Published by Crown Publishing Group on August 16th 2011, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is a dystopian sci-fi fantasy novel about virtual world game called OASIS (Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation). The game changed the way people around the world lived, worked and communicated. In OASIS you can create a new identity, new face, and in a simple word you can create a totally new you!
James Halliday, the OASIS creator, is one of the wealthiest people in the world but had no successors to hand down the corporation he built. When he died he left a message to the world, one that called for the finder of ‘The Egg’ in a video game to gain ownership of OASIS. (at this point, it is sounds like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, but in whole story it way beyond charlie and Willie Wonka’s story)
The Main character is Wade Watts, eighteen-year old boy who use Parzival avatar in OASIS. Together with Artemis, Aech and Shoto as the the four main players in the game, they find themselves pitted against The Sixers. The sixers will stop at nothing in order to take control the OASIS, they will destroy the real world around you as well as the virtual world!
Definitely, Ready Player One is a MUST READ!
