Overview *Contains Spoilers*
This book was fantastic from beginning to end! It had me hooked from page one. It was a constant page-turner and I found that I couldn’t stop reading once I’d started. The chapters are relatively short in comparison to a lot of novels that I have read which suits the fast-pace of the book and keeps you reading.
This novel is set in the future where the majority of the citizens have implants which allows them to ‘live’ in virtual worlds. In a world where technology is becoming more and more dominant in our everyday lives, the futuristic setting of ‘Mind Games’ is entirely believable and realistic. It makes you think about whether virtual reality will be implemented into our lives in decades to come. Technology is ever evolving at a great speed which means that this book could be an accurate representation of what life will be like soon, or in ten, twenty or even thirty years’ time.
The only fault that I have with the book is that I found the ending very abrupt and I still had unanswered questions once I’d finished reading it. If you’ve read my review of The Death Cure by James Dashner then you will know how I hate ‘unfinished’ endings. However, this novel had so many merits, I didn’t let the ending ruin my judgement and rating of this book.
I would definitely recommend this book to older readers in the ‘Young Adult’ bracket, however I think younger teens would also find this novel an interesting read. It is an addictive book but the ending is emotional.
