The audiobook for Gamers has been up on Audible for a couple of weeks now, but I’ve been patiently sitting on my hands waiting for it to show up on iTunes and Amazon before making the announcement. After a linkage snafu with Amazon that ACX got fixed pretty quickly, the audiobook links are now live.
If you’re a fan of YA dystopias and audiobooks, I guarantee you’ll love Gamers. Tisch Cistrunk-Parmelee, the narrator, did such a fantastic job with the reading that her voice is now the voice of the characters in my head. And thankfully, she’s agreed to do the other two books in the series – Frags and Coders – so we’ll get to hear her amazing voice for the whole trilogy.
Two points for brushing your teeth. Ten points for keeping your room tidy. Seventy-two points for the Bioeconomic Game Design pop quiz on the ride to school in your personal FunCar. Another thirty for making every hurdle in gym class.
Life is a game, unless you’re not the one winning.
Gabby DeCorte, top student and reality-hacker extraordinaire, has been doing whatever it takes to keep her best friend, Zaela, from falling behind in LifeGame. Zaela has gifts of artistry that amaze Gabby, but none of those skills translate in LifeGame and with final exams coming up, they can’t afford to waste a single minute. But when a mysterious group called the Frags contacts Gabby claiming to know what really happens to the losers of LifeGame, she must choose between winning and what she believes in.
