23 posts | 8 read | 11 to read
For fans of Stranger Things and Ready Player One, The God Game is a brilliantly plotted science-fiction thriller about a VR game in which the stakes are impossibly high: if you die in the game, you die in real life Five best friends in a high school computer club get sucked into an underground hacker's game run by a mysterious A.I. that thinks it is God. It's all fun and games until people start to get hurt. And the stakes keep getting higher. As the Game pits them against each other and turns their high school upside down, it offers the ultimate promise - win and learn the meaning of life; die in the game, and die for real.

The God Game is Ready Player One meets Nerve. Is it possible that GOD exists through a computer. The game promises extravagant rewards for winning, but losing will bring serious consequences.
I enjoyed it and it was hard to put down. I could see this being made into a movie.
Thank you to @stmartinspress for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

The God Game is an intense, fast-paced thriller. The characters are relatable and likable, and sometimes quite surprising. The short chapters that comprise the story greatly appealed to me; they really keep the pace of the story going, but aren‘t so short that they prevent you from getting into and immersed within the story. Thank you St Martin‘s Press for an ARC of The God Game, given in exchange for an honest review.

This one is a pick with a caveat, it falls more heavily in the YA catagory than I thought it would. I'm 42 so it had some parts that just don't hold much interest for me these days 😏 That being said it was a gripping thriller, in that I didn't want to put it down, as I was anxious to see where it was all going and it gave me a few qualms along the way. Thank you #stmartinspress for sending an ARC to review. Release date 1/7/2020

I felt that this book compares favorably to the movie Nerve. Both of them were a fun, wild ride. This reads like a cautionary tale of too much technology. When your life has been infiltrated by so much tech, it becomes hard to distinguish what information is true or false.

I liked the character Charlie. He was a reluctant participant in the game. He seemed the most fully fleshed of the characters. This is fast paced and exciting.

collegecatlady I loved Nerve, the book and the movie, so I‘ll have to check this out! 1mo

I couldn't get enough of this book, I loved every second. The book traveled with me to this bridge (I didn't want to miss any opportunity I may have had to read). I will be recommending this. Thank you, @StMartinsPress for choosing me to read this. I still feel invested in these characters. Send my praise to Mr. Tobey! #TheGodGame #SurviveTheGodGame

IvoryLunatic I have this one too. But honestly, I‘m a wimp and don‘t usually read anything scary so I‘m not sure yet about trying it. 2mo
DGRachel I received a NetGalley invite from St. Martin‘s for this one. I‘ve plugged it into my December TBR. 😍 2mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @IvoryLunatic It sounds like it's more of a thriller than scary but I honestly don't know. @DGRachel Cool!!! I hope to read it in December as well. Happy Reading! 2mo

I won this book from a GR Giveaway. Even though my copy was an unedited manuscript, it still was good. I just had to get over the grammatical errors. It's about a group of teenagers that decide to play a game called GOD. A thriller that makes you think about just how much technology could be listening to us and effect our lives.

Won this on a GR Giveaway. Not much for Sci-fi, but love a good thriller. Going to start, will see if I like.
