Unlike to main character in this books, I am not obsessed with video games/computers games. However, ocassionally I do enjoy a fighting game and I was able to like the book because of this. The fault I found with this book is there was always a wall between RL (real life) and VT (Versus Town) where the game is played. This makes sense--reality is reality and a game is a game--but any connections that existed between RL and VT were merely hinted at and were mostly ignored by the main character. Exploring those connections would have made the store more interesting.

While I liked the book, the best part is the side story at the end. Particularly because it included a more solid connection between RL and VT. This side story is from a different POV--a more interesting POV than the main character's POV.
