Hello, I'm Everett Brown and I'm going to tell you about the book Ready Player One.
Wade is an orphan who grows up with his abusive aunt and her many boyfriends. They live in a trailer that is stacked up far in the sky atop other trailers. Wade has brown hair and is a bit over weight. In 2045 everybody is living in poverty because of the energy crisis and the only thing people live for anymore is the Oasis. The Oasis is a virtual reality world where you can do anything. Wades username in the virtual world is Parzival.
This is the main character Wade Owen Watts
This is Nolan Sorrento, the head of IOI. IOI stands for Innovative Online Industries. In the story, he tries to kill Wade because he won't tell him where the first gate is. He is a rich businessman who wants to get richer. He is the antagonist in the story.
When James Halliday, the creator of the OASIS (a virtual reality video game), dies, he leaves behind a fortune. If you could solve his riddles (in the game), obtain his 3 keys and unlock their gates, you would win his fortune. Our hero has so far unlocked all 3 gates, but died before entering the last gate. When on the planet Archaide, he played a perfect game of Pac-man and got a quarter, which gave him an extra life. Over half of the OASIS population was fighting the entire Sixer army on the planet Chthonia. In knowing this, the Sixers detonated a bomb that killed every avatar on the planet and nearby planets, as well as everything on them. Parzival (Wade's avatar) lived and cleared the last gate, winning the fortune.
While looking for the last gate the gunters (the people who are looking for the gate and fortune) are battling the sixers (the people in the company IOI). They have a big battle that will be the last.
The moral of the story is that even if you start at the bottom you can always can keep trying and you'll get to the top someday.
