I have to say that this is the first book by James Dashner that I have ever read, and what a book it is. The Eye of Minds drew me in by the synopsis alone, and then with the amazing cover. My review may be slightly vague as I don't want to give away too much of the plot and what happens.
The Eye of Minds is set in a futuristic world where people spend a lot of time on VirtNet, a virtual world. Michael's goal is to get to the top levels in Lifeblood where everything is even more real and intense. With the help of two friends, Sarah and Bryson, they work together to try to get there. However their plans are interrupted when they are
The Eye of Minds is impossible to put down, and the further I got into the book the deeper the mystery went, and the higher the stakes. Each new chapter drew me into the worlds even more and it made it even harder to put it down. I love the world created in this book, in fact all the multiple worlds, having to keep these game worlds, inside a virtual world, inside a human world is no easy feat, yet James makes them fit perfectly together and each time they entered the virtual world it was a natural progression.
The Eye of Minds has a perfectly paced plot, story development, and character development and I quickly found myself becoming attached to them, wanting them to keep fighting and keep going. Each time something happened to the characters I wanted them to come back fighting even harder.
The Eye of Minds has twists and turns that I never expected, yet each new one only added to the story, rather than taking away from it or making it to busy. The ending was a complete shock, I was left speechless, it was something that hadn't even crossed my mind. I am really looking forward to next book in the series.
