Fantasy, Game, or Real Life?

You don’t need to be a gamer to enjoy OTHERWORLD. Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller have created an alternate reality that very well could be our future, in just a few short years. The story is told through the eyes of 18-year-old Simon Eaton as he strives valiantly to save the girl he loves, Katherine Foley. Though her body is encapsulated in a science/programming lab in the real world, supposedly suffering from a debilitating brain syndrome, her life force is in Otherworld planning and strategizing to stay alive long enough for Simon to find her. But she can’t leave unless he dons the same type of electronic device that allows him to jump in game. But what he finds there is NOT what he expected.

Excellent pace, rich characters, wild settings that could just as well be a fantasy world…or the real world…you just have to live long enough to see it!
