My Review

5 of 5 The Game

The Game is a great book to read. I have to say that reality TV has taken over Americans. We live to see people act a fool and carry on. Some of those reality TV shows are to much though. It makes you wonder whether or not they are scripted or people are just that crazy. The Game is no different. 

Candice have a great life, job and boyfriend until one day she gets a call. The caller wants her to play the game but Candice is not interested in playing any game. But the game has something else in mind for Candice. If she will not do it willingly then they will force her to play and they start taking everything from her. They take her family, friends and her boyfriend and even her job. With no other options she is left with no other choice but to comply.

Just as Candice is trying to figure out things she meets this mysterious boy who wants to help her. Candice keeps wondering why he is helping her out and most importantly who is he? But things are not always as they seem and the mysterious boy does not know who he is or why he is helping out Candice but he knows it feels right. Vince knows that he has to help out Candice and he will stop at nothing to help her out. 

What is going to happen to Candice and Vince? Will Candice make it out of the game alive or dead? Who is Vince? Where did he come from? This story will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to read faster to see what happens next. This story is also kind of scary because it could happen in real life and that is just down right frightening.
