This was fine. I went into this knowing nothing about it. My library had it available and the summary seemed interesting. I didn't even realize that this was based on a podcast until after I started reading. I did listen to the podcast while I was reading to get a better sense of the source material. Overall I found this to be entertaining but flawed in a way that started to bother me more and more as the story went on.

I think the best thing about this book is there are a lot of interesting ideas and that does keep you reading. Even when I was frustrated with certain parts of this book, I never wanted to put it down. I really like sci-fi and speculative books and this had a lot of the tropes of books I enjoy in that genre. I think the first fourth of the story is especially good and really enjoyable to read.

One issue I did start to have as I went on in the book is that it did start to feel like a bunch of events that were barely connected. The nature of the story does kind of call for that type of story but the problem was that many of them were never revisited or they left no emotional impact so they ended up feeling superfluous. This was made especially true by the repetition of some elements of the story. This book is nearly 450 pages and it did feel like additional editing to tighten the story would have improved this a lot.

The issue of emotional impact was a big one for me. Several times in this book, something really bad happens to the characters and we just move on. It made it feel like the main characters didn't care about anything and that made me not care. Sometimes we will be told that the characters cared, but we wouldn't be shown it. It made the stakes feel a lot lower, which is not good with this type of story where it's trying to set up extremely high stakes.

I'm usually not one to complain about telling and not showing because I don't thinks always the best advice. But I did think it became kind of a problem here. There was one section that had this quote.

The Magician’s warning was sobering. His had been by far the most knowledgeable and encouraging voice when it came to the game.
This is 35% through the book at this point. We know who the Magician is and that he's the authority on the game. We were shown that already. This is the kind of repetition that started to really grate on me. I just felt like the author didn't really trust his readers or, he's used to podcast writing and didn't adjust super well. Since I listened to the podcast at the same time, I did notice that certain introductions or descriptions in the book were almost identical to the podcast. I do think this story worked better as a podcast but I do think a lot of these problems could have been fixed with just a bit more editing.

This book definitely leaves a lot of unanswered questions. The ending isn't bad, but I definitely wasn't fully satisfied. The reason I can still give this three stars rather than something lower is because I was still entertained by most of the story. Having now both read the book and listened to the podcast, I will say there's not a lot of additional world-building in the book that isn't in the podcast, so if you're looking for more of that, you might not be satisfied. I would say that if your interested in this and haven't listened to the podcast, you should wait to listen until after finishing the book. I think a lot of people will be entertained by this and I would still say go ahead and read this if it seems interesting but maybe keep in mind some of the issues I pointed out. ( )

2021 books #58. 2021. A mysterious real-world game called Rabbits, may or may not be real. But if it isn't won by someone the universe will end. The protagonist seems to have a serious mental illness and believes he won. Poorly written dialog. I didn't really like this. ( )

A cross between Blake Crouch and Ready Player One. Conspiracy theories, pop culture, gaming culture, and flat out weirdness. So much fun! ( )

I am not a gamer, neither have I listened to the RABBITS podcast, I am nonetheless instantly gravitated to the mystery and intricate matrix of this sinister underground alternate reality game! Oftentimes, I’m chilled to the bone and my nerves are on edge constantly!
With his unlimited imagination and his extraordinary gaming mind, Terry Miles has masterfully crafted this highly dangerous and extremely complicated techno-thriller RABBITS that will take one on a high-octane, twisty and heart-pounding ride!
I would like to thank Del Rey / Penguin Random House and NetGalley for this thrilling ride!
