Metagame: Simply the best free book on the iPad

Sam Landstom's book, MetaGame, is simply superb. The subject matter is no surprise - clearly our author is on the bleeding edge of things technological.

I downloaded the free book weeks ago, but I only started reading it a few days back. It is without doubt a genuine page-turner (there should be a new iPad term for this phenomenon - perhaps MetaGame is the first PageFlipper™ ??)

The main characters are richly defined and are brought to life in a frighteningly plausible vision of a future. Dialogue is beautifully sculpted and it serves to drive the story forward at a brisk, exciting pace.


Our hero(?) D_Light is a person many of us in the iPad world can relate to and his odyssey will simultaneously entertain you and challenge your personal attitudes toward life, religion, relationships, and even the fabric of human society.

My message is simple: Download MetaGame and read it. If, as Sam has indicated, the book comes out in printed form towards the end of 2010, then I will buy it just to support this excellent writer’s endeavours.

Sam, you are a writer of the highest order. Thanks for a tremendous read!

Thank you, Roi. Hope you dig it. Also, I hope you got it when it was free. I just raised the price... Well, not that I can't use the money, buy you know. :D

Hi Sam. Very good work and your book displays well on the iPad. In fact it is the first book I've downloaded.

Great read

I have finished this book. Very good story, outstanding world concept. Well worth the time invested to read.

When's the sequel coming out?:D

Will continue to follow your work.

MetaGame has been re-released by AmazonEncore (Amazon.com's new publishing house) and they don't have it available on the iBook Store.

You can download the free iPad/iPhone Kindle reading app and then get [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003LSTK7C/"]MetaGame on Amazon.com[/ame] for $2.99.

Thanks!
Sam
