The Eye of Minds

Title: The Eye of Minds
Author: James Dashner
Rating: 5/5

Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?

But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.

The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker. And they’they've been watching Michael. They want him on their team. But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.

My Review:
Alright so at first this book was hard to get into but once into the story it moved pretty quick. What an interesting concept that I loved. The ending... nice ending. Now to wait for book 2- which is the worse part of reading- right guys :) So as you can tell I loved this book- I think this series will be better than the Maze Runner books- which says a lot since those were so good too!
