    2. First I d like to thank Mr Downton for providing me with a free version of the ebook to read Although I wasn t a big fan of this one, I wanted to at least provide some context.The book Solarversia was a large undertaking as it deals with Downton s vision of a VR universe, complete with backstory, a young girl s personal life as she heads to college, the corporation that built Solarversia, and a mysterious cult Unlike in Ready Player One, I didn t feel these critical stories came together effecti [...]

    5. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced e book edition from the Solarversia newsletter in exchange for an honest review.Overall, I would rate this book between a 3.5 to a 4.0 There are a number of pros and cons that I d like to mention without going into any type of spoilers.Cons Nova s life outside of the game was rather boring and I found myself skimming over many of the chapters that included unnecessary romance and what felt like forced reality The book should have focused on in game cont [...]

    6. It s about a year long game called Solarversia, taking place in 2020 Other than that, it s nothing like ready player oneIt s written much like the hitchhiker s guide to the galaxya little like the hunger games.It s written from different point of views, some of them are surprising and unexpectedd when I read different pov s, I try to see if the characters are significantly different than one another, and they are.Each one has a different narration in my head a different accent, a different tone [...]

    7. Like others here, I received an advanced copy of Solarversia from Toby Downton, and in return I am leaving my honest review Question When is a game not just a game Answer When Toby Downton is creating it.What Mr Downton has done is nothing short of amazing He didn t just write a book He created three different universes and then had them interact with each other I can t imagine how difficult it must have been.I actually enjoyed seeing how playing a year long game would impact a person s life I f [...]

    8. Brilliant but be careful it s totally addictive If you liked Reamde or Ready Player One, you re going to love Solarversia I didn t want it to end fortunately, it seems tailor made for a sequel hint hint are you listening Toby The most fun I ve had in ages don t miss it.

    9. Toby Downton s rendition of futuristic game of wit s, survival, and just plain luck is masterfully written in this novel The characters are strong, well written and touch you deep in your soul You cant help but rooting for Nova and team as they battle it out on the way to be The One.

    10. Disclaimer I received a free copy from the author in return for writing an honest review of it once I d finished I wasn t sure what to expect before reading this book and was scared it was going to be just a boring, uninspired rip off of Ready Player One, which is one of my favourite books Luckily it stands completely on its own and I LOVED this book So if you liked Ready Player One, and were skeptical of this book, set those fears aside and know that you ll likely like this book as well I found [...]

    11. I got an advanced copy from the author in exchange for a review This book initially peaked my interest when I was told that if I liked Ready Player One, then I would like this I think that is a fair assessment Although I found the first 20% a little slow, and had a hard time connecting with the main character, it wasn t until the Solarversia game really got going that I was hooked I loved the many different tests that the character had to solve and was pleasantly surprised that things really nev [...]

I was contacted by the author, Toby Downton, to read and review an advanced copy of Solarversia I have every bit of encouragement for him as an author and hope publishing this book, his first novel, will propel him to transform of his ideas and imagination into written word Having said all that, I m going to turn my attention and my critic s eye toward Solarversia.Solarversia is story that attempts to take readers on a thrilling ride through real world and digital crime and puzzle solving Unfor [...]

    14. Para version en espa ol calabozosyrobots First of all I would like to thank Toby Downton for sending me an advanced ebook copy of his book Solarversia so as to get some first opinions and get the word out Now onto the book itself I think the synopsis says it all without spoiling anything so I m not gonna add anything.Since before I got the book I had it as a Must Read , the main reason being I enjoy books that merge real life with video gaming or virtual reality such as Daemon , Ready Player One [...]

    15. Thanks for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.This is a well paced book that sure does pack a punch Easy to follow story line that flips between the VR and real world with believable characters that develop as the story goes along The Year Long Game is as imaginative as it is quirky The elaboratness behind the names, places, challenges and random events within the game deserve 5 stars by themselves.The inclusion of the Holy Order storyline serves as a timely reminder in this day and [...]

    16. Solarversia is a great read I read it on the train and it livened up my commute no end It is also a really compelling view of the future that I think does a fantastic job of tying together a number of themes including virtual reality of course , robotics, AI and the implications that has on the jobs market, gamification, and haptic technology to name a few that spring immediately to mind I often read very dry non fiction books on these subjects and the ability to get their essence across in a no [...]

    17. If you like video games, chances are you re either a fan of or are at least familiar with massive multiplayer online role playing games, better known as MMORPGs There are a lot of MMORPGs out there right now Lord of the Rings, World of Warcraft, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, Star Trek, and Warhammer to name a few Some are hugely successful, some not so much But what is known is that a lot of people on this planet like playing them So it makes sense then that a book about an addictive MM [...]

