    I had high hopes for this one I saw a couple rave reviews go by including the Publisher s Weekly plug in the summary above and I was intrigued by the premise.But no Right now, I m wishing there were a way I could get my 2 back fromThe writing style is very annoying it s a translation, but I suspect that s unrelated The author has sprinkled inner monologue everywhere, ranging from outdated catch phrases As if and Run, Forrest, run to juvenile hostility Suck my ass I had high hopes for this one I saw a couple rave reviews go by including the Publisher s Weekly plug in the summary above and I was intrigued by the premise.But no Right now, I m wishing there were a way I could get my 2 back fromThe writing style is very annoying it s a translation, but I suspect that s unrelated The author has sprinkled inner monologue everywhere, ranging from outdated catch phrases As if and Run, Forrest, run to juvenile hostility Suck my ass, mofos Many paragraphs are concluded with some sort of exclamation or question That was so cool What the fuck WTF indeed The character HP is a egocentric asshole slacker, possibly a sociopath In an early scene, he s also a complete dick to his friend who is a recently converted Muslim He calls him by his former name, and when the friend reminds him of the Muslim name he now prefers, HP says,Of course I know, Mangey boy If you insist on turning yourself into a second class carpet seller, that s your decision He nodded demonstratively at Farook s Middle Eastern trousers, silk waistcoat, and long shirt Just don t expect me to buy into that bullshit You were Mange when we started school, when you used to smoke your mom s cigarettes behind the Co op, and when you lost your virginity to that fat Finnish girl in a tent at Hultsfred So that s who you are to me, regardless of whatever you, your wife, or your latest god think, okay Turns out the game is ideal for egomaniacal sociopaths, but how in the world am I supposed to root for this guy, much less endure his assholery for 300 pages The other character, Rebecca, is sympathetic up to a point, but she s also pretty much a stock character Female bodyguard with some trauma in her past, memories of which of course revisit her during sparring, so she accidentally incapacitates her sparring partner oops Yeah, that s never happened in a thriller before I nearly bailed at the 10% mark when the phone asked the HP for the 50th time whether he was REALLY SURE he wanted to be part of The Game What is this, a Windows update Get ON with it I see a lot of readers lauding the pacing, but I felt annoyance, not anticipation What were the odds he was not going to play And I finally bailed at the 20% mark when HP was congratulating himself during a sex scene on his incredible prowess As his partner whimpers that she s about to finish But, he didn t give a damn Because he was the King of Fucking, the Prince of Penetration, the Ayatollah of Fuck n Rolla Again, the word juvenile comes to mind I am very clearly not the intended reader for this book If you re going to brave this one, read the sample first I wish I had

    11 2 Swedish Danish stories are over running our screens and pages You can hardly look at a tv trailer or check out the new releases without coming across something from Denmark or Sweden Not that I m complaining, without them I would have missed out on great tv like The Bridge and The Killing or fantastic books like Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Game That s right, 62 pages in and I m already calling it fantastic It s half gamer techno thriller, half crime drama at least so far.I l 11 2 Swedish Danish stories are over running our screens and pages You can hardly look at a tv trailer or check out the new releases without coming across something from Denmark or Sweden Not that I m complaining, without them I would have missed out on great tv like The Bridge and The Killing or fantastic books like Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Game That s right, 62 pages in and I m already calling it fantastic It s half gamer techno thriller, half crime drama at least so far.I like Rebecca a lotthan HP at the moment because every time I read an HP scene I get the feeling that his next assignment will involve committing violence or even murder against another person and his punishment for failing to complete the assignment which is what I assume would happen, at least the first time is sure to be dreadful pain and suffering of himself or someone he loves his sister Rebecca, for example The scene where Rebecca is doing some personal defence training with her alpha group teammates and is caught in a suffocating headlock, but manages to harness her panic into an explosive attack, resulting in her attacking teammate down on the floor with a broken nose gushing blood was very satisfying for one of those girls whose only weapon is her nails I was especially triumphant when the instructor praised her and basically told her teammate to suck it up It reminded me of a scene in the Buffy episode, Phases, the one where Oz first finds out he s a werewolf and Larry admits to Xander that he s gay There s a scene in that episode where everyone is in gym class and they are paired up in order for the girls to practice self defence Cordelia and Xander, Willow and Oz, and unfortunately for Buffy she s paired with Larry Willow has been warning Buffy that she has to actlike a girly girl who can t kick vampires over the fence, and, to begin with Buffy attempts to remember this Larry doesn t make this easy, as he makes lewd comments and sexual innuendos out of the feeble grunts Buffy emits as she attempts to flip him over her shoulder, as the teacher is instructing the girls to do In the end Buffy s had enough and oops, there he goes flying through the air to land flat on his back Willow gives Buffy an exasperated look, but all the girls and some guys, too at home I m sure were going Take