First, I do not play any MMORPGs. No Second Life. No World of Warcraft. But I really enjoyed this book. In a nutshell, Eric lives in a world where violence has been eradicated. All disputes, legal and otherwise, are settled in the online game Epic. How well you play the game dictates your position in real life, whether your town will receive solar panels or not, for example. However, Epic is just a means for the oligarchy to subjugate its people, and when Eric and his friends take on the players who control Epic, they risk losing more than their character's lives.

Great Sci-fi story with fantasy elements. Is one of my top 10 picks of the year.
