Full review can be found on Delirious About Books
This was such a splendid read it took me no time to finish it, I also didn't want to put it down. This was no means without some flaws, such as the 'spore wars' and who was wiped out, but it was action packed, fast paced with an intriguing plot.
This concept reminds me of the movie Gamer starring Gerard Butler. I am intrigued at the idea that someone can be controlled electronically by someone else like playing a character in a game. I think that is why I liked this book so much (not that I want to be controlled or be controlling!) as it was along similar lines. If you find the idea intriguing as well, then this is a good dystopian to read.
