Ready Player One Book Review

Abigail Escobedo

Ready Player One is about a boy named Wade Watts who is determined to win a contest. Wade Watts lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He is not studious, but he does study when it comes to James Halliday. Halliday is a dead billionaire who has left his fortune for whoever finds his Easter egg in the OASIS, a virtual reality world. He encounters the Sixers, who are trying to kill him to take control of the OASIS. At the end of the book, Wade grew as an individual. He became less antisocial, and he found love. Through his journey to find the Easter egg, Wade found the strength to fight for himself, help those who are important to him, and not make the same mistakes his hero did. This book taught me to enjoy life, and it showed me that not everyone gets what they want, and that is beautiful.
