    I got this book when it was new, which is a good 20 years ago now Back then the virtual reality aspect seemed really cool and cutting edge Now the gaming is all very dated and awkward I can t imagine people enjoying it much today who aren t either Anthony fans or re reading the book after having read it long ago I still own my copy because of the nostalgia factor, but I can certainly recognize its flaws I d say one of the biggest, then and now, is Anthony s obsession with suicidal teen girl I got this book when it was new, which is a good 20 years ago now Back then the virtual reality aspect seemed really cool and cutting edge Now the gaming is all very dated and awkward I can t imagine people enjoying it much today who aren t either Anthony fans or re reading the book after having read it long ago I still own m...

    This is, if not the first work of Anthony s I actually read, the first I enjoyed so much that I recognised his name as a tour de force Of course, I reread it for these few reflections, but I almost didn t need to it s a book I devoured time after time after time It s on par with every big book, series or author that shaped my reading life, and there are many of those.I have a very strong memory of listening to this book on a Road Runner or Book Courier, both of these are very niche reading m This is, if not the first work of Anthony s I actually read, the first I enjoyed so much that I recognised his name as a tour de force Of course, I reread it for these few reflections, but I almost didn t need to it s a book I devoured time after time after time It s on par with every big book, series or author that shaped my reading life, and there...
