Otherworld | Jason Segel, Kirsten Miller
For fans of Black Mirror and HBOs Westworld, and readers of James Dashner and Veronica Roth, Otherworld is the first book in New York Times bestselling authors Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller's new YA sci-fi-thriller series. The future is now. And the future is terrifying. There are no screens. There are no controls. You dont just see and hear ityou taste, smell, and touch it too. In this new reality, there are no laws to break or rules to obey. You can live your best life. Indulge every desire. Its a game so addictive youll never want it to end. Until you realize that youre the one being played. Welcome to Otherworld, where reality is dead. Step into the future. Leave your body behind. The frightening future that Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller have imagined is not far away. Otherworld asks the question we'll all soon be asking: if technology can deliver everything we want, how much are we willing to pay?

Well, this was an interesting concept, but not the greatest execution. The MC, Simon, really got on my nerves, I actually wish the book had been written from Kat‘s POV. I don‘t think I will be reading the other books in the series.

It is my FINAL ✔️ for #popsugar2019! 🎉🎉 This fills the #LitRPG prompt. Also #BBRC #TeenAngst : not appropriate for MG (violence)

Apparently, the universe doesn‘t like our family this week. Poor kiddo‘s bus never showed up at school this afternoon, so I drove in to Charlotte at 6 during rush hour traffic to pick up a car load of bus riders to help bring them home.

So grateful to Aaron‘s office who sent over dinner as a get well gift while he is recovering. It was a life saver tonight! I‘m still wired and wide awake so hoping to finish this book tonight.

LibrarianRyan What happened to the BUS. OMG. Hope your weekend is better. 2mo
Crazeedi That's awful! What craziness. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan @crazeedi Apparently, there was a horrible accident on I-85, which stalled traffic for hours, and it couldn‘t reach the school. Luckily, we take the other local highway to/from her magnet school, so It wasn‘t so bad. 2mo

Avanders Oh my *gosh* that‘s terrible! (edited) 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan also, not to sound so nonchalant, but I‘m not completely buying that story, because there is nothing on the local news about an accident. So 🤷🏻‍♀️. The poor school had no contact with the district‘s transportation office since it was after 5pm. It‘s a huge school district, and transportation is not always reliable. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I wouldn‘t believe it either because there should always be someone to take a call at least from the buss driver. Why didn‘t the driver call the school or someone to say hey things are happening. It‘s either a bad company or a bad driver. Sorry you and the kiddos have to deal with that. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan I will definitely be calling on Monday to find out what really happened, and submitting a complaint. When Maya texted me at 5:00 to say the bus still hadn‘t shown up (school dismissal is 4:15), I called the school and at that time, they had not been able to make contact with driver or main office. I just rolled in, and rolled out when I got there, to get home ASAP. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan And so grateful we added her to our phone plan this summer! She‘s at a magnet school 1/2 hr (in no traffic) from our home. I added her for exactly this reason, so she had a way to reach us if she ended up stranded anywhere. The bus has also broken down 3 times so far this year. The school systems in NC are SO underfunded. (edited) 2mo
Jas16 That is frustrating. I hope that you have a calm, stress free weekend 2mo
MallenNC I hope things turn around for you all now! Hope your husband feels better too. 2mo

This is the response to the MC asking a doctor, who had just come into the room, if his friend will recover.

Worst bedside manner EVER.

Don‘t know how I found this book but it‘s a good one. May be a better story than Ready Player One! Players are either wearing headsets and playing the game or by wearing a disk you are really in the game to stay and may really have a game ending reality. Maybe we on Earth are in that game??🤭😳🤔👽

Even though this one brings a familiar theme of blending virtual worlds with the real world, the characters and a few fresh twists make it a fun read. I enjoyed the main character, Simon, and his real-world motivation for diving into Other world, and I‘m really curious to see where it goes with book 2 this October. Overall a solid entry into the real world/online world genre that‘s oh-so popular right now.

Another one finished, doing quite well at the moment 😁😁 I give this one a 3.5 out of 5, I was pleasantly surprised with how good it was as I only picked it up to see how Jason Segel was as an author and he didn't disappoint however I liked it, didn't love it and I had a couple of issues with it, it got boring at certain parts, big reveals were disappointing and some random moments were written so dramatically it just left me a little baffled.

I really enjoyed this. I loved the MC, Simon. His snarky comments and sarcasm made me laugh. The world building was really cool but my favorite part was Simon and Kat‘s friendship. Friends since they were little, Simon says about Kat: “Love is too small a word for what I feel”. I‘ll be checking out the next book.

