I read this in ARC and it was a fun read and a definitely solid first novel. While I enjoyed the time spent alternating between the heads of the reluctant hero and the megalomaniacal supervillain, its structure was a lot of build-up and not as much punch as one might want out of the climax. Still, with all the world building and the interesting character bits in this book, it's forgiveable. Still, very solid and enough to make me look for this author's next book.

It took a long time to get in to, and once I was in deeper, the narrative was confusing at times. Grossman told the story from Russel's perspective, but it jumped between personal narrative and flashbacks that weren't always apparent. Part of that could have to do with the fact that I read the Kindle copy rather than print.

All that said, I enjoyed the book. I know a lot of it was a little stereotypical of programmers and game designers, but the idea of a single game so wide and sweeping is interesting and exciting and made for a good finish.… (més)
