old Daughter permanently leaves Ready Player One in the Blu-ray.
  • Aweful

    By Sputnick1986
    When I read this book, I instantly knew it had to have been written in 2020, with all the woke references. I feel people were excited for a sequel, but it wont age well, and it just reads like cheap virtue signaling to make a quick buck, and sell movie rights before people forget the first one, and the actors getting too old. Sad to see a writer ruin his own story by rushing out this hack job of a continuation.
  • Too many social issues

    By sockmonkey18
    I feel like it would have been a better read without going into all of the current social issues: Racism, sexism, identity etc. Otherwise I felt the 80s theme was over the top and parts dragged in story line.
  • Embarrassingly bad prose. Shallow character development. Unoriginal plot.

    By Trystero Montevideo
    This follow-up has none of the fun and magic of the first. This is not the insightful exploration of life in the metaverse that you may have been looking for or expecting after RP1.
  • Beautiful ending

    By cherbearstone
    Well… the ending was beautiful. There was a lot of filler and honestly it just gets really redundant. I feel like the same sentences when it comes to description are on repeat. Some parts I just jumped over the details so I could get to the story line. I love the characters keeping up with them was important to me. However with the bad again the ending is very beautiful and a exciting look into the possible future…
  • Great sequel

    By Shadow_Clone7242
    The year is 2022 and Iv just discovered “Ready Player 2”. The book was amazing and an amazing continuation of the first. Thank you for you’re hard work and effort in making it.
  • How is this at 3.9

    By cooldoggie9
    This was definitely not as good as the first one but it should have been a bit lower than the first one
  • Excellence

    By Consul1887
    Just brilliant book by Ernest once again can’t wait for the movie and a third book to make the trilogy, it should be perfection.
