The Reality Bug (Pendragon #4)
Fresh from his battle with Saint Dane in 1937 Earth, Bobby is confident that they can defeat whatever Saint Dane has planned for this world. But once Bobby enters the virtual world will he be able to resist the lure of the ultimate in escapism?
This was the first Pendragon book I read, and I was most impressed. I quickly began the series, enjoying re-reading 'The Reality Bug' when the time came. A fantastic book that will keep most teens and young readers on the edge of their seat. While not the best book in the series, it will entertain and consume you almost instantly.
This book was quite appealing. I didn't like how you couldn't know if what you were reading was real, because that got confusing, but the more I read, the more I understood, and the more I wanted more. I can't believe anyone in this world could make a series this ingenius, but apparently, DJ Machale can, and I'm glad he can, because then I could read this awesome series!
Bobby takes his trip to Veelox, where he meets Aja, the traveler from Veelox, who at first refuses his help, because she wants to help save her territory, but then she realizes he needs his help. Lifelight was a program created by Dr.Zetlin, who was very intelligent. Dr.Zetlin didn't like his early childhood, because they knew he was very intelligent, and he never had real friends. Lifelight was his project for life, because in Lifelight, everything you want in a perfect life is there. But that would ruin the territory, so Aja made the Reality Bug, but it was too much for the system. It made the bad things that happened in Lifelight real. Usually, if you died in Lifelight, you would just get out of the dream (called a "jump"), but the Reality Bug made it so that when they died, they died in real life. Bobby and his friend Loor go into Lifelight to search for Dr.Zetlin, in search of the password that could possibly fix the reality bug. In the end, Lifelight is ruined, but everyone in the territory already had plans to fix it, and Bobby and his friends could do nothing to stop it. So Saint Dane(the bad guy)m won the territory over, sadly. Despite that fact, I liked this book. It was, let's say "smart".
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and hope a lot of people would read this.
This book is pretty good. Probably not my favorite in the series, but still awesome. This book starts out a little slow, but graduly gets better and gets a faster pace. Bobby must go to the world of Veelox. Where all the people there live in a virtual reality machine called life lite. But when a virus gets in it makes all the peoples worst fears happen in the virtual reality's. One thing is for sure. In virtual reality, anything can happen!!!
When Bobby finds Aja, Veelox traveler, she tells him what Saint Dane may be up to. But meanwhile Saint Dane is planning everything thats going to happen, Aja shows what might happen. Aja shows how people live on Veelox. People live their dreams and their fantasies. But Bobby doesn't see why Saint Dane can ruin Veelox, and push it towards Halla.
