Charlie and his friends are the typical misfits who can't wait to get out of high school and start their real lives. In the meantime, why not play a "dark web" game hosted by an AI that has been fed ALL the information about human religions and therefore thinks it's God? GREAT idea!
For the first part of this book, I really thought this was YA. The teen character’s are mostly concerned with the college they want to get into, dealing with a bully, kissing that girl.
Until the G.O.D game really starts messing with them and the shivery fun starts!
This book makes you think hard about how far you would go to get what you want. Would you anonymously pick up and deliver a package...if you were 80% sure it wasn't harmful? Pretend you're a racist? Kill someone you hate to save someone you love?
This book is full of so much sticky ethical goodness and not-too-far in the future (like really the next minute) techy gamer fun. (Actually, I'll not sure the G.O.D game isn't a real thing right now.)
Get past the first 3rd and the character set-up, and you’ll enjoy this smart, tech horror book!
