The company says Otherworld is amazing—like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They say it’s addictive—that you’ll want to stay forever. They promise Otherworld will make all your dreams come true.
Simon thought Otherworld
was a game. Turns out he knew nothing. Otherworld is the next phase of
reality. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted.
And it’s about to change humanity forever.
Welcome to the Otherworld. No one could have seen it coming.@goodreads
There are guys online who swear it was heaven. They still sit around like a bunch of old geezers, swapping tales of epic storms, monstrous beasts and grisly battles. Talk to any gamer in their twenties and at some point they'll say: "You're too young to get it. You never saw Otherworld."
I thought the book was okay enough. I thought it was going to be set mostly in the gaming world like a lot of books are these days. But this book has some gaming and a lot of crazy going on in the real world.
Simon and Kat were best friends since childhood and later on have feelings for each other. But Simon is dragged away to another country with his rich parents and his connection to Kat gets further and further away.
Simon gets himself into trouble so they have to leave the country and move back to their home. Simon's mother and father are both bigwigs in their own right. And I must say they are jerks.
Simon gets inside Otherworld so he can talk to Kat, maybe find out why she's been avoiding him. They connect with each other a little bit but not so much. Even at school, Kat is acting weird. She's hanging out with a bad crowd of boys and other things. Simon knows this isn't Kat and is determined to get to the bottom of it.
When Simon finally gets the story out of Kat and they are trying to get through it all alive, it's a whole other ball game then Simon realized. There are some very corrupt people out there willing to do anything for this game.
I'm not sure if this is going to be a trilogy or a series of books but I would like to know what the end game is going to be.
