The Game of Satori, a virtual reality escape game that hacks your mind–delving deeply into your subconscious, pulling memories, thoughts and beliefs to the surface that have long been suppressed. All in the name of Satori–sudden enlightenment. The winner will claim one million dollars and the promise of a new life.

Do you have the guts to see what’s hidden there?It’s just a game… isn’t it?

A new reality show is taking the nation by storm. Satori is a game of escape, only the rooms are not the typical one-hour affair. In Satori’s virtual reality game, players have five days to solve each room’s cutting-edge maze filled with physical, emotional, and psychological puzzles. All in the name of reaching Satori—translation: “sudden enlightenment.”

Produced by the infamous Jacob Novak, known for creating revolutionary technology that pushes the bounds of imagination and his half-brother, Gabriel, the iconic transformational guru whose personal growth platform ‘awakens your aliveness,’ Satori guarantees not only to alter the lives of the contestants through the supernatural rooms, but also the lives of those who tune in to watch.

Ellie, twenty-two, who recently embezzled money to help a friend escape deportation—and dodge her own eviction notice—finds herself on the run only to be randomly selected from an open call to the public: join the new game Satori. The prize is one million dollars and a get-out-of-jail-free card.The game quickly becomes a heart-racing labyrinth through a series of psychological tests meant to break—or transform—each contestant.

As other contestants struggle and fail, Ellie holds on through sheer desperation, knowing that her sanity and future depend on her tenacity to become the first survivor of Satori.

My Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

There’s a new gameshow coming to TV called Satori, it’s an escape room game. Little do the contestants know, it’s so much more than that! With tiny microchips inserted into their necks, virtual reality without any other contraptions. What they don’t realize it that each room they will be escaping is directly associated with an event in their lives they would rather not revisit.

What did I just read?!? This book blew my mind on so many different levels. The imagination behind the plot was out of this world. The characters – each one was flawed in a way that is totally relatable. The pace of the book was fast, I couldn’t put it down and finished it in two days (I have a toddler or it would have been 1 day)! I really hope that there is a continuation of what’s next!! I’ll be thinking about this book for a while – of that I’m sure!
