The 80s, in all their awkward glory

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

If you have ever daydreamed that all those skills you acquired while learning to beat a video game would someday be not only useful, but also lucrative, this book is for you. The basic premise is that the inventor of a huge online simulation similar to Second Life has died, leaving behind a treasure hunt in the online game. You solve it, you inherit billions. If you grew up in the 80s, you'll recognize references to the movies and video games of the time. This is a fun, awkward, geeky, nerdy romp to the finish line.
