Read full description of the books Игра:This is the best VRMMO story i've read, certainly better than the later books of the Alterworld series. Since the vrmmo sub-genre is a staple of eastern fantasy, this book blends some of better points of both western and eastern fantasy.
Synopsis is a guy is quasi-tricked (we don't know if the 'tricker' does it deliberately or not) into hacking a public utility and gets sentenced to prison, the term to be served sweat shop style making virtual objects in the monopoly virtual world.
The vr prison system for non-violent prisoners quickly shows its darker elements within the game constraints and the MC needs to powerup and make allies within this environment. The overall thrust is toward earning a (big) threshold of (what ammounts to) good-will points with the prison system AI / overseer. The satisfaction of which allows prisoners out of the "prison world" into the "general world" (remembering that 40% of the population at large plays the game) in a probation type fashion.
It's all quite cleverly done, the MCs actions read as clever and thought out without relying on luck etc. The rational for both the crime and the prison system is convincing. The game mechanics are extremely good. This is a solid addition to a fledgling (in the west at least) sub-genre and will hopefully lead to more books within it, both from this author and others.
