If I were to compare this to another book, I'd say that A Good Game is like a hi-tech version of The Outlander. And that's all I'm gonna say about that because I don't wanna spoil the story in any way.
Charlotte is in a boarding school, studying and preparing for a marriage. Or that's what she thinks. Learning new things is exciting and she excelled in her studies. Submitting to the strict house rules is more difficult for the intelligent and opinionated young woman.
One night she encounters a handsome stranger. Trent. Charlotte fears that she'll never experience love and that fear makes her give into him. On multiple occasions. There are consequences and until it's too late to regret anything, she's fallen for him.
When the reality hits Charlie and she finds out the truth... she has no choice but to obey those in command. And soon she realizes, that there never were any choices to make to begin with. Everything has been laid out to her long time ago. There's a game going on. The world is the board and her moves are decided by others.
This was an amazing novel that rendered me speechless. D.D. Shaw has written a book that has romance, sizzling hot love, lies, betrayal, elements of sci-fi... you name it and it's probably there. Besides all that, A Good Game is also a raw depiction of human nature, what we are willing to do to survive and save our own lives. What some of us are ready to sacrifice to reach their goals and fulfill their dreams.
Beautifully composed together, the story flows effortlessly and keeps the readers on their toes the whole time. If you want a thrilling reading experience, I recommend A Good Game!
So this has got to be one of the most enrapturing books I’ve read in a long time. This story begins with a very Rapunzel-like theme in which the story’s heroine, Charlotte, is locked in an attic as punishment for her rebellious attitude at her finishing school. Charlotte prefers the attic because it’s the only place that gives her a look at the world outside. It’s this very view that changes her life in the form of a stud named Trent. When he wanders up to Charlotte’s window one night, she doesn’t know what to think. From there the relationship between them grows and becomes an intricate web of pain, love, and the growing realization that no matter what their lives throw at them, they can get through it together. I loved the mystery behind the story, the idea of Vision and the way that they control the fate of the people they save. This idea reminded me of “Big Brother” from George Orwell’s 1984 which thoroughly drew me into the story.
This book had a little bit of something for everyone—thriller, action, suspense, romance, psychological, and sci-fi. The characters were so well fleshed out and the development of both Charlotte and Trent is staggering throughout the book. The author did a fantastic job of bringing this story together and I can’t wait to see what the next book in the series has to offer!
I am just going to say, read this one if you like a story to keep you guessing because if I say more it will spoil it for you. This is a first for me from D.D. Shaw and I really enjoyed it and hope there will be more.
