My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
I had so much fun reading this book. It was very different yet it captured me till the very last page.
Plot: What would you do, if all of the sudden you popped into another world, where are game is played. A game where your life is a stake? I admit the first few chapters were very fast paced and with loads of questions popping in my mind. Who? What? Why? Where? Be patient, I told myself! I kept on reading and swiftly fell into the story. All the pieces come together little by little, keeping the reader fully entertained till the end.
Love/Friendship: This part is particularly interesting because of the circumstances. You see, you have to ask the right questions. Wrong questions might get you killed. And seeing these characters tip toe around what to say or rather how to say it, left me very anxious. Every single friendship formed was on hinge of keeping each other close yet far away. You played to earn your keep. To stay alive. All I can say is, these friendship go further than what I thought.
Big Picture: Once I settled into the story, the bigger picture came together and really I was stunned. At first I thought it had to do with government stuff but really goes way deeper than that. At the end all I thought was, “WOAH! ” It left me totally speechless and left me rattled. I turned the last page of the book thinking,” More.”
An extraordinary tale that life played as game is more dangerous than you think, Rush presents a vivid tale that is engrossing. Detailed with fantastic world building, Rush is smart, engaging read.
