The character development of this book is insanely rich - you will absolutely feel like you know these people, they are your friends,
Spoiler you work at Unfair Games
with them - you know their families. You tear up at their struggles. It is just rich, it is insanely well-written and while it took me about 3/4s of the way to fall in love with this book it was like falling off a cliff all of the sudden. As a gamer myself this spoke to me... I often gamed to escape and the deeply-developed worlds that Sam and Sadie find themselves in pull you in from outside the book - right into the pages. 
I loved this book, I loved Sam and Sadie and Marx and Ant and Simon and Dong Hyun and Anna Lee and their stories. 

The world around them is so well-written its like this happened. This is real. These are real people outside of the book and enmeshed into the real world that all of us live in. You live a whole life with these people in 397 pages. 

I adored this book and its unlike anything I have read before.
