Game Over: The MindWar Trilogy Book 3 by Andrew Klavan

This time, there’s no escape from The Realm.
The MindWar Realm is a computerized world created by a deranged terrorist named Kurodar. Built through a link between Kurodar’s mind and a network of supercomputers, The Realm is a pathway through which the madman can project himself into any computer system on the planet.
Twice before, Rick Dial has entered the Realm as a Mind Warrior and come back alive. But now, something has gone terribly wrong. A connection has formed in Rick’s brain that sends him hurtling into The Realm without his consent—and brings the Realm’s monsters into the Real World.
As Kurodar works to turn Rick’s brain to his own purposes, Rick’s waking and sleeping life is ravaged by terrors he never imagined.
Rick knows he has no choice but to face The Realm’s final and most powerful protector. But can Rick destroy MindWar without destroying himself and the people he loves?

Game Over by Andrew Klavan was a decent young adult novel, interesting and exciting but not my favorite by any means. I have enjoyed the overall plot idea of this trilogy, but it definitely has not been Klavan's best work. The writing seems very choppy and undeveloped, and the characters' emotions and thoughts are blatantly laid before the reader instead of allowing them to uncover them slowly as they read. As far as the storyline goes, I thought Game Over was better than Book 2 and about the same as the first one. It was a very easy book to skim due to the underdeveloped writing style, and I finished it in an hour. I did think that this book provided a very good conclusion for the book, but I still struggle to agree with Klavan's theology points, something I have had issues with in his other novels too. Overall, if you have read the other two books in this series and liked them, definitely read this one as well. If you did not like the others, don't expect a big difference in this book.

I received this from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
