I realize that this post is a little all over the map, but that’s how I feel about this book. I liked some things about it, and I didn’t like others. If you aren’t into games, I don’t really know that this book would hold out much appeal for you, but if you have even a passing interest in video games, I think this is a fair book about the state of games and the gaming industry as it is now.
I was drawn to this book because of a post I read recently on the Teen blog at the Indigo website, which recommended it to fans of dystopian fiction in general and The Hunger Games in particular. A positive comparison to The Hunger Games was enough to get me interested in reading this one!
