It's an entertaining romp through the world of the ARG. Likeable characters, interesting situations, but there are points where the plot goes 'whu?' and you wonder why stuff is taking so long. Bit like in Harry Potter and the Endless Camping, where H, R & H spend *weeks* bumming around in tents rather than, you know, doing something useful. That said, I quite enjoyed it, polished it off in a couple of days. If you want a really good book (or books) on games, look no further than Larry Niven & Stephen Barnes superb Barsoom Series - Dream Park, The Barsoom Project, and The California Voodoo Game. All of which are brilliant.
