Virtual World is by far the best book I have ever read. I've read "All Quiet On The Western Front", "A Tale of Two Cities", name it. But when my mom got this book out of the library for me, I couldn't stop reading it. Two hours and fifteen minutes later, I called the library and told them I lost it. I paid the fee, afraid I wouldn't be able to find it in stores. I don't know a lot about computers, I don't even like video games, really, but this book was so REAL that it blew me away. The plot twists leave you wide eyed and softly cursing the fact that you haven't read this book before. I won't give away much of the story except that it is somewhat similar to the movie "The Matrix", but on a higher, riskier level. You simply cannot afford to miss this book. I would recommend it for those 14 or older, though. What are you waiting for? Go buy it from Amazon!!

Virtual World is a story that details a new, high-tech game that has been occupying teenager's lives around the world. The game, called Silicon Sphere, is the newest game released, and all of the gaming magazines gave it raving reviews. The novel seems to be set some time in the future, for it talks about advanced virtual reality (VR) games.

Silicon Sphere is something else, because as the characters play their (pirated) copy, they find that they are literally becoming part of the game. They stop looking at a screen and moving a mouse and start actually moving around the world and picking up objects with their hands.

The novel progresses well, and the different characters are beliveable and realistic. However, the ending spoiled the entire book.

As I drew near to the end, I was expecting there to be some sort of closure, but it seemed to just stop. I actually checked the number of pages with this website to make sure that I hadn't gotten a copy that had pages missing! There is no clear ending to the story, and you are left wondering what happened to some of the main characters!

If the book had been more definate with the ending, it would've received five stars, but after not knowing what happened, I felt negative towards the entire book.

I think this book is just OK for someone who dislikes reading. I read this book for an English project. I don't regret choosing this book because it turned out to be fine.
This story begins with a boy called Jack playing a Virtual Reality game. Jack and his friend Kyle both love VR games, so they are aware of a new game that has just been released. Jack and Kyle go to Roy McKee's house for a download of this new game. When Roy opens an e-mail from his friend Greg, who had this game. When Roy asks Greg if he could upload the game to him, the username is lost, and the only error that appears on Roy's PC was "user unknown". After this, Roy e-mailed Billy, someone he knew from the net, asking him if he knew what had happens to Greg. Billy responded that he knew nothing about Greg. He had called him by phone and e-mailed him but he never was there. Billy didn't know anything about "user unknown."
Kyle disappears after he managed to download Silicon Sphere. Jack didn't worry much about it He thought Kyle had gotten addicted to the game, and that was why he missed school, and didn't return the calls. One day Jack went to Kyle's house and he wasn't there, in that moment Jack started to get worried.
The next day, a girl called Kate sat next to him on the school bus. Kate started talking to Jack about the mysterious disappearance of children all over the world, and that is when Jack tells her about Kyle's disappearance.
Both of them start talking and they become friends. The next day, they both agree that it all has a connection with the Silicon Sphere game. What will happen to Jack?? What about Kyle??? Read this book to find out this and more.
I really thought this was an OK book, however I only picked it to have something to do my book report. I guess someone who enjoys reading and knows a little about computers and the Internet will definitely like this book a lot. I think this author took a lot of time explaining some scenes of the game and all. This book didn't have too much explanation, nor too little, it had just the right amount, so that you don't get bored, and don't get confused.

This book is AWESOME! , If you've evered played a video game that's had you hooked then pick up this book. I'm a hardcore gamer and most of the time I'd rather be mastering the latest video game than reading a book. But not the case with "Virtual World", it was as if I was playing Silicon Sphere along side Jack, Roy, and Kyle. Believe me it's time for you to....
PUT DOWN YOUR JOYSTICK AND PICK UP THIS BOOK !
