Genius:the game by Leopoldo Gout review~ Kami


I went into this book thinking that it would remind me of Ready Player One and I was right, it did.  It reminded me of it because this book is also about a young computer genius. In Ready Player One the protagonist is a gamer, in this book the protagonists are a technical engineer, computer programmer/hacker/coder and an activist. The high school student Rex is a brilliant computer programmer and he and his friends are on the run, presumably from the government or some worse kind of entity, in the beginning of the book. Hacktivism and genius, the revolution has begun.  The book starts out with the three main characters meeting for a competition of genius.  The contestants are young techie prodigies. The writing is really good, the story is fast paced and the characters are likeable. A SciFi techie young adult adventure. I enjoyed it a lot. 4 stars
