"'If I reach the egg, I’m going to split the prize money equally among the four of us.'"
Ready Player One is a dystopian fiction story about a poor boy named Wade Watts who shares how he won a video game creator’s entire will of more than a billion dollars.
Wade Watts lives in “the stacks” a stacked mobile home town in the year 2045. His entire life is centered around OASIS a video game created by the late James Halliday. After Halliday’s death OASIS users around the world are given the opportunity to find his entire multi billion dollar will. Ready Player One tells the story of his struggle to win the money and stop a company trying to make people pay to use the OASIS.
I thought this book was a great example of perseverance because Wade continued to persist even though times got tough and it seemed like he wouldn’t be able to make it through.
