Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Nova entrada da rubrica "Waiting on Wednesday". Hoje trago mais um livro pós-apocalíptico que me faz lembrar um pouco a nova série de TV "Revolution". Está a ser publicitado como uma mistura de Matrix com a lenda de Pandora. Parece bastante bom, por isso apesar de não ter gostado especialmente de um livro que li da autora, gostava bastante de ler este!

Doomed - Tracy Deebs
Editora: Penguin Group USA
Data de Publicação: 8 de Janeiro de 2013
Páginas: 480
Idioma: Inglês
Descrição (GR): "Beat the game. Save the world.
Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike."
