Summary

SG- Suicide Game is a metaphor about the society where persons almost kill themselves to achieve their goals and forget their dreams, but, in the book you will find also real love, friendship, loyalty, hope and an unexpected finale showing the good essence of the human seed.

Eight thousand candidates sign up for the Suicide Game. Only one can win. Their destination is the Night Stadium: a place of makeup and music, fear and adrenaline, blood and romance, celebration and death. Each candidate has his or her own reason for entering the Game.

The Council runs the Game. The outcome of the Game is left to fate…in the laps of the gods. The candidates will jump to their deaths in order to win everything, before capacity crowds in the Stadium. The public follows every jump, live on TV and mobile device screens, choosing their favorite candidates and betting on their lives. Who will win the game?
Candidate 0907 – Moma – the terrorist?
Candidate 1518 – Fabio Giovanni Cristiani – the cyclist?
Candidate 3507 – Anthony Henrik Gustav – the lawyer?
Candidate 4914 – Jens Plaato – the politician?
Candidate 4918 – Sarah Mondstein – the career woman?
Candidate 5151 – Bianca White – just a girl ?
Candidate 7195 – The Scientist?
…Or is it a completely different Candidate?

The Game’s community also includes geeks, mafia, makeup artists, master chefs, models, musicians, spies, terrorists, and many others.
It boldly imagines a place where death and denial are interwoven with hope, choices and the innate desire for happiness. Impressive in the totality of its vision, it is an exploration of the best and worst things in our lives, our nightmares, and especially our dreams.

 

My review

3/5 Stars

An interesting take on the rat race of life, this thriller introduces the idea of the “Suicide Game.” An event in which 8000 participants volunteer to risk their lives to be the one left standing. The book introduces us to the top 7 participants and gives us their own individual reasons for attending the game. Both breathtaking and unbelievable, this book very much captures the pain of ambition and paints it very well in a variety of ways.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
