Title: Ready Player One
Author: Ernest Cline
Everyone my age remembers where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the contest.
You could change your name, age, sex, race, height, weight, voice, hair color, and bone structure. Or you could cease being human altogether, and become an elf, ogre, alien, or any other creature from literature, movies, or mythology.
In the OASIS, you could become whomever and whatever you wanted to be, without ever revealing your true identity, because your anonymity was guaranteed.
Ready Player One is a pretty popular book and for some reason it wasn’t really on my radar until recently. It sounds like a really interesting book and I’m definitely curious about the OASIS and what the contest is.
