Almost snow crash

Good story reminiscent of Snow Crash classic. The narrator was not great. The whole story was read as if a hyperactive teenager was telling it. It really detracted from the dark serious parts of the story.

Good effort but less than original

Not as original and creative as Ready Player One. Doesn't have as a riveting plot and storyline as Red Rising. Character development is lacking in a detailed way. If this is one of your first sci-fi books, you may like it. But if you read many of the towering great, this will disappoint.
