Publisher's Summary

What if playing computer games could save the world - and the government's secret weapon was you? Tom Raines is suddenly recruited into the Army to train as a virtual-reality combatant in an effort to help fight World War Three. Equipped with a new computer chip in his brain, it looks like Tom might actually become somebody. But what happens when you start to question the rules?

If you could sum up Insignia in three words, what would they be?

Edgy, Compelling, Cool

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the concepts introduced in the book, although there are some times when you want to slap the protagonist it is very well written.

Awesome narration!

The book was great, original yet reminiscent and had be constantly on edge in terms of the direction of the story. I wanted to write this review simply to commend Hugo though, I thought his narration was nothing short of brilliant and perfect for this book! Well done!

I thoroughly enjoyed Insignia, and couldn't put it down. if you're a fan of Ready Player One or Harry Potter, don't hesitate- buy this now.
