Interesting concept of a future where most humans are a part of a vast gaming system. All work (and play, of course) involves being a part of virtual games. The top scorers' reward is immortality. ( )

Sorry book, you are not The Adoration of Jenna Fox.

I still might read you, though.

I enjoyed this novel much more than expected, and a great deal more than Hunger Games. The premise here is plausible and the speculative elements are all too sound, especially given current technology and cyber-social trends. Metaphors reaches into humanity with a cool eye and exposes the heart.

As cerebral as all that sounds, the plot moves, action abounds, and the notion of true love is explored. What more could you want? Great novel, especially for a debut. Landstrom reminds me of William Gibson and Neal Stephenson -- satisfying and challenging reads, all. ( )
