Publisher's Summary

Imagine a game with no boundaries - waiting in parking lot, sitting at your computer, walking down the street. You could be called at any moment - and you'd better be ready.

This is not a game.

This is a novel of greed, betrayal, and social networking.

©2008 Walter Jon Williams (P)2012 Recorded Books

    Story
    "Recommended Thriller"

    This book is actually two books in one...the two parts are of course very interconnected, but I actually liked the first part a bit better than the rest. Williams has created a rather though and resourceful heroine, and the other characters are a little more one-dimensional, but that might be because you get to know the heroine very good in the first part.

    The book starts out rather fast, and you will blaze through the first part in no time, but it slows down a bit and you get a little more mystery to all the action. You will however figure things out quite early. Unpredictable this book is not...

    All in all quite a good tech thriller. The author has done his homework, and the book works rather well...recommended.

    Story
    "It's not really a good book either...."
    What disappointed you about This Is Not a Game?

    I just could not care about the story....it made no sense. I read a book called Hard Wired by this author and enjoyed it the most. I could not finish this one, made it about half way....which was a bummer...I almost fell asleep driving home from the airport. Had to pull the pin.


    What was most disappointing about Walter Jon Williams’s story?

    I just didn't give a damn about the character and the whole online gaming community approach to the story.


    Did Jefferson Mays do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The reading was well done and professional.


    What character would you cut from This Is Not a Game?

    Sigh....maybe the CEO guy that could not find a helicopter...


    Any additional comments?

    Why do so many people pass out 5 star reviews? People, on a five star scale....how the hell can this rate with the best novels in the world?
