    It wasn t the best example of the fantasy genre but surprisingly this book hooked me from the beginning, glued to my fingers, captured my mind even it s quite mash up of Stranger Things concept waltz with some Black Mirror episodes and finally doing Macarena dance with Ready Player One and takes a bow after the powerful performance accompanied by Nerve Emma Roberts and brother Franco teamed up for deadly truth or dare concept There are also some vibes of Ready Player One hid inside

    Even though I don t read science fiction very often and don t consider myself a gamer my Atari Nintendo Super Nintendo playing experience in the 80s and 90s doesn t count right , I actually enjoyed this book Now, I m not going to pretend I understood everything the author was going for here but this was a fascinating read for me and is a good example of how I need to branch out of my reading comfort zone every once in awhile Charlie and his friends are seniors in high school They call

    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestThis book is trying to be Ready Player One meets WarGames, as run by Hal 9000s with the gory morality play mentality of The Purge The God Game is exactly what it sounds like, an invitation only e game that is sent to the unwary If they play and win, all their dreams come true But if they die in the game, they die in real life and there s only one way to stop playing.Charlie and his friends are initially super into the God Game They

    I don t think that I am the intended audience for this YA book I am not a gamer and I understand nothing about coding I skipped over the parts that talked about computer code Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book in which the 5 teenaged protagonists 4 boys, 1 girl belong to an informal tech group called the Vindicators at their high school The Vindicators join a game led by an AI chatbot who claims to be God The game begins to control them by doling out gifts and punishments They are faced with mo

    The God Game may sound at first like yet another juvenile sci fi journey, but it is as incredibly addictive as any video game ever made Once you start reading this, it s impossible to put down On the one hand, it s a modern version of Revenge of the Nerds On the other hand, it s a complex morality play And, on yet another hand there are lots of hands , what happens when you build an artificial intelligence that s convinced it s God Is it a game or is it real At one point do reality and virtual reality

    The God Game by Danny TobeyIn the G.O.D game, when you Win, ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE but if you Lose, you DIE What a premise to this exciting YA thriller suspense read where free will and choices in the game have real life consequences This certainly gave me the Black Mirror vibes in the setting of Ready Player One I love reading about how people navigate the morality of their actions to gain and advance in life for every action there is an equal or opposite reaction Charlie and his four other friends Pe
