Eve 2.0 Blog Tour
Welcome to the Teachers Who Read blog! Today we're featuring Eve 2.0, a new gaming novel sure to appeal to fans of Ready Player One or anyone who likes to game!
Synopsis:Just when Gwen thought she could beat any video game hands down, her boyfriend goes and gets her stuck in a top-secret government simulator named Eve 2.0. Being trapped within a couple of her favorite video games doesn’t seem so bad at first, but as time becomes a factor and the A.I. program begins to get smarter, Gwen soon realizes that winning or losing isn’t just about pride anymore; it’s about making it out alive.
My Take:Can you imagine being stuck in a video game? Some kids dream of that. In fact, 10-year-old me would've given anything to play a real-life version of Super Mario. And given that gaming is anticipated to be a 230 billion market by 2022 (New Zoo), I bet there's a few students you know who would appreciate this gaming novel.
The first in a series, Eve 2.0 features suspense, government conspiracies, and even a love triangle. As Gwen and her ex-boyfriend(!) navigate the gaming world in order to rescue her brother, people in the real world realize Gwen may reveal government secrets.
While I don't consider myself to be a gamer, other than the occasional game of The SIMS, this book was easy to follow. You don't have to be an avid gamer to appreciate the story arcs.
