This was a fun one! I was not born in the 80s so in all honesty, most of the references were lost on me but I did pick up on a few of them (especially the movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). This was a fast-paced read for me I just HAD to find out who won the game. I am eagerly awaiting going to see the movie in theaters too to see how they translated this intense virtual reality on the screen. Highly recommend to video game fans and anyone looking for a page-turner about an alternate world!
