Series Info/Source: This is the first book in the Dream Park series (there are four books in this series). I got this as an audiobook through Audible.

Audiobook Quality (4/5): The narration on this audiobook was fine. The narrator does a fine job with character voices and was decent to listen to. While I didn’t love this on audiobook, I thought it was fine.

Story (4/5): I enjoyed this quite a bit. I was surprised at how well this book has aged over the years. I enjoyed the fact that these characters are basically doing a complex LARP but there is a mystery from real life that wraps into their fantasy adventure. The story is well woven and kept me interested. The build up is a bit slow and the hopping back and forth between characters at the beginning is slightly hard to follow and feels a bit fractured, but does come together better as the story continues. Lastly, despite all the unique and fun trappings this is at its heart a straight-forward and fairly predictable who-dun-it type of mystery; which honestly is not my favorite type of story.

Characters (3/5): There are a lot of characters here and at times they are hard to keep track of. The sheer number of characters also makes them hard to relate to. I was a bit worried going in about a lack of strong female characters (given that this is an early 80's book) but was pleasantly surprised to find the characters (female/male) were fairly well balanced. I was also surprised by the rather modern acceptance around different sexualities as well. You still do get some things that feel dated but it's not too bad (women are called baby or sweetie and at points, women need to be saved and protected).

Setting (4/5): The Dream Park setting is an intriguing one. This is basically a futuristic theme park where people can join in on very realistic LARP adventures. These adventures involve a combination of LARP and holograms and other high tech manipulations. It’s a creative idea that is slowly coming to reality for gamers today. It was fun to see how close this is getting to current VR gaming, especially since it was written so long ago.

Writing Style (3/5): The writing here is okay. As I mentioned it starts out pretty rough and feels very fractured. A lot of language feels a bit dated and it has a more stark mid 80’s sci-fi writing style to it. The plot is fairly predictable and the fact that we have to follow so many characters throughout the story (and that a lot of them end up as fodder) was kind of a bummer. I am glad I finally read this and thought it was enjoyable but also have no desire to come back for more.

My Summary (3.5/5): Overall this was decent and I am glad I finally read it. Will I continue to read this series? Probably not. It was a fun listen but the world and characters didn't draw me in enough for me to want to read more. I am also not a huge fan of straight-up who-dun-it murder mysteries. Also parts of this (language, societal thinking) feel a bit dated to me and I just didn’t really enjoy the writing style all that much. ( )

Perhaps the only book so far I've seen capture both science and gaming in the same go effectively. Exceptionally well thought out from novel, science, myth, and game perspectives. ( )

Alex Griffin is the Chief of Security for Dream Park, a theme park that is part Disneyland and part Star Trek Holodeck. Dream Park is the world headquarters for Live Action Role Play adventures where the stakes are very, very high. On this day, however, Alex is less worried about Orcs and Goblins than about the dead security guard and the missing secret formula. Clues indicate that the murderer is still in Dream Park - and in fact - still inside the latest high stakes Role Play game. In order to catch a killer, Alex has to enter the game and play along while trying to ferret out the truth.

I actually enjoyed this one more than I should have. It took a little while to get going, but once Griffin enters the game, things get interesting. ( )

Dream Park is the Disney World of the future. In it, you can play out your fantasy as if it were real. The South Seas Treasure Game is one of the hottest attractions in Dream Park. Injuries and deaths are computer simulations but when a real death occurs the head of the park's security force has to enter the game to discover the killer. Pretty gripping stuff. ( )