that _______ any boy who made life difficult during school Both great scenes of girls being underestimated because of their physical size I love a strong female lead who blasts the chauvinistic opinions of her male counterparts apart by saving them beating them in a physical competition To be continued22 3 I ve really been looking forward to getting back to this after my forced intermission due to library due dates and fines I considered reading back over my own review to re familiarise myself with where I was up to in the plot, but then I forgot It didn t matter though, because as soon as I found the page I was up to it and started reading it all came rushing back I meant to say this earlier in my review, but I forgot I don t like the cover image on my copy of the book The woman playing Rebecca is fine, possiblymodel like, less ass kicking security officer like than I would ve imagined, but HP has a slightly suave, artfully mussed look that is nothing like the way he s described in the book In my head I ve been seeing a cross between Seth Rogen, Michael Cena, and Jesse Eisenberg A bit bumbling, not fit but not fat , actually scruffy rather than artfully mussed, just not well put together The cover model looks like what he is, a model very handsome, actually, a cross between Ryan Reynolds and Jonny Lee Miller when he s doing the unshaved look , when he should have looked a bit unkempt, a few cheeseburgers away from dumpy He should be wearing slightly ratty clothes grey hoodie, worn black jeans, scuffed white sneakers, t shirt with some kind of disaffected youth slogan on it , not designer jeans and leather jacket and an over priced plain black t shirt, HP is not that smooth To be continued23 3 God HP is dense How many times and in how many ways does Erman have to say it before the truth sinks through HP s thick skull The Game is using him He didn t choose to play The Game, The Game chose him to play.Also, not a big fan of the way the story cuts from HP to Rebecca and back again for no apparent reason It s not like each interjection into HP s story takes us to breaking news in Rebecca s life or that there s some immediately obvious connection between those exact moments in Rebecca and his lives The interjections seem to happen at random moments and take us to mostly irrelevant at least to what s happening to HP events Maybe the connections will become clear later, but at the moment they re just confusing and disturbing to the flow of the main plot HP s To be continuedLater that night On page 215 HP says that he can believe that he was tricked into taking part in The Game, and that bored rich guys were betting on him for their entertainment but he can t believe that it s being played all around the world, that jobs can be contracted out through The Game and that there are players in every walk of life, that anyone might be an ant sent to watch him HIs refusal in the face of good evidence to believe what s right in front of his face just screams of stupidity, to me His apartment s been set on fire, Manga Farook s work place was set on fire and the whole thing would have been filmed if the police hadn t coincidentally been just around the corner to respond to the emergency call and scare off the arsonists, he s come to the conclusion on his own that he was set up at the bridge due to his personal belongings being planted at the scene of the crime, he was hunted down by some kind of light aircraft and nearly killed out in the middle of nowhere, when the only thing that knew where he was going was Google Looking at that damning pile of evidence how can HP continue to shut his eyes and stick his head in the sand The Game is a giant, multi country, multi million maybe even multi billion dollar business with its fingers in a lot of different pies It has people available to hire for all kinds of jobs no job is too big or too small bank robbery, intimidation, arson, grand theft auto, impersonation, even assassination Whatever you need they ll handle it, as long as you can pay I believe it and no one s tried to mow me down with light aircraft today To be continuedEven later that night actually, really early the next morning All through the last few chapters I ve been making snarky comments at HP s idiotic response to the events going on around him If I was an updater and had the laptop handy currently sitting up in bed, reading, which is where I do my best reading I would be sniping at that idiot with every other sentence He just saw the view spoiler report about Erman s likely incineration on the hide spoiler news and I was like Are you scared now Do you now understand that The Game is dangerous Yes, you fool, view spoiler you re the one who got Erman killed If he hadn t agreed to see you and help you he would most likely still be alive hide spoiler Do you still think he s crazy, or is what he said starting to make a bitsense I also said Duh a lot and rolled my eyes frequently I just want to say a blanket DUH to all the conclusions HP is finally coming to the same ones I came to about 200 pages ago Everything he thinks is stupid and it seems to be making me stupid because the only word I can come up with as I read is Duh So, I hope if I throw out a giant blanket of Duh it ll be out of my system and I ll go back to my normal level of intelligence when writing reviews above average, if I can say that without sounding boastful.Only a few pages later After that Duh dump intelligence immediately came flooding back, prompting me to wonder if view spoiler Erman s cabin fire really was the work of The Game Maybe Erman lit it himself in order to once again become invisible As long as he had plenty of cash, a vehicle and somewhere to go he could easily drop right back off the map, never to be seen again no way he s gonna trust anyone again after his attempt to help a friend of a friend put his life in danger They haven t found a body yet, and even if they did it could be