Final Girls by Mira Grant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another win for Mira Grant (Seanan Mcguire). :)
This is a short psychological technothriller involving virtual reality, psychological therapy, and a bit of industrial espionage.... but if you're REALLY worried that you'll be missing out on a few nom-nom moments, don't be. This has everything we've ever wanted in a book from the horror/SF queen.
The real joy comes from both the characters and the cool explanation of how to use dreams and virtual reality together to build helpful, if fake, memories and establish a better foundation for one's psyche.
Were you scarred by something in your childhood? Missing fundamental connections with your loved ones? Perhaps just need to take care of a few phobias? No problem. Introducing scripted dreams/memories. :)
Of course things go to hell.
And that's what we love so much about these books, right?
Most interestingly, however, is the focus on FRIENDSHIP in this novella. It's pretty damn awesome.
I'd say go run out and buy a copy, but it's at a whopping $40 at the moment! Still, it's worth it. :) Assuming you're not using Netgalley! Hi, Netgalley!
Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this cool ARC! :)
