The book was a little hard to get into at first. Once you realize that the story is from the POV of an online game addict the confusion resolves.
This is a story of a guy so into his online games, that he is willing to risk everything to keep the thrill alive. It is only at the end, that he realizes just how far he has gone and how much he has placed at risk.
I don't know that the author intended it to be a cautionary tale, or just a punk cyber fiction.
In any case, the story is a graphic example of addiction gone unchecked,
For instance, the second paragraph of the story introduces a character without naming or describing him, saying "he" and "him" - it's not until the third paragraph that the character's name comes up. These things throw you for a loop. First reading about a character as if we're supposed to understand who they are, then suddenly seeing a name as if you're supposed to recognize it. The opening sequence then gives way to a different setting - so if you only read the preview, you'd think this is a military sci-fi space battle story. It isn't. That may confuse some people as well.
The story picks up quickly enough after the opening sequence, although the main character is unlikable. It starts to get interesting. Then some things happen which don't make a lot of sense. I suppose they'll be explained in a sequel to Hypercage.
Overall I thought this was an ok enough story with a nice cover. Objectively there isn't much 'wrong' and this is a short read. Subjectively, Hypercage didn't pull me in or wow me.
