The Eye of Minds by James Dashner****

The Eye of Minds is about Michael, a gamer in the world of VirtNet. He always has a good time with people who he has never met. Then a  problem occurs; it's one of the biggest terrorist threats to the VirtNet ever imagined. People can be trapped inside, and when they die in the VirtNet, they die for real. Can Michael and his friends save the VirtNet?

I think that the author did a really good job of having a catchy intro. He opened up with a situation that you have to keep reading about. At first it makes it seem like real life, but then you learn it's a video game. Then the character tells you that she can't escape. It clutches you, and won't let you go. You have to keep reading. I also liked how the author didn't make Michael be super-human in the VirtNet. In fact, Michael seemed to be the weakest out of his group of friends. I think that sci-fi lovers would really enjoy this book.
