This book was absolutely outstanding, the characters believable, and the plot well constructed and fasciating. I recommend it to all who are interested in technology, virtual reality, and alternate states. Whether you are into computer tech or just like stretching your brain muscles once in awhile,this book will make you question the very world we live in. Ask yourself...is this really our life...or are we all players in a game? And if we are does it matter, or does it give us the extraordinary, but rarely used power to do what we never believe we can do. As everyone knows...once in awhile. miracles do happen. Why? This book will take you to a place you may have only imagined. Read it! Jp

Holy Friggin Crap!!!!! ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER!!!!! Okay so the charactors were not that emotional or developed but the story plot itself was killer and crazy! So this is about Zack, an orphan who plaus this game that allows you to live many times to become wiser. Well when you turn 18 ur not allowed to play anymore, and you cash the credits you get for having a good life for real money. Well he took a risk and spent about 75'/, of his moneys so that his final play would be epic. And then his ex, Alex, get one last free play, because she lost all her points in a miscarridge when she was born. In the game. So she goes in and somehow, the two meet up, and it scewers Bransons plans. But he manages to stay on top. And Alex rises to the top as their lives intertwine and many people try to get rid of Trew (Zack). The ending is killer! A must Read! Shay!

I enjoyed reading The Game. It moved along well and had an interesting plot. There were also subtle messages to the reader about life that were spot on for younger readers. It was an interesting style of writing, but also seemed to restrict how the story was told. At times I was left with wanting a better description of the scene. One chapter left me asking what was that all about and why did you leave me hanging. Overall a good book and I'll probably pick up the next one.

I have just finished this wonderful book! The Game by Terry Schott is an action filled, adventurous, fictional book. I believe this would be a book for teenagers in high school. Zack is a teenager who enters this "game." He is one of the richest and most famous players. He is almost old enough to leave the game. He has to decide whether to risk all his money on his last game or to stick with something easy and cheap. I truly enjoyed this book. It has  adventure and intense moments that'll make you want more. I would recommend this book to anyone who liked Divergent or The Hunger Games. If you like to be kept drawn in throughout a book, this is definitely the book for you.

This book reminds me of " The Game Is Life" in the book; it is fantastic, yet it doesn' t seem to be realized by the public as a whole!

I loved this book. I got it because it was free for Nook and I must say, I have been burned before on free books but this was fantastic. I can't wait to read the entire series! I would say it's a cross between Matrix, Ender's Game and [insert favorite dystopian novel here].
