2.5 stars, rounded down to 2.0 starsWith the mazes and games that have deadly consequences, to compare this book to movies ... it felt very "Saw"-light ... or maybe "Jumangi"-dark. The writing started mediocre at best, but got a little (just a little) stronger throughout the three books. I found mos...

Rating: 4.5 Stars In The Forbidden Game, L.J. Smith has created a world that is not only haunting and real, but also remarkably unique. In the genre of YA Fiction, unique is not a word we hear very often. Words like amazing character development, kick-ass heroine, and paramount themes are al...

Finally finished the entire trilogy, and overall, 4 STARS. I must say, this is one of the better YA novels that I've read. I would recommend this read for younger teens for optimal enjoyment, but don't let that stop you if you're an adult. This one volume contains three books, each with its own p...

3.5 pretty good and affordable since all 3 books cost the same as one normal book.

I'm a little torn between giving this a 3 or 4. On one hand, the concept is interesting and well-executed, the female lead is a strong character who undergoes a lot of growth through the book, and the story was simply compelling. On the other hand, aside from Jenny and Julian, all the characters wer...

Well, I read it back in the 90's, so it's been a while. It definitely isn't the best series by L.J.Smith It was more unique, so that made it interesting. But if I remember correctly it was still cookie-cutter in the characterization. So it's a nice, easy YA read but you likely won't have a burning d...

Capezio flats...yep. Reading this book inspired many text-bates with a dear friend like "what highschool juniors take business law and inteior decorating" or "what does eyes like a saracastic spaniel even mean." I bought the omnibus out of nostalgia. But if I am going to return to the summer books o...

Overall, The Forbidden Game is not a bad trilogy, especially if you were to compare it to her new VD Nightfall series. The writing is concise and to the point, with no unnecessary descriptions or digressions. And the story itself is quite interesting to follow, in regards to the lore, even though it...

I read this when I was much younger and I loved it! It kept me up till wee hours in the morning just to finish it.The reason why I'm not giving it 5 stars is because Julian died. It made a great impact to the story and it made his feelings for Jenny even more precious but still...I cried so bad.
