Book Review: Erebos

Welcome to Term 3! Here’s a review of a great new book I read over the hols.

Erebos by Ursula Poznanski

Erebos is one of those books that’s currently taking the reading world by storm. If you want a book that is exciting, thrilling and just a little bit creepy, this is it. But be warned: enter at your own risk. You won’t be able to put this book down!

Almost everyone at school seems to be playing a mysterious new computer game called ‘Erebos’ – but no-one’s talking about it. When Nick finally gets his hands on a copy, he can see what all the fuss is about. Erebos is highly addictive and like no other game Nick has ever played before. But soon, the line between the digital world and the real world becomes blurred. Players are asked to carry out actions in the real world in order to advance further in the game. As Nick gets drawn deeper into the world of Erebos, his sense of right and wrong begin to crumble and the game becomes more and more sinister.

This book was originally written in German but has been translated into over 20 languages, including English. There’s a reason for this – it’s utterly captivating. Like the computer game in the story, the book itself is addictive. There are a multitude of twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very end.

This is a great read on its own or a fabulous supplement to any student who is studying ‘Whose Reality’. Highly recommended.

Happy Reading! Ms White 🙂
