The book Z by Michael Thomas Ford centers around a teenage boy named Josh in the year 2038. He loves torching zombies in his holographic video games, an obsession he can’t brush aside. Charlie, one of the best players in the game, makes an offer too good to be true – to join the In Real Life games and torch the zombies for real. Josh accepts, ignorant to the web he entangles himself him. The zombies are real, their lives are actually at stake, players are dying, and the mysterious drug named Z has a cost that’s anything but monetary.
This book was a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that kept on the edge. I enjoyed the non-stop action, and the overall plot of the book. It was an interesting read, different from the book I usually read. The subplots of friendship and love contributed to the main plot of the book – the game. I enjoyed reading it and recommend this book to anyone who likes action.
