    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

Apesar disso, Zack diz conhecer a diferença entre fantasia e realidade. Sabe que adolescentes fanáticos por videogames não salvarão o mundo. Até que um dia, durante a aula de matemática, vê pela janela uma nave parecida com o caça Glaive, do videogame online, Armada, que ele costuma jogar todas as noites. Tal nave tem como objetivo proteger a Terra de uma invasão alienígena, fato que agora parece estar realmente acontecendo.

    Zack Lightman is a dreamer. He fills his days with wishful thoughts of life on other planets and spends hours playing videogames, neither of which have helped him make friends or find a girlfriend. His refuge from the daily disappointments of life is Armada - an online space-fighter simulator based on defending Earth from an alien invasion. It’s when he’s playing that he feels closest to his father, a champion gamer who died when Zack was a baby.

    Zack Lightman a passé sa vie à rêver. À rêver que la réalité pouvait être un peu plus semblable à celle montrée dans les innombrables livres de science-fiction, films et jeux vidéo qu'il a dévoré toute sa vie. À rêver qu'un jour, un événement particulier viendrait bouleverser la monotonie de son ennuyeuse existence et le propulse dans une aventure galactique lointaine. Il sait bien qu'ici, dans le monde réel, les adolescents ordinaires à tendance colérique et amateurs de jeux vidéo ne sont pas choisis pour sauver l'univers.

    Zack Lightman ist ein Träumer und Geek. Richtig gut ist er nur in Armada, einem Virtual-Reality-Spiel, in dem eine außerirdische Spezies versucht, die Erde zu erobern. Damit ähnelt sein Leben dem zahlreicher anderer Gamer. Bis eines Tages ein echtes Alien-Raumschiff über seiner Heimatstadt auftaucht - und aus dem Computerspiel bitterer Ernst wird. Denn als sich die ersten Wellen außerirdischer Raumschiffe ankündigen, sind es allein die Gamer, die ihnen im Drohnenkampf gewachsen sind.
