Although it was disturbing and even horrific at times, this novel was captivating and well-written. You cannot help but hope the main characters will realize what is truly happening and that they will find a way out of the situation. Overall, this was an incredibly creative sci-fi thriller! ( )

The story is told through multiple characters. The boys wake up on an island in the South Atlantic Ocean a Tropical paradise where they can do whatever they want fish, play video games, roam they can do anything except leave. They are watched over by an elderly man know as an investor every couple of weeks the boys are sent to the haystack that is the gateway to Forever land. Where every dream impossible or not can come true but not with out a price. The Director and the investors vary from caring and kindly to creepy and cruel. The horror and suspense grows. The story line is unique. I highly recommend if you enjoy stories about technology, money and power. ( )

This turned out to be a really cool book. Techno-Thriller with a little human trafficking can go a long ways. I liked that I couldn't quite figure it out before the end. This story grips you and keeps you reading. I was rooting on the good guys even before they were the "good guys" ( )

A self-published, Kindle novel - so not me. On top of that, I think it is YA. I start a lot of these each year & never mention it because they're just not up to snuff & I hate to hurt the author's feelings. But I read this one & I'm very glad I did. It was a really pleasant surprise of a straight SF novel with a lot of fantastic elements. Quite an imaginative setup with well motivated characters, well drawn in a strange scenario that could be happening now or in the near future.

I spent the first 1/4 of the novel trying to figure out what was happening & the next half realizing I was right, but trying to figure out what the fix was. Then the last 1/4 was a mad dash to see who would win.

There were faults. Some of the plot points just had to be believed, but given the nature of the story, that was inevitable. Damn, I want to explain that more, but just about anything I say is a spoiler. Half the fun of the book is the mystery, trying to figure out just what is going on. It was a great ride & I look forward to reading more by this author. ( )
