Book 3: Ernest Cline's Ready Player One

  • This location is shown only to members

In July we’ll be reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, a novel that centers on a virtual world of OASIS. The year is 2045; overpopulation, high unemployment rates and energy shortages have resulted in most of humanity spending their time in the OASIS to escape the dystopian reality. In the previous meetup, I forgot to ask who would like to offer to think of some questions and discussion points for this book; if anyone would like to create questions and discussion points for Ready Player One, please write a comment below. Also, I have left the location of this meetup blank, as I hope to find a new and better pub/café by July for our group.

To add, I will be collecting $1 from each participant at the meet which will go towards the $15 monthly administration cost. Any contribution above $15 will be saved until our Christmas meet for drinks and/or food for all survivors!

    Great night yet again lovely people. I really look forward to seeing you all and having intelligent conversation about books. Loved this months book too which is a bonus. For those of you who I discussed the social etiquette of a Facebook friends request with at the end of the night I realised that I don't have my FB linked or my last name on here so if you want to find me here's a link to my page. https://www.facebook.com/felicity.shanahan.1

    Hi guys, I can't make this over any more. I haven't quite finished the book, but it's really good, so don't want to spoil it by hearing the ending. Sorry. Have a fun night.

      There's been talk for a long time about a movie so will be interesting to see if this is the start of it finally happening. There are tons of fan made trailers on the net.