a plant to throw investigators off the scent I wouldn t put it past a man as paranoid as Erman to have a body skeleton double hanging around just in case the shit hit the fan and he had to get away clean only works if they think you re dead hide spoiler.Page 221 perfectly ordinary office building well what the hell did you think it was going to be A casino with Play The Game here in neon lights They re trying to be inconspicuous, so it s not likely they would want records of anything to do with the real business that goes on inside showing up on a Google search If I was going to hide The Game s head offices I would go with a medical supply warehouse that really does hold and ship out medical supplies, at least that s what you d see if you went in the front door but if you went round the back you would find banks of computers with people tracking bets, jobs for players, player payments, etc If you re going to have a front for an illegal operation you need to have something real, not something that just looks good on paper When the inspectors show up and they will, they always do you can show them that you are exactly what your tax return says you are a medical supply warehouse To be continued24 3 Only 65 pages to go, I m definitely gonna to finish this tonight Yay I can t wait to see how it all ends, except it s not really ending because Game is only the first book in a trilogy So really, I should be saying, I can t wait to see what questions are left unanswered, if there s a heart pounding cliff hanger where we re not sure if someone will live or die One thing I am very curious about is the identity of the person s leaving notes in Rebecca s locker at work and now calling her home phone, letting the answering machine pick up, but not leaving a message Leaving Rebecca to come home to numerous messages that all turn out to be hang ups Almost as creepy as hang ups or mouth breathers in the middle of night I hope we get further clues about that mystery before the end of the book I m getting a little tired of HP s voice with all his excuses for why he still wants to continue playing The Game, despite the damage it s done to his friend s and family s lives selfish fool , so Rebecca s become muchinteresting and sympathetic to listen to To be continuedLater that night Great ending, very edge of your seat reading although there was no real cliff hanger of is he she going to live or die The mystery behind the notes and the work day hang ups was solved and you ll never guess how it comes out I m the queen of wild theories and this one didn t even cross my mind The final twist in the tale I love it when that happens, a shocker is revealed in the last sentences of the book, like in Scream 4, the one with Emma Roberts, I had no idea who the real killer was until they were revealed and I actually said Oh They re the one out loud in the cinema, to the embarrassed horror of my friends Can t WAIT for the next book to be available at the library

    On its GameGame is the first book in the Game Trilogy by Swedish author Anders De La Motte and wow what an introduction to the series The whole premise of the book a game seems that brings in all sections of society that is a secret but with public ramifications, it seems like a crazy plot that could actually happen in a computer game, the problem is this is no computer game that just gives the instructions It may sound a bit out of the box but enough to be real and happening as we read.Henrik On its GameGame is the first book in the Game Trilogy by Swedish author Anders De La Motte and wow what an introduction to the series The whole premise of the book a game seems that brings in all sections of society that is a secret but with public ramifications, it seems like a crazy plot that could actually happen in a computer game, the problem is this is no computer game that just gives the instructions It may sound a bit out of the box but enough to be real and happening as we read.Henrik Pettersson better known to family and friends as HP has a criminal record is bright but also quite lazy, and is on the train home with a hangover when he notices that a phone has been left behind The game starts when he picks up the phone and answers the message that has given him an easy challenge He completes that task and it gives him a buzz, little does he know how far he will fall and how much his life could be in danger As he goes he does not know who the Game Master is and who are the worker Ants, but who can he trust but at least he has his sister.Rebecca is a police officer and is working the body guard unit and is often bailing her brother HP out of all his scrapes but she does owe him It is not until that their paths cross during the game does she realise how much trouble her brother is in Once again as the big sister she tries to help him out, but that will cost her At least she knows of all his friends he can trust Farook and he will tell her what is going on with HP HP goes after the Game Master and has to enter his layer or so HP thinks, but there will be a cost He again has to put himself in danger to achieve his target but what will happen next he does not know but one thing he is sure of is that he will have to get out of Sweden and live a low tech life in the hope he can stay alive He has seen already what has happened to others who have played the game and ended up losing and he doesn t want to be the next one To find out what happens next leads us nicely into Buzz the next in the trilogy I cannot wait good job I have a copy to read

    Mwah, goed boek, ondanks het feit dat crime niet echt mijn ding is Super geschreven, ook al was het soms een beetje onduidelijk en langdradig Een puntje van kritiek het verhaal speelt zich in Zweden af, waardoor alle straatnamen vreselijk lang en ingewikkeld zijn bijv Kymlingel nken of Torshamnsgatan , wat je echt 10 seconden daarna weer vergeten bent Je ori ntatie wordt er zo niet beter op
