The Game of Lives is officially out in paperback! So if you haven't yet picked up Dashner's cyber-adventure trilogy, now is definitely the time to start!
This book is just plain cool. In the thrilling conclusion to his Mortality Doctrine series, Dashner has brilliantly imagined a world in which virtual reality has been taken to terrifying new levels where the lines between what is real and what is virtual blur dangerously.
There are so many twists and turns in this inventive plot, I never knew what to expect. Between trying to decipher what was real from what wasn't, deciding which characters could be trusted and which ones couldn't, and the intense and imaginative actions scenes, I was constantly on the edge of my seat.
Something Dashner does incredibly well in all of his book is writing teen dialogue. His word choices have such an authentic quality to them that really builds this great camaraderie between some of his characters and keeps the tension at a boiling point between others, and really brings these characters to life.
I loved how so many action scenes in this book take place in a virtual setting. Not only is it really creative and fun to read, but it also delivered an action-packed story where brains could very believably, and without any super powers, defeat braun. I loved that!
This book is, of course, perfect for fans of The Maze Runner series. I also feel like this is an ideal book for gamers as well as fans of YA sci-fi or dystopian novels in general.

A great conclusion to this series. If you like stories that take place in a virtual world, then this series is for you. If you haven't read the other two books, start with The Eye of Minds. Tangents (computer programs that have gained sentience) are trying to take over the world and human hosts that have connected to the VirtNet. I was often guessing whether Michael, the main character, was in the real world or in the VirtNet, and whether he is human or just a program. Is this a game? Or are peoples lives really at stake? These books always kept me guessing. The only real complaint I have is that the story ended without tying up what happens to one of the main characters. I assume that James left it open to write more books for the series.

She reads so so much and she really liked the Maze Runner series but for some reason she just couldn't get into this one. So much so that she didn't even finish it and that is rare for her. She just must be the exception here because I know this book has a lot of good reviews.

I haven't read the book because I bought it as a gift. So I am simply rating the condition it came in. It is mostly in excellent condition. It was also thicker than I thought, which was nice. One corner was bent and damaged, which it why it isn't five stars.

Despite Dashner being a great author, I feel like he didn't put much effort into this book. I love all of his books and the first two of the series were awesome, but this last one was almost action-less. Because this is the last book in the series, I'd expected a much more intense book. Over all, it's worth reading if you want to learn about how everything wraps up.

This book takes the first two and wraps up all the mysteries. After you pick it up I guarantee you won't be able to put it down. Each chapter has its own unique storyline making each one more and more suspenseful. There's not much more I can say without being a spoiler to the story. So get this book and start READING!!!!

Another good series by Dashner.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 11, 2016
Although not as good as the Maze Runner series (which is excellent) this is a good ending to another enjoyable story. As with the others the pace really picks up in the last third and you won't be able to put it down.
