Epic – Conor Kostick

epic

Where fantasy and video games meet, there is Epic. In a society where violence is banned, people must settle their disputes in Epic, at the same time that they are trying to stay alive in order to accumulate wealth and status in both the game world and in reality. Impulsively, Erik creates his new Epic character to be female, and spends all his allocated start-up funds on beauty and attitude for Cindella rather than weapons, but something tells him that this is the way to go. She and his friends’ characters use a succession of unusual methods to save Erik’s father from exile and to challenge Central Allocations, the representatives who run the game, and thus, the society.

For all you videogame lovers…this is the book for you.  Imagine what life would be like if your job, your money, your social status, were all based on how well you could play a game.  Exciting and thought-provoking.  I really recommend this book.   ~ Jessica , Teen Librarian
