Girl Gone Viral

Girl Gone Viral by Arvin Ahmadi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wanted this to be better

I liked the premise of this book and it started off solid, but I began to get a bit bored about half way through the book. Then at about 70%, things really picked up, but too much started happening. The main character began changing so much as to be unlikeable and the main plot that was described in the beginning didn’t even really come about until the last few pages, then it sort of ended with a bunch of open questions.

The book was about Opal Hopper, who lost her father seven years ago when he just disappeared one day. She doesn’t believe he is dead and believes a business associate of his and the creator of the most successful VR company in the world, knows something. So her and some of her friends at her high school create a VR talk show in order to win a contest for cash and to meet him.

The book is sort of reminiscent of Ready Player One, but with more angst and it gets serious where RPO is witty and nostalgic. This book deals with more political issues of Privacy and Technology and has a Luddite political party.

The first half of the book does well in character development with Opal and her best friend Shane and boyfriend Moyo. It is just that later in the book her relationships with them seemed to change and I didn’t really like the resolution.
