In the Books Section:
- Did you read the book?
- Did you like the book?
- Did you understand the '80s references? If any flew over your head, what were they, and did not getting them reduce your enjoyment?
- Was the main character relatable to you? Would you have found them less relatable if you didn't have the '80s background?
- Was there LGBTQ content? Was Aech's gender reveal necessary? Would anything have been different if Aech had been male? Would anything have been different if Art3mis had been male?
- Have you played a similar type game? How does Oasis compare to Second Life? To EVE Online? To Everquest/WoW/GW? To MUDs?

- The founders are arguably similar to Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak. Are there other characters who had close-to-real-world analogs?
- In the '80s, the art-book Masquerade had a similar premise (and other examples exist): a real-world hidden treasure, with clues contained within the book's content. Ready Player One did this as well (and the prizes have already been discovered and claimed); what do you think of this mechanic?
