Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author, via Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review.
My Thoughts: When I first read the description of Geek Games I immediately thought of that 80s movie, War Games. This book was quite different and definitely had more of the sci-fi element.
Geek Games definitely suffers from a less than stellar book overview. It doesn't do the book justice and really doesn't make a reader want to pick it up. That is unfortunate because in a way, it fits the idea of not judging a book by its cover.
The writing was more juvenile than I expected. After reading Geek Games, I would be more inclined to recommend it solely to ages 10-15 that like science fiction. The tempo of the writing was a bit awkward. The action scenes didn't seem urgent, just rushed. I think there's a lot of potential in Geek Games, if the author were to flesh out more of the scenes and make it longer.
The characters were not at all believable. Throughout the majority of the book I found myself annoyed with how bratty (Alan and Martin specifically) tended to be. I realize they were only 14, but I don't ever remember acting like that (even at my worst). Throwing tantrums and talking back (in the most disrespectful way possible) to adults, while living through a ridiculous plot was just too much for me.
I wasn't necessarily a fan of Geek Games, but I didn't dislike it. Geek Games just never captured my attention fully or sucked me into its story. I would recommend it to a very specific audience (10-15 year olds that like sci-fi).

Read information about the author
Born and raised in Manhattan, I have lived in the Boston area since just after the blizzard of 1976, thus missing the opportunity to abandon my car in a snowbank and walk home. I am the daughter of a painter and the mother of three grown sons. An avid science fiction fan, I selected Robert A. Heinlein's "Farmer in the Sky" for my tenth birthday, now long past. I live outside of Boston with my partner and a large number of dogs.
In spite of earning my living as a computer software engineer, I turned to one of my sons to put up the first version of my website, a clear illustration of the computer generation gap. An accomplished flute and piccolo player, I can also write backwards and wiggle my ears. Thanks to my father's relentless hounding, I can still recite the rules for pronoun agreement in both English and French. My articles, poem, and stories have appeared in anthologies and journals such as Melusine, Front Range Review, and All Rights Reserved. My 2010 NaNo novel, "Relocated", was published by MuseItUp Publishing in July. I published the book of poems that goes with the book through CreateSpace. My book, The Angry Little Boy will be published by 4RV publishing in 2013. I am one of six authors of the poetry anthology, "Lifelines."
