Book Quotes | Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


This week I have chosen Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This was such an interesting book to read because it’s a dystopian novel, but most of the story takes place in a virtual reality called the OASIS. I’m excited to share my favorite quotes from the book with you. You can also read my review for Ready Player One here. 


“For a bunch of hairless apes, we’ve actually managed to invent some pretty incredible things.”

Ready Player One, Ernest Cline

Considering the main setting of the book takes place in virtual reality, I think he has a point. I also just thought this quote was funny.

“Whenever I saw the sun, I reminded myself that I was looking at a star. One of over a hundred billion in our galaxy. A galaxy that was just one of the billions of other galaxies in the observable universe. This helped me keep things in perspective.”

Ready Player One, Ernest Cline

I just thought this was a good quote that everyone could think about.

“I created the OASIS because I never felt at home in the real world. I didn’t know how to connect with the people in there. I was afraid, for all of my life, right up until it was ending. That was when I realized, as terrifying and painful as reality can be, it’s also the only place where you can find true happiness. Because reality is real.”

Ready Player One, Ernest Cline

I think a lot of people feel this way. It’s hard sometimes to connect with other people in the real world and a lot of us rely on social media or other things. But you’ll never really be happy with that.

“You know you’ve totally screwed up your life when your whole world turns to shit and the only person you have to talk to is your system agent software.”

Ready Player One, Ernest Cline

This quote is funny, but it’s even funnier if you know what was going in the book. You’ll have to read it to find out.

“No one in the gets what they want and that is beautiful.”

Ready Player One, Ernest Cline

It really is. I mean if all got what we wanted all the time, would we really be happy?
