    Very interesting premise for a dystopian novel, where the USA is split up into more than 50 independent states. Could have been more believable if the author had explained in greater detail how the new world came about, together with the hows and whys of the various aspects of camp life, in particular, the macabre and degrading hunting and experimental activities. Info dumping is welcomed for a change. Other than that, the story is ok.

Info dumping is welcomed for a change. Other than that, the story is ok. Be prepared for a morose read because the whole outlook from beginning to end is bleak. Even the romance appeared bleak. Was there light at the end of the tunnel? I don't know how to review this part without giving anything away, so I will simply say that the conclusion is fashioned for emotional impact. And because of that impact, I will remember this book, but I know my daughter will hate me if I make her read it.

    Very Confusing. Didn't even really answer what the war game was or how it came to be. Very Confusing. Didn't even really answer what the war game was or how it came to be.

    What.The.Hell? Why did I just waste a day reading this book? It was confusing, it never really answered any questions the reader may have. The basis plot elements of 'why' and 'how' went unanswered. The book meandered painfully through the irrelevant parts, yet with a few sentences changed the entire premise. For example, at the beginning of the book Pearl is 13, then she is 12, then she is 14.

It was confusing, it never really answered any questions the reader may have. The basis plot elements of 'why' and 'how' went unanswered.

The chapter entitled 'Camp Z', which is done from John's perspective, is completely irrational and could have been cut from the book altogether without altering the story line. Speaking of story line, where was it? Nothing ever DEVELOPED. The author had MANY good ideas for plot, but did not actually follow through with a single train of thought. In many cases characters were introduced but the character development was absent. They were all just blank canvases. SOOOO much could have been done with this book, but it was just a huge disappointment. I have actually run out of words myself to describe the errors, failures and omissions within this book. It would take more words than the book actually contained to write down everything that was wrong with it. I give up. Actually, no, I will point out one glaringly obviously inconsistency in the final half. One minute John in at Camp Z hiding in a tree, the next he is killing a guard, then, lo and behold, he is being led into a courtroom with handcuffs? ARRRGGGHHHH!!! Frustration abounds! How can I rate this book any higher than one star when it was such a mess. The ending was... indescribable. The entire mish mash of ideas and half-formed plot apparently came down to one oversimplified, and extremely juvenile, final thought. Can I rewrite the book from scratch using the author's idea's? PLEASE?!?!

    The War Game written by Crystal Black is set in a futuristic time in America. Crystal Black does a very well job creating her main character Pearl. Through her eyes you meet a variety of interesting people who interact with Pearl throughout the book. Crystal Black is a talented author and shows her unique writing style with her first novel The War Game. I do have to confess I was rather confused for the first two chapters, but then got so caught up in the story till the last chapter where I was The War Game written by Crystal Black is set in a futuristic time in America.

Crystal Black is a talented author and shows her unique writing style with her first novel The War Game. I do have to confess I was rather confused for the first two chapters, but then got so caught up in the story till the last chapter where I was once again confused. Crystal Black failed to explain how the world came to be as described in the book or what exactly is going on. Again once you get past the initial confusion The War Game will pull you in.

    I really liked this book it was a distinctive dystopian without a happy ending. My heart goes out the the characters and all that they suffer through to get to the end of the game. YA Recommended
