I'm reading this book called Ready Player One. It turns out that there is an Easter Egg in the book that takes you to a web address that lets you play an online Atari 2600 game.

If you beat the Atari Game, you unlock another game (I don't know what kind of game), and if you beat that last game first, you win a Delorean.

I've been trying the first game for a while now and I can't do it. Timing is everything.

Anyways, I thought I'd let you all know. Check out the book if you want a sweet ride.

P.S. if you are a kid-teen of the 80s, you will love this book.

Fuck off. Read the book.

P.S. this game is bullshit, once you beat the first game it gives you a QR code to a second game, which is on facebook so now I've had to create a facebook account.

LOL...I wondered when I read the book if there was anything like this in it.

I wonder if anyone ever won that Delorean? I remember trying to uncrack the codes and it was really hard.

Yeah. Very meta. Great freaking book, though.

I hope that Cline, like Doctorow, can continue producing quality stuff. Doctorow just keeps getting better, imo.
