Geek Book Club
The first selection is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Ready Player One takes place in the not so distant future, where thanks to an energy crisis the world is a pretty bleak place. Luckily everyone can spend their time in the OASIS, a virtual world that is a lot more appealing than the real one. James Halliday, the creator of OASIS, dies and leaves the ticket to his entire fortune hidden in the game. The protagonist Wade Watts spends all his time trying to find the 3 keys needed to win the fortune, and obsessing over the 80's pop culture James Halliday used as clues.
