    If we can make Virtual worlds and their relationships so totally lifelike, attractive and immersive might we not wish to stay there I love the world within a world genre I find it fascinating Add in some sci fi, a mystery, and London its surrounds, and you nearly always have me hooked Follow Me offered all of these in spades The book opens with a mystery what happened to Andrew Daunt The Golden Child of the Daunt Family and his entire corner of the world, come to If we can make Virtual worlds and their relationships so totally lifelike, attractive and immersive might we not wish to stay there I love the world within a world genre I find it fascinating Add in some sci fi, a mystery, and London its surrounds, and you nearly always have me hooked Follow Me offered all of these in spades The book opens with a mystery what happened to Andrew Daunt The Golden Child of the Daunt Family and his entire corner of the world, come to think of it , Andrew goes missing on his brother s birthday and his brother, Chris, simply cannot come to terms with it In an attempt to deal with this out of the blue, world rocking loss, Chris digs into Andrew s room and his computer Things quickly take a turn for the very interesting as a result The family drama in this one felt a bit overdrawn and off on occasion Perhaps it s not I m fortunate enough that I ve never had to deal with an out of the blue world rocking loss, and maybe this is exactly how people act I can certainly see where a family could fall apart in such times, but the emotional response of each of the remaining Daunts sometimes felt a little forced, like the drama was escalating because of the book, rather than because of the things happening in the book if that makes any sense it s a little meta as far as explanations, but that s apropros because so much of the book is in fact rather meta Where the book really shone for me was in Chris s back and forth between worlds as he tries to figure out what in the worlds is going on and where his brother might be Zaronda and London are a great offset for each other Chris has the opportunity to create his own identity in the former a task he seems at sixes and sevens with in the latter, largely because he s always felt overshadowed by Andrew The tension that builds within him, as he tries to balance his dual experiences, is pretty well managed At times, it explodes out of him in rage and frustration but those explosions felt genuine and, weirdly, made himlikeable to me because they made himindividually human, rather than just a shadow of hisfamous brother.As Chris discovers and explores , the story develops nicely into a non traditional whodunit that I found engaging and very fun to read The supporting cast particularly Philippa was helpful in keeping the story moving, but mainly served as obstacles assistants for Chris I would have liked to see a littledevelopment of individual personalities and motivations there again, particularly of Philippa I think it would have helped make the family dynamic feel less forced at times if we understood a bitabout Guy and Eileen Daunts as people, rather than just as Andrew and Chris s parents Ditto Philippa why did this woman follow Chris so readily, buying into everything he was telling her and continuing to work the case long after she should It felt like there must have been some personal history backstory that would explain it, but it s never provided These aren t huge issues, don t get me wrong this was a great find and a very easy and enjoyable read They are just the few questions issues I ran into in what was generally a really cool story.My review copy was provided by NetGalley

    Fall this way into a world of your imagination Almost an Alice in Wonderland parody for our young friend Chris, whose world is shattered with the mysterious disappearance of his older brother, vanishing without a trace and leaving the young lad to figure out what happened There s quite an adventure ahead for Chris as he must follow an unusual path within another world, whilst hiding from parents with no understanding of what he must, or will do, to find the path which might, maybe, but possibl Fall this way into a world of your imagination Almost an Alice in Wonderland parody for our young friend Chris, whose world is shattered with the mysterious disappearance of his older brother, vanishing without a trace and leaving the young lad to figure out what happened There s quite an adventure ahead for Chris as he must follow an unusual path within another world, whilst hiding from parents with no understanding of what he must, or will do, to find the path which might, maybe, but possibly not, lead to his brother The book is a well written piece of almost gaming adventure, putting together the new or not so new ideas of Artificial intelligence, Virtual Reality and the utopia of The Singularity , while still finding ways of weaving the normal trials of the daily life of a 15 year old boy in and out through a questionable quest The Author has the uncanny ability to keep the whole storyline fast paced and interesting, yet still falling within the realms of reality of our modern day world, So easy to read and comprehend I would hope that there might, someday be, a whole new adventure for the 2 brothers, so they can push the boundaries of their computer world even further.A review copy was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
