Reviews for EleMental: A First-person Shooter
Bookseller+Publisher review: ‘… a fantastic and exciting debut novel by Steven O’Connor … entertaining mix of futuristic sci-fi, horror, action and angst … this reads like Philip K Dick for teenagers. With the narrative sneakily shifting between the real and virtual worlds, O’Connor explores some fairly complex and sophisticated issues in a thrilling and accessible way.’ Bookseller+Publisher, June 2010.
