Review #31 - Virtually Dead - Peter May

Virtually dead has an excellent, suspenseful plot that includes many twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats throughout most of the book. The characters and setting are described in vivid detail and the transitions made from a virtual world to the real world could pose a serious problem for a writer, but are excellently conveyed here. This story has abundant references to the online virtual reality world, Second Life, and can be quite confusing since it can be hard to follow the numerous activities, vernacular and references mentioned within, and even a bit boring for readers who are not as familiar with this virtual game. However, if you are a fan of virtual reality games or if you enjoy suspense novels and are interested in reading about the psychological aspects that this novel touches upon with regards to the virtual world versus the real world, I would definitely recommend reading this.
