Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Chuck Farris is a typical eighth grader. He loves to play video games, he is good at sports, and he hates school. Chuck discovers that his new PlayStation2 game, Dynasty Warriors, has some strange effects on him. He begins to know more than he should about ancient Chinese history, and then stranger things begin to happen at school. Soon Chuck and his friend, Josh, are in serious trouble as the real world and Chuck's video game world begin to blend. Troubles beset Chuck on every side when the school bully, Digger, also finds his way into the video game world. Then the battle is on. Can Chuck learn to master his growing superpowers in time to save both the real world and the PlayStation2 game world? Will Digger win? Will Josh and Chuck be trapped forever? The first in a series of PlayStation2 novels written by a mother-son team, this book is a combination of fantasy story and game hint book, perfect for luring in reluctant boy readers. Written on an easy-to-read level, it will catch them up in the premise of the game world being stronger than reality. Although the book has a predictable plot and straightforward characterization, it is a fun story with enough twists to keep the reader engaged. The only flaw is that in using real video games, the book might become dated as these games fade from popularity, but it is a recommended purchase where easier reading material for boys is needed.
