This is one of those stories that grabs on and doesn't let go. From the very first page, it engages the reader with its quick pacing and unique storyline.
What I enjoyed the most was the way the characters related to each other. Their relationships, some which stayed the same, some which changed as the novel progressed, were nicely written, in a way that made them feel authentic. Something else that caught my eye was the way the "villains" were handled. In so many stories the antagonists are portrayed as one-dimensional, almost psychotic, but in this novel, you could see that the author really gave them some thought. He made them into interesting, complex characters in their own right.
The plot is wholly unique and I won't say too much about it because there are many ways in which I could spoil it for other people. It's a young adult novel that has mostly male characters, which make it completely different form the majority of the ones out there at the moment, adding to that uniqueness. All you need to know just is that you will be surprised and you will be anxious to find out how it ends. What else can you ask from an adventure book? Besides,
This is one I have no problem recommending for both YA readers and adults.

I liked this, but I read it quickly and carelessly to get to all of the reveals and resolutions. The characters are fine, work perfectly well to power the story, and are engaging as the tale unfolds. But, at least to me, no character was particularly distinguished and none of the writing impressed me enough to be memorable. That's O.K., because I don't think that's even what the author was trying for.

Rather, this is a twisty dystopian tale with lots of secrets that are revealed slowly, and twists that confound expectations. The clues, the red herrings, and especially the use of other books' plots to disguise or add additional meaning to this book's surprises, worked well and gave rise to an entertaining and satisfying read. This seemed to me to complement books like The Maze Runner (Book 1), which I also liked, in that it offered a creepy environment, a why-am-I-here vibe, and purposeful, (as opposed to just running around or chasing), action.

And, this book does sidle up to questions about identity, consciousness, virtual reality technology, AI and the like. Blending those aspects into the story without beating them to death or getting all philosophical and obscure was the way to go and to me the author struck the right balance.

So, a good mystery, some virtual reality thrills, a restrained authorial touch - this was a very satisfying and entertaining read.

Please note that I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

I was confused at the beginning of this book. Not in a bad way; I wasn't frustrated or uninterested in what was going on, but I spent the first couple chapters thinking "What is going on here?". It took a little while to get my bearings in this story. I felt kind of tossed into the middle of a conspiracy. Since I've finished the book, I am pretty sure I was.

Bertauski has painted a very interesting picture. All kinds of comparisons floated through my mind as I read this story: Neverland, Pleasure Island, The Matrix, that island from "Lord of the Flies"... However, Foreverland does have a flavor of its own.

I enjoyed Danny's journey and although the beginning of the book was disorienting, I like the direction it took. I wasn't prepared for the way the plot was structured, but I think that's why I liked it. Once I had my bearings, I raced through most of the book. To me, it was quite obvious that something hinky was going on as soon as it became apparent that Danny wasn't the only guy with a hole in his forehead and a suspicious lump in his back. Things pulled together wonderfully. I was glad that while I guessed right, it was more complicated than I thought, and the results of the actions taken in the book made for an interesting and satisfying conclusion.

Fantastic YA dystopia! I don't know why I hadn't heard of either this series or the author before, as this is a must read for fans of the genre. I can't really talk about the plot as it is slowly revealed as the book moves forward. We do have a group of boys on a deserted island, their memories have been wiped clean and inserted with many conflicting false memories. They get to do what they want most of the time except they must play video game tournaments and go to classes which are pure discussion, no tests or paperwork. Sounds fun, right? They even get to go to Foreverland where the impossible can happen. But getting to Foreverland is a nightmare. It's an interesting, exciting and somewhat frightening world they live in as the reader along with a couple of rogue boys tries to figure out what it going on. I pretty much guessed by the middle of the book but only the basic concept there were many more secrets to be revealed right up to the end.The writing is great, teen dialogue is realistic. Both the suspense and the pure curiosity of what the heck was going on had me turning pages all day long into the wee hours of the night. Unfortunately, sleep overtook me and I had to read the final 10% as soon as I woke up. I've already added the sequel to my line-up of future tbrs.
