The Rule of Thoughts by James Dashner - ESSENTIAL

Dashner, James  The Rule of Thoughts,  328p. Delacorte Press, 2014.   $18.99. Language:G (1 sweasr, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG ( 2 non-graphic deaths).  

Michael’s computer-generated consciousness has been downloaded into a human body - what happened to the former occupant - he has no idea.  Instead of blindly following Kaine’s orders, Michael escapes and heads to find his two best friends from the gaming world - Sarah and Bryson.  Together the trio have to maneuver layers, blindsides, lies, and enormous amounts of computer code.  If they don’t somehow find a way to stop him, Kaine will replace every human currently alive with a computer generated Tangent.  There is absolutely no on ether can trust except for each other. 

Go Dashner - this time he wrote danger and excitement without resorting to a blood bath.  While people will make comparisons to the Matrix, Dashner also adds in Inception-like ideas, making a complex story that is very engaging.
