I'm starting with the rating on this one because I was impressed with the way the author handled video game violence. Many people (the "them"s and "they"s) believe video games are desensitizing our children towards violence. Along with movies, they're probably right. But what if the video game were real? What if `shooting up' people actually meant you were really killing sentient beings? That's what is explored in this book, and it is handled really well.
The book reminds me of The Last Starfighter (remember that movie?) meets Alfred Hitchcock with a side of Star Trek. At first I was worried that the book was going to be too dark for me, more on the horror side, but it wasn't.
The characters range in age from 8-15 so I think this book would appeal to middle grades as well as youth. I'm an adult (most of the time), and I blew threw it in 24 hours because I enjoyed it so much.
Theology: Integrity and Regard for Life
This is a book written by a Christian but it's not Christian fiction. There's no preaching or overt faith references. There's not really any hidden theology in the book either, with the exception of a passing reference to prayer.
But, what I liked about the book was the integrity of the main character, Jeremy. Here's a guy who's really savvy and understands what's important. If I had a son, I would want him to be like this kid. I would let my daughters date him (probably). ;)
As discussed, video games, violence, but also sibling rivalry.
This would make a good Christmas gift for a boy who loves video games (if you can get him to read it) or any reader who loves a good story.
Thank you to R.L. Copple for giving me a copy of this book to read.
I agree. ;)
