The Vatican Games by Alejandra Guibert (Book Review #757)


The Vatican games is a dystopian literary/contemporary novel written about a terrorist attack that has left the planet in destruction and has contaminated hectares of land. Technology is then the saving power, and video games are what restores life to the survivors; however, somethings not right and Vera, who is born just as the worldwide terrorists attack, is a survivor and gets involved in an incriminating investigating enticing the story into an adventure of creating balance.

The well-written thriller is filled with a demonstration of how cooperates can take over human lives, control politics, finance and inevitably the world. The drama unfolds with many twists and turns. The story is rich with a fast pace of descriptive writing.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I particularly enjoyed Vera’s character and personality. Her relationship with Alina, her mother and her partner Galo, displayed a more in-depth and layered temperament for the protagonist.

The story reflected on power, human behaviour, ecology and even religion. This fashioned a very compelling tale of a story that kept me intrigued reading along until the end.

I would recommend this book to science fiction dystopian fantasy readers.
