Book Review: Don’t Read The Comments

Don’t Read The Comments is a YA gaming centered novel. Most teens online game in some way or another, and they will relate to both the fun and hassles involved navigating both online friendships and harassment.

I liked both Divya and Aaron and loved the dynamics that each of them had with their families. The story is told in alternate POV chapters and you’d think that the author is female, because Eric captured the fear that women feel when being challenged online very well.

This was a quick read for me and I loved being entrenched in the gamer girl world. I think you could hand this to kids as young as thirteen with no problem. If they’ve gamed online there isn’t anything in this story that they don’t know.

It was super well done. I’m recommending it to my own gaming teen reader.

    Hey, I’m not a big gamer but I like contemporary YA. My brother is HUGE into gaming (he’s going to a big school to learn to be a game designer) so I know about a lot of the issues. Do you think I’d still like this book?

      I do think you’ll like it. If you’ve played or watched anyone play any of the big online games you’ll get what’s going on.
