In short, everything we presently fear has come to pass.
It is the ultimate dystopian future. Using a visor and a set of haptic-feedback gloves, Wade and millions like him enter its realm daily. Designed by programming genius James Halliday, the OASIS started life as a video game, with people adopting avatars, going on quests and generally leaving the real world behind. Slaying your boss was a popular element of the game. Wade attends school in the simulation, while his mother works two full-time jobs: one as a telemarketer, the other as an escort in an online brothel. Wade spends his nights revising — playing Galaga , a classic arcade game from the 80s, and reading X-Men comics — wedged between a wall and a dryer in his tiny trailer, every learned reference boosting his power in the simulation.
