Real life games
I think the part of the story with barbara and zombiekllt14 (blake) really kind of ties it all together, it really gives you the feeling that the actors are in fact playing a real game, a game that has a final chapter at the gamers own home. When barbara says: It’s my house and and then ZombieKLLR14(Blake) says its’ my house , It is really an exciting part of the reading, I could almost visualize each of them seeing their own house .
When Blake told his teammates about Barbara and said: She looked like Cody’s mom and kept asking if I had seen him. Yeah, I thought at first it was Cody being a weirdo, but. Something was off. She kept saying , don’t go in. I know its lame, but look, shut up- I took care of it! That’s her on the sidewalk. I bashed her head in.
Then you hear Blake’s mother say:Do you remember Barbara, Cody’s mom? Blake: What about her? Joy: She’s on the sidewalk. With half her head gone. That really gave me a chill and then as if that doesnt make you feel creepy enough, Blake says:I’m unarmed. I dropped my hammer somewhere on the stairs. Joy:Is this what you’re looking for, I found it on the stairs. I think that definitely shows you how real this game has become. The author built the suspense and gave you just enough information, to tie all the people together. It was clever and evoked a lot of emotion.
