In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the  OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

The reason why I read this book was because so many hype around it. I was curious. Well, brashly, it was mundane. So many details that I didn't care. The characters, especially the main character. Why did it feel like he was 13-years-old? The voice, the story, it felt distant and unattached. Maybe this is not my cup of tea or water. Huh.