Coco Glad you enjoyed it!! 2y

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. My favorite character is Kat because she is fearless and brave. Otherworld is also filled with endless plot twist that you never see coming. This book, however, was missing something that could have made the book better. I have been thinking about this for a few days and I am still not sure what is was missing. I would recommend this book to any Tron, gaming, or augmented reality fan.

I can‘t help but wonder if I would have enjoyed this more if I hadn‘t just read Want and The Final Six, or if Ready Player One wasn‘t just about be released in theatres this weekend; this is not a bad book, but I couldn‘t help comparing this to those books or even Warcross.

I loved Simon, the MC, & his sarcasm had me rolling throughout! Tho I felt the secondary characters were lacking substantially in depth & development. I wanted to know so much more about Carole, Gorog, & more. Overall a so-so for me, tho I can see how others may love it! Part2 comes out this fall, but my journey ends here.

Huge similarity to HBOs West World (disclaimer: I DNF that tv series either lol)

TheBookKeepers @Wanderingwithwords it ended up being just a so-so for me. I liked the overall premise of the storyline, but found the book lacking. I loved the MC but there was very little development of secondary characters. Not a terrible read, and I can see why reviews are mixed. It was a quick read for me, but not a page turner if you get my gist lol! I personally won't be continuing the series. 2y

I‘ve heard it ends abruptly. I hope it at least answers some questions. This story feels like a mash up of so many different things. World of Warcraft, The Matrix, etc. I‘m not entirely sure how I feel about it.

I'm a huge fan of Jason Segel and swayed our book club to pick this because it was my birthday month and it just came out. It inspired me to finally get around to Ready Player One, which I'm reading now! I had a tough time getting started, and my friend said the audiobook, narrated by Segel, was a blast. I'm sure this is setting up a series, and I might try the audiobook next time.

This is a YA book which takes place, partly, inside a virtual reality video game. My fourteen year old really enjoyed it and gives it thumbs up. I also enjoyed it. That being said, it is a YA book and probably has more appeal for a 14 year old boy than his 44 year old mom.
Last day in Mexico. Now I have to go back to all that snow. 😢

At first I didn‘t like the book, but as the book progressed, it became more and more interesting. The characters were fighting for their real lives in a video game. The main male lead was just an idiot. He made some really dumb decisions. I liked the concept, but the delivery could have been better. I felt like it should have been more in depth. Overall a good story, and I will most likely read the next book just to find out what happens next.

I didn‘t quite like this book which was disappointing as a lot of people that I follow on booktube are reading it now. I just hated the characters and the plot was so bad that I wanted to punch a wall while reading it. Don‘t bother as the main protagonist is a whiny white boy and the rest of the characters are the same. Some characters had relations with other characters that were so out of the blue;other characters felt overdone.

I had such high hopes for this book! I love sci-fi, anf the idea of a virtual reality game where people were stuck in isn't new, but a good reliable plot if done right. Instead, it is weighed down by an unlikable main character and an uninteresting setting for a virtual reality. Not a fan.

❄️Sleepy Hallow is both under 200 pages and a book referenced in another form of media (TV).
❄️Queens of Geek discusses mental illness.
❄️Walk on Earth a Stranger was a book I had never heard of before, I only knew of the author.
❄️Retribution Rails is the sequel to Vengeance Road.
❄️Otherworld is the group pick.

I wasn‘t sure if I was going to like this book (written in part by the actor Jason Segal), but I ended up really enjoying it. It has a Hunger Games feel in places, if Hunger Games had been a video game. There are some smart lines (some of them pretty funny) and it ends up being a pretty quick read.

I liked this! It's kind of the middle ground between Ready Player One and Warcross.

Theres mystery after mystery all kinda wrapped up into one big thing that I didn't realize was all connected until the reveal.

I do wish the main character doing the saving wasn't a man saving the girl he loved (I mean...that's been done to death) but I did appreciate the female sidekick helpers.

I'll definitely pick up the sequel

Okay, I was very surprised when I turned this book over and noticed a very familiar face! I liked Jason Segel as a screenwriter, so I had high hopes for this one. This is book one of a planned trilogy, and it sets the story up nicely. I didn't fully connect with some of the characters, but the story is set within the world of Virtual Reality - so maybe that makes sense! Overall, fun read and excited to see where it goes!
