WOW. This book blew me away! I have never read a book like this – as I am a rather nerdy girl, I was in my element; especially the references!
This book is basically about one of the world’s biggest game developer that has created a virtual world that people tend to live in, instead of their everyday lives (as their world is corrupting and becoming miserable). The game developer dies, once this has happens, there is a video posted on his website from the creator himself saying that he has built a game within the virtual world. The objective of the game is to proceed through several levels (if you can find the starting point), they will need to solve riddles and puzzles. The winner will win the creator’s entire will, which is valued of billions of dollars!
So this book is mainly about the journey of this one guy, trying to solve the riddles and levels within the game. I won’t tell you anymore about the book, as it’ll spoil it!
I couldn’t get over how much I enjoyed this book – I didn’t want to put it down, I was that engulfed in it. This is definitely one of my favourite books now, AND it has been revealed that it is being turned into a film adaptation!
Go and read this book!
