The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
Expected Publication: October 8, 2013
Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?
But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.
The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team.
But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.
Okay, so I'm a MAJOR fan of James Dashner already! The Maze Runner Trilogy just blew me away!
With that in mind, it will not surprise you to know that this book was just as good if not BETTER than Maze Runner! This is a super cool computer scifi story that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Anything could happen at any time!
It's a wild adventure through this virtual world to stop this serial killer. It gets creepy at times, and intoxicates you with it's awesomeness!
MUST READ FOR SURE!
