The Game by Terry Schoot is unique in its own way. A boy that is 74 years old realizes that he is no longer old. His name is Zack. At first he is completely lost meaning he has no idea of nothing, even his own name. This is were Terry was clever. Zack like i said before was really 74 years old but he wakes up in a virtual reality world that is a video game that many other play. It was possible to record and store a players virtual life during their stay. Every one in the community has tooken notice to what has been happening and they followed their favorite players as if it were their favorite celebrity. The current world they live is, is called Tygon. Zach was a lucky player because he began as an orphan but brought himself up to one of the best players of the game. He has a decision to make once he turns 18. He can decide to retire in a really good position or risk it all and retire at the number one spot. Will he make the cut , what will the 30th anniversary of the game hold, and is it possible that the mainframe of the computer that controls it all, is becoming aware ? You must read the book to find out ?
My Personal Review
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about video games in a realistic fashion way. You may have not yet heard about the book but it should be put into a thought of consideration. This book has so many things that you probably wouldn't have thought of based on the title. The way Schott makes several plot twists in a certain way just makes my hairs stand up. This book brings together the real world and what mostly everyone does. Play video games. The book will bring you to an exciting state to the the point where you'll want to keep reading until your eyes fall off.
QUOTES FROM THE GAME
- "Belief is a remarkable thing. If we believe that we can do something, we can. If we believe that we can't do somthing, then we can't. Our belief system limits us, shaping our entire lives."
- "Trust as much as you can, knowing that the gift of trust will probably be the thing that ends it all for you someday."
