It's a scary read from start to finish. The first chapter opens right in the middle of the action, and the story just keeps going from there, all the way through to the end of the book.
Some of the scenes are really scary and I definately DON'T recommend reading this book in bed - you'll see what I mean when you read this book.
I hope that someone makes this book into a movie because it would be really great.
The story is about a young boy who inherits a computer game that is possessed. As he plays the game, every time the hero in the game dies, someone he knows is murdered in the same way. All the weird creatures come out of the game and commit brutal murders including disembowlment, snapping someone's head off and slitting someone's throat. And the best part is that it's all done so eerily and in unexpected places.
This is a "must read" for all horror fans.
