Chapman, They thought it was just a video game, but it s not Someone is out there Watching.Nick is somebody who needs his life to change Exhausted, broke, and cracking under the pressure of trying to hold everything together, it begins to seem like there is no end in sight Then the video game he s spent two years developing alongside his best friend Dan mysteriously disappearsThey thought it was just a video game, but it s not Someone is out there Watching.Nick is somebody who needs his life to change Exhausted, broke, and cracking under the pressure of trying to hold everything together, it begins to seem like there is no end in sight Then the video game he s spent two years developing alongside his best friend Dan mysteriously disappears to be replaced with something new, something better, something finished.Initially unsure whether to release the game, Nick makes a snap decision when he learns of the impact that his struggles finishing the game are having on his wife, Lily, who has a history of depression Before long, positive reviews and sales come rolling in, but Nick finds himself in a worse position than ever before Because the game is not content to simply be played It wants to change, it wants to grow, and most disturbing of all, it seems to want something from them.Networked contains several chapters depicting a character s journey with depression Some readers may find this content upsetting.

    1. Amazing book a treasure to be proud of a very hard topic to write about and it was well thought out and very insightful This amazing story I would be so delighted to recommend to my friends also my heart felt thanks to the author L.K.Chapman for the exquisite pleasure of reading this wonderful book so to all happy reading from wee me.

    2. I loved Networked The story is narrated by a character called Nick, and is based around his work, life, wife and business partner friend Dan Dan and Nick creates and develops video games One night, they lost all their work on their unfinished video games, but quickly retrieved a full complete version of the game perfectly operational, ready to be released After thinking about it they release the game, which started to affect their lives in many ways I enjoyed the element of mystery appearing ear [...]

    3. I quite enjoyed the characterisations, the psychology was vivid and I think Chapman s captured a lot of the reality of self harm well I found the network side of the story less appealing the fact that the guys were computer programmers really didn t hold any water or add anything to the story.Still, as a debut novel there s a lot of good here, and I d be interested to see what comes out in the future.

    4. I won this book in a give away From the first page this book takes you gently into a seemingly familiar world that gradually becomes less and less mundane.The plot is a wonderful journey into what if , which stands along side some of the best traditional SF The story is wonderfully written and held me from page 1, through to the end.L.K Chapman has an eminently readable style,and I am looking forward to reading some of her work.

    5. An interesting tech thriller although it got slightly kooky at the end after promising a speculative type of sci fi from early on Character back stories were interesting and harrowing in equal measure but as the story went on it was quite clear this was not mere character development and it certainly wasn t filler In a way, the life experiences of the two main secondary characters were extremely relevant.It s thoroughly engaging too You don t need to be familiar with tech thrillers, coding, MMO [...]

    6. A page turner that made me re think a few things in my life.I was only a quarter of the way in when I wrote this update on The depression areas of this book are really hard to take because I knew someone who was very similar to the character in this book But the story is incredibly gripping I m totally hooked This book dove right into it There were only a few chapters in the beginning that I wasn t sure the direction the book was going to take But once the action started it didn t let up I read [...]

    7. Networked is a real page turner Each chapter left me dying to read the next one and the pace of the story is very well balanced It s packed with intense scenes but also has intimate moments where the characters personalities shine through.The story covers some pretty diverse topics, including artificial intelligence and violence in video games but also depression, intimate relationships and even questions what it means to be alive.The three main characters in Networked are normal people trying t [...]

    8. l received this book for free through Firstreads giveaway.A toss up between two and three stars o stars won Why l found the story rather far fetched and not in my opinion well told l wanted to shout at the characters and tell them to stop being silly, pull themselves together and tell the world.l will not seek out any other books by L K Chapman.

    9. I really like this book I kept wanting to find out what happened next so couldn t put it down A word of warning it does contain swearing and scenes of a sexual nature , also it explores subjects some people may find controversial That said I would highly recommend this novel I am female and over 50.

    10. Bit of a mixed opinion about this one A solid sci fi story with some interesting ideas about mental health and relationships thrown in The writing frustrated me for some reason though.