    18. If you like reading near future science fiction books, you ll love this one It s full of cool ideas about artificial intelligence, the future of video game technology, and a whole lot If you enjoyed one of my favorite books, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, there s a great chance you ll have a blast reading this book too.The main character and her friends join Solarversia, a yearlong game that promises fame and riches to the person who wins at the end I loved the places described in this virtu [...]

    19. Quite an experience this story is so packed with exciting ideas and action as well as some weird stuff Enjoyable as a whole, although didn t like the ending it was cliffhangerish view spoiler did bombs go off irl , did Father Theodore retreat somewhere to plan new assassinations and re grow his order , what happened to Nova s father when he was struck by those darts , also it felt weird that after Nova beat Father Theodore in game everything was magically haha good again There wasn t enough clos [...]

    20. I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review All opinions in this post are my own.Virtual reality mixes with real life when players enter Solarversia, a year long video game mixing real life locations with virtual elements 100 million people will compete for the 10 million pound prize But when a religious sect sets their sites on the company that founded the game and some of its players, the [...]

    21. I received and ARC for an honest review Review When I first started reading this I had high hopes I was told it would be similar to Ready Player One That is actually how the author of the novel found me, through a post on twitter about Ready Player One Of course, I was ready to read another book similar, but I quickly found out that the only things the two books had in common where that they were about a game The first half of the book was a little slow, to be honest I drug myself through it, tr [...]

    22. One game, one winner, a year long game welcome to the world of Solarversia.I wasn t sure whether I wanted to read this book, but the cheap price and plot gave me enough to give it a try I wasn t disappointing It s complex puzzles, unpronounceable character names and it s interesting time length made Solarversia a really interesting read.There s so much to talk about the twists and turn that took place and all the complexity within the book just really made this one of my favorite book of this ye [...]

    23. As with the other reviewers, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Using multiple threads to compel the reader along, we follow the protoganist, Nova, and her friends Sushi and Burner as they seamlessy traverse both the real and virtual world during the Year Long Game With part skill, part luck and part quick thinking, one million players enter the entrancing world of Solarversia from their unique square on the players grid and must weave their way through a web of [...]

    24. Title SolarversiaSeries Number Not a part of a seriesAuthor Toby DowntonTheme s Influence of augmented reality on the future What I liked The world building All of the ideas about gaming and the effects of augmented reality on the future There are a ton of ideas and they work together to immerse the reader in the game Solerversia in new and exciting ways The thriller aspect was well done and well woven into the story I don t want to spoil anything so I won t say much , but it you re into that ge [...]

    25. I was provided a free eBook for my honest review.I was contacted by Toby Downton after I made a comment about Ready Player One, which I absolutely loved Mr Downton said if I loved that book then I should give Solarversia a shot He was absolutely right Solarversia did not disappoint.There are so many nuances and creative aspects to this story that it really kept my interest There are some confusing aspects as the vastness of the world demands tremendous descriptions, but the detail in Mr Downton [...]

    26. I was given a free copy of the Kindle version of the book by the author in exchange for writing a review I do not know him and my review is not deliberately biased in any way.The story is centred around a young British woman s involvement in a year long game played in virtual reality between one million competitors The game is based on a simulation of the solar system, but features a number of strange characters, twists and alterations to reality The players must solve problems and play sub game [...]

    27. I was offered an ARC by the author after making a remark about Ready Player One on Twitter claiming that if I loved that book, I would certainly enjoy Solarversia as well He was right I enjoyed it very much The author is great at really pulling you into the action packed scenes that are in the book My only minor gripe which makes my rating 4 stars and not 5 is that it appears there are some pretty big gaps in the timeline You get filled in on what happened in the meantime, but I feel there could [...]

    28. NOTICE I received an advanced copy of this book from the author himself for promising to leave an honest review in return Now, I am not very good at writing reviews, so I will do my best to make this a decent review, but I give no promises Solarversia is an absolutely amazing story about a young girl by the name of Nova, who enters what is called The Year Long Game , or Solarversia , a year long game full of various puzzles, challenges, and quests, with the winner receiving a vast amount of mone [...]

    29. I received a free advanced copy from the author himself when I had tweeted about Ready Player One In return all he asked was for an honest review and that is just what I m going to do.Overall I really did enjoy the book, it was set in the future and was based on a really cool virtual reality game But the game isn t all action packed its for anyone to play, yes some games take skill some take smarts but its evened out for everyone in some degree The characters are easy to relate too and some even [...]
