DECISION keep

So… I read this near the end of the Readathon so I was half asleep when I finished it. And about halfway through I had a friend over that wouldn’t shut up about voice actors (being amazed that there were sooo many anime I’ve talked about that people from his Dungeons & Dragons thing voiced or something. Like I care).

But… I liked it. It sort of gave me an Ender’s Game kind of feel, but less serious. It brought in the video game/reality/dream thing which was fun.

Apparently it’s first in a trilogy, but having read only this one, I’d say it stands on its own just fine and would recommend it.
