Publisher's Summary

Im Jahr 2044 ist die Welt ein hässlicher Ort: Die Erdölvorräte sind aufgebraucht, ein Großteil der Bevölkerung lebt in Armut. Einziger Lichtblick ist die OASIS, eine virtuelle Ersatzwelt, in der man leben, arbeiten, zur Schule gehen und spielen kann. Die OASIS ist ein ganzes Universum, es gibt Tausende von Welten, von denen jede ebenso einzigartig wie phantasievoll ist. Und sie hat ein Geheimnis.

Der exzentrische Schöpfer der OASIS hat tief im virtuellen Code einen Schatz vergraben, und wer ihn findet, wird seinen gesamten Besitz erben - zweihundertvierzig Milliarden Dollar. Eine Reihe von Rätseln weist den Weg, doch der Haken ist: Niemand weiß, wo die Fährte beginnt. Bis Wade Watts, ein ganz normaler Junge, der am Stadtrand von Oklahoma City in einem Trailer lebt, den ersten wirklich brauchbaren Hinweis findet. Die Jagd ist eröffnet...

Hard to keep with storyline when it's in German

They don't tell you the narration is in German. Now spent $60 for one book. Good marketing I guess bad for reviews.

German! Not English!

Nowhere did it say this audiobook would be in German. Can't say anything about the content of the book since I don't speak German.

this is in German

There is no indication that this is a German translation, so rather a waste of time for English speakers I'm afraid.

This audio book is performed in German.

What made the experience of listening to Ready Player One [German edition] the most enjoyable?

First: I purchased this book already at Audible.de, but this weird comment of my predecessor with the one star provoked me to buy it once more, which gives me a chance to rectify his/her mistake.
Second: Ready, Player and One are words nearly every German unterstands, so the title has not been altered.

This book is the most enjoyable, funny and entertaining romp I ever had the pleasure to hear although I'm not a nerd.
Get the version with Will Wheaton and you'll know what I mean. He performs equally brilliant.

What other book might you compare Ready Player One [German edition] to, and why?

Only Ready Player One with Will Wheaton. There is no comparsion to any other book whatsoever.

What about David Nathan’s performance did you like?

David Nathan is one of Germanys best narrators.
He performs uniformly outstanding whatever he reads.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I've listened to it all in one sitting, and by now to both editions more than once and will do again in the future.

Any additional comments?

My favourite audio book ever.
Folks, learn German and your plight is at an end (just a joke!).

Has Ready Player One put you off other books in this genre?

Would you be willing to try another one of David Nathan’s performances?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Any additional comments?
