Description

The Matrix/ Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games ...

What if, instead of traditional schools, children learned by participating in a virtual reality simulation, one that allowed them to experience, "life" from birth to death - multiple times?

What if one player,
on his final play,
could change the world forever...?

  • The Game is... Mediocre

    I really, really enjoyed the premise of this book. The beginning stages of explaining the game and how it worked were very interesting, however the book just wasn'tnt descriptive enough when detailing Trew and Danielle's lives together. I was turned off by that fact during the second half of the book but overall it was a good read.

    This is an interesting story premise but poorly written with no character development, not enough back story to fully understand the setting, and an abrupt ending.

    This book has been one of my favorites since I was fourteen years old. I recently read it for the fourth time in as many months; it still doesn’t quite get old. While the writing is far from perfect and many characters, particularly children, suffer from “Same Voice Syndrome,” The Game is conceptually one of the best books I’ve ever read. The philosophical questions raised and the exploration of the role of religion in personal and societal spheres are fascinating and well-handled; the characters are interesting and the world built is equally compelling in its dystopian deterioration. If you’re too much of a stickler for smaller writing follies, or only accept works written to exact style and grammar specifications, this may not be the book for you. Otherwise, I’d recommend it to just about everyone else. I can no longer count the number of times I’ve read it; it’s worth reading at least once.

    Even during a second read through I am not only captivated by this story, but intrigued in my personal life by the concept. This idea is fascinating and well written. I would HIGHLY recommend.
  • I love it so much

    So maybe someone who doesn't read much , doesn't have what it takes to review a book . Never the less , I'm going to write one any way . I really loved this book . It has great flow , and plays like a movie in my head when I read it . Yep I've started reading it again . Well written , well thought out . I'll be purchasing the others in the series for sure . If I had one critique it would be that it was difficult for me to relate to the main characters as they were children . Most children I know aren't like that , actually there aren't any children that I know like that . Though to be honest it was part of the allure to the book . I'm a fan !

    It’s a very fascinating concept and very thought provoking. I enjoyed the plot and seeing how even in the future the economy is still the irrefutable authority for both the better and the worst, but I feel like the focus shifted too quickly at times and the writing strategy, Show don’t tell,” would greatly improve it. The idea of avatars having “Talent” was intriguing but the reader is left oblivious to what it actually is.
