And then things really start to get strange -- and passions lead to betrayals lead to violence.The Game is the story of one man's transformation from frog to prince to prisoner in the most unforgettable book of the year.More

An Interesting Trip Through the Culture
- Deep Reader
As a performance, it was very average, but the story was really well written and intriguing.
There were several moments where the main character reveals his own failings and somehow makes the story more interesting because of them. His encounters with what most men would fantasize about and the honesty about the fear and social paralysis that comes along with them. Great stuff.
I'm not sure. The author read the book. I suppose a pro could have done a smoother job of it, but the times where he was awkward in real life in the book came across that way in his narration. It just wouldn't have sounded believable coming from some silver-throated voice actor.
It's a great "the grass is greener" example. I thought it was a fascinating view into a world where I would never want to tread but probably would have envied those who made the trip. Now, that's not the case.
Great character development and, despite what most would think given the subject matter, very deep throughout.
