The Annihilation of Foreverland is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read this year. It’s entertaining, a little out there, and makes you think.

While I found this book to be different and new in many ways, I can also find similarities with many other popular (more mature) YA books/series. Ender’s Game was one that came to mind right away. The Hunger Games, and some other dystopian titles can also be grouped with Bertauski’s novel. I think fans of either of those books, dystopian, and books with an alternate or cyber reality might like to check this one out.

I think my favorite part of this book was Foreverland. It’s concept and the virtual world itself, made me wonder about the real-life possibilities of the human mind and our computer technology. This is often the case when it comes to science fiction and I think the author set it up effectively. I also thought the characters were great. Danny Boy, one of the main characters, was my favorite. All of the characters were well-developed and played a big role in the story. There were even a few times when I sympathized for the “bad guys.” With a story like this one, it’s not easy to do (but you’ll have to read it to know what that’s all about. can’t reveal too much without spoiling this one.)

This is the first book of a series, and if this is any indication of what to expect in future books, I think it has a chance of becoming one of my favorite series. ( )

Well, I've heard a lot of good things about this book.

And I have to admit I adore this cover.

But I found the book to be rather boring and I couldn't summon the desire to finish. It didn't bother me so I gave it 3 stars.

I quit at 20%. Later I'll link to a review from my friend Caleb who enjoyed this book much more than I ....if he ever finishes his review (*pokes Caleb*). Link! http://papyrus.calebblake.net/2012/09/02/the-annihilation-of-foreverland-by-tony... ( )

Teenage boys on a remote luxury island - billionaire sponsors for each boy - a computer generated alternate reality that is accessed by lucid gear through a needle in a stent in each boys forehead - a rebellious girl memory hiding in the Nowhere , bent on bringing about the annihilation of Foreverland - and a Director with God delusions...

I chose this book fairly randomly. I actually didn't mind it. It was an easy read. ( )

And trust he’s not insane. Danny Boy, the new arrival, meets Reed’s dream girl inside Foreverland. She’s stuck in the fantasy land that no kid can resist. Where every heart’s desire is satisfied.
