Review: The Eye of Minds

   Posted by: Garrett   in Path

This was like a mix between the Matrix and Tron . . . so every nerd and geek should read this.

Also, apparently, there is another book. I’m not sure if it is a series or just another that is set in the world, but it was a good read.

Characters: James really excels with his characters. The main character is Michael, who is a virtual reality gamer – total body immersion. Maybe this is also like Total Recall then too 🙂
Michael has a couple friends who he only knows online who help him.

Plot: The main plot is that someone is messing with people in virtual reality – making it very dangerous. The government wants Michael and his hacker friends to find out who is doing it so that the government can stop them. But it is a potentially deadly game to trust a teenager with.

Setting: Most of the setting is inside this virtual reality environment where you can go into game areas inside the city of the VR world. Michael and his friends need to explore some pretty dark corners to figure out what is going on.

Conflict: There is the main conflict with the hacker who Michael is trying to track down, but there is also conflict between Michael and the government (their methods are a little nefarious).

Text: This is an interesting YA scifi thriller that I think young and old alike will enjoy.
