From James Dashner, the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, comes an all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure. The Eye of Minds is the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares. Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team. But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.

Apparently James Dashner and I just don't get along. I'm sure he's a perfectly nice guy. I just don't love his books. The Eye of Minds (which is a completely meaningless title, as far as I can tell) was hard to read, full of boring characters, and shoved a weird plot down your throat. It was...
Interesting characters. Decent plotline. Nothing much to say without spoiling anything else. I like the world that Dashner built, but that doesn't mean I enjoyed reading the novel. The amount of action scenes eventually become borderline pointless, and the author pretty much info dumped about a char...
Reseña completa en Atrapado en la lecturaPor si no captaron nada de mi reseña... AMÉ el libro. Ayer charlando con Estefi y el resto de chicos, nos preguntó: ¿Mejor que Maze Runner? Y yo le dije: No, nada aue ver. Hoy, ya luego de haber leído todo el resto que me faltaba, puedo afirmar algo distinto....
Kindly skip the sentences that were underlined as they will contain spoilers.Before I get into the review of the novel, I'd like to point out that I was expecting this to be a bad rip off of Ready Player One. RPO's one of my favorite novels, so I had mountain high expectations for The Eye of Minds...
Though you'll see I'm giving this book a rather low rating, that's not to say I'm not a James Dashner fan. I loved Dashner's Maze Runner series and am really looking forward to the movie. However, this book just didn't do it for me. Michael lives in a world where they hover between the virtnet and...
