"This is a dream, and you are leaving this place to go back to your other dream...you are simply moving from one dream into another. "
"Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream" the nursery rhyme says. Interlude-Brandon is the third installment in the Game is Life series, and rather than picking up where Danni left off in the previous book we go back in time to see how Brandon got to where he is today. What is reality, and how do we know what is real? Brandon and his friends struggle to keep their bearings as they move between the Game and the Dream.
What if life is a big computer simulation? Brandon has always treated life as a game, and this book show how his worldview has driven his successes. Watch his rise to power, see how the technology was developed, and learn more about the Timeless. Time is still running out... and by the end of this book you will know what that means!
Original review in 2015:
This was the best book so far in the series! I love where the author takes it and how he weaves the past into the narrative. I almost skipped the "interlude" book but am so glad that I didn't!
With a gazillion free books and very little money, I very rarely pay for books. I gladly paid for this one the moment I finished the preceding one.
At first I was a little bummed, NO! I don't want to go back... what's happening to Danielle and Trew?!!? But I recovered from that quickly as I learned so much about how people got to where, (and who) they are. By about 75% through I stopped doing just about anything else entertainment related, games, TV... and sat glued to this book. (Yes I fed my son and the cat... lol)
Fascinating premise, plenty of surprises believable characters to feel for, and with. More than once I've gotten an odd look for an outburst of "Ohhh!!" and "Holy pewp!" or "Oooh he's a bad bad man...".
Absolutely enjoyable, great escape, highly recommended... my friends have asked me to shut up about these books because now they want to read them. I've played just about every MMO out there, and got bored. But it certainly adds to my fascination.
I am DYING to know what happens next but I had to log in to Amazon to rave about it first.
OK! Now back to the story... shhh...
If you love stories with mind bending complexities, endearing characters, and that run the gamut of emotions than I highly recommend this series.
This is the third book of a four book series. Each book builds upon the foundation of the previous ones and so I strongly encourage you to read them in order.
If you have read the first two, then it might help to know that this story will not mention Danielle or Trew (Zack).
Instead the story jumps back to explain the (full) life of Brandon from age two until the very last scene of book two, Digital Heretic.
It answers many of the lingering questions about the game, it's creation, creator, and "who" is Brandon's father.
While providing many previously unexplained details, it left me with a whole new set of questions.
The emotional intensity is cranked up big time in this one. So much so that I was moved to tears of sorrow, compassion and satisfaction.
Note: there are torture scenes that were difficult for me to read. I was able to skim over them without any major skips in the story line.
Due to that content, I now add a cautionary warning for readers who may be sensitive to violence and to young adult readers.
With that caution in place, I recommend this title (series) to readers of Dystopian, Action and Science Fiction genres.
