In Ready Player One by Ernest Cline there was a lot of different elements in the book that benefitted the players. All of these things helped but not as much as one thing. In this book I think friendship between the players was the true "power". One friendship between two people that I think was very powerful and important was the friendship between Parzival and Aech. One example of the friendship being strong is when Parzival said "If you were a solo, you didn't want or need help, from anyone."

However, Jackson has not earned the praise she deserves. Hague expresses in her reassessment on the author, that the reason behind Jackson’s underrated novel is the complexity and abstract language making it “Hard to categorize”. (Hague 73) Jackson’s writing, Gothic in specific, has been explained as utterly terrifying and compelling.

One concept that I learned while reading this novel was that love or even attraction to someone can heavily deter you from any life goal or objective you have preset in your life. At times love and attraction can be the strongest motivations of the way you conduct your life, the things you do, think, and say. This is evident in Ready Player one, a novel by Ernest Cline, when the protagonist Wade Watts has a realization that he was no longer doing anything to try and further reach his life goal to find the egg in the OASIS. His life had been chained up, picked up, and slammed off course by the woman of his dream, that he had never met in real life (only in the OASIS), named Art3mis.
They were calm, almost peaceful, they weren’t scared at all. It made me realize “Surely it couldn’t be that awful?” But boy was I wrong. The breeze felt cold on the backs of my shaking legs. In addition, it was obvious the weather would only grow worse from the grey clouds that hung above my head.
