Status: The Game by Vincent Robert Annunziato is an exciting story, original in its concept with a great story line. Bob Brooks is an inexperienced high school teacher who becomes popular with his students with the help of an online game. Bob Brooks has an ulterior motive of becoming rich too, but he finds that it is not going to be easy. The game Status is a dangerous online game, but it might make you famous. Now who wants to play this game?
The plot is exhilarating and it targets an audience of all age groups. Bob's character as that of an Technology teacher and a gamer is relatable and the original story line will have readers hooked on the book. The story is a bit slow initially and then it becomes interesting. It is a perfect plot for the age we live in where children as well as adults are hooked on online gaming. It is indeed a refreshing idea to use this theme as the story line. I just fell in love with the plot and the characters. The hazards of technology and online gaming, and the harm that it causes have been captured by the author. Status is a book that tells us about what is going to come as we live in a world filled with technology and social websites. It teaches us a good lesson and I am sure readers will want to read the sequel when it comes out.
