Publisher's Summary

A deadly underground game might just be altering reality itself in this all-new adventure set in the world of the hit Rabbits podcast.

“A taut mystery for a time of conspiratorial madness.” (Cory Doctorow)

It’s an average work day. You’ve been wrapped up in a task, and you check the clock when you come up for air - 4:44 p.m. You check your email, and 44 unread messages have built up. With a shock, you realize the date is April 4 - 4/4. And when you get in your car to drive home, your odometer reads 44,444.

Coincidence? Or have you just seen the edge of a rabbit hole?

Rabbits is a mysterious alternate-reality game so vast, it uses the entire world as its canvas.

Since the game started in 1959, 10 iterations have appeared and nine winners have been declared. The identities of these winners are unknown.

So is their reward, which is whispered to be NSA or CIA recruitment, vast wealth, immortality, or perhaps even the key to the secrets of the universe itself.

But the deeper you get, the more dangerous the game becomes. Players have died in the past - and the body count is rising.

And now, the 11th round is about to begin.

Enter K - a Rabbits obsessive who has been trying to find a way into the game for years. That path opens when K is approached by billionaire Alan Scarpio, rumored to be the winner of the sixth iteration. Scarpio says that something has gone wrong with the game and that K needs to fix it before Eleven starts, or the whole world will pay the price.

Five days later, Scarpio is declared missing.

Two weeks after that, K blows the deadline: Eleven begins.

And suddenly, the fate of the entire universe is at stake.

Critic Reviews

Rabbits chases the mysteries at the heart of gaming and popular culture. Cancel your evening plans and follow Terry Miles down the rabbit hole.” (Max Gladstone, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author)

Rabbits is a remarkably assured debut, deftly written and laced with intrigue. It combines Haruki Murakami’s slice-of-life surrealness with the thrilling pace and pop-culture throwbacks of Ready Player One. I loved it.” (Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld)

“Seemingly benign coincidences become clues to a mind-bending scavenger hunt in [Terry] Miles’ outstanding debut technothriller.... Miles masterfully combines mystery, danger, and scientific theory to bring the game to life until readers are just as caught up in searching for the next clue as the characters themselves. It’s a wild ride and it proves impossible to put down.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Nice try

I loved the original podcast. The book how ever does not create the same sinister feelings. The protagonist seems to be stumbling from one confusing situation to the next, led by very flimsy clous. It feels a lot like Ready Player One, but without the charm of that book. Character building is almost absent, and the protagonist seems to be surprised every time new strange developments comes to pass. You would expect a person that played a mysterious game, to be less freaked out, when mysterious stuff happens.

Dissappointed

I did not listen to the podcast everyone mentions and I'm sorry I listened to the book. I kept going thinking there was something to redeem it but nothing there.

Amazing

I loved this book so much. I’m a huge nerd for all the PNW podcasts. The person narrating the book did a phenomenal job. Usually I loath the people who read fiction on audiobooks but she did an amazing job.

No, just No

I have never listened to a more convoluted story in my life. Talk about going down a rabbit hole......... I feel like Terry Miles was tripping balls when this was written. For me this was hard to follow, took off in too many directions and really didn't explain much in the end. It left me unfulfilled and with no resolution in the end. This was like taking acid in the 60's only for you last trip to come back and haunt you in 2021. The narrator was fine, I've listened to her before. I'd be hard pressed to read anything by Terry Miles again. This one made my brain hurt, too many paths, too much backtracking, too many side trips, to many leaps of faith and not enough LSD in the world.

Suffers same problems as podcast

Just as in the podcast, the characters never really do much puzzle solving in a game that’s meant to be solved. Clues are just sort of handed to them from someone else who’s already done most of the work, without any indication as to how they ever got there themselves. Just once it might be nice to have a character actually play Rabbits, rather than the sense I might get if I started off Hunger Games on the third book. The whole “rabbits is broken” plot is a jump forward in time to a universe where there was already a couple of successful rabbits books.

I guess its okay?

The story begins strongly and introduces readers to a topic that cannot be defined but begs for an explanation. Unfortunately this novel lacks a clear sense of direction, and ultimately leaves me with far more questions at the end of the story than I had in the first hour of reading.
