Ready Player One Theme of The Home

A home isn't necessarily a house—it's just where you feel the most comfortable. Just as Harry Potter felt Hogwarts was more of a home than the Dursleys' house ever was, Wade Watts feels more at home inside the OASIS than he does any place in the real world of Ready Player One. In the OASIS, Wade can be whoever he wants to be, make friends with ease, and most importantly, feel safe.

Questions About The Home

  1. What are some of the reasons Wade doesn't feel safe in the real world?
  2. How does Wade make the OASIS his home?
  3. How does Aech's home reflect her as a person?
