Endgame: The Calling by James Frey: DNF Review

Endgame: The Calling by James Frey
Page Count: 477pgs
Published: October 7, 2014
Synopsis: (found on GR)

Twelve thousand years ago, they came. They descended from the sky amid smoke and fire, and created humanity and gave us rules to live by. They needed gold and they built our earliest civilizations to mine it for them. When they had what they needed, they left. But before they left, they told us someday they would come back, and when they did, a game would be played. A game that would determine our future.
This is Endgame.


Will exuberance beat strength? Stupidity top kindness? Laziness thwart beauty? Will the winner be good or evil? There is only one way to find out.
Play.
Survive.
Solve.
People of Earth.
Endgame has begun. 



I started the Endgame by James Frey about a week after it came out. I tried to register and I think I got all the way through but then I saw that one of the rule said you had to solve all the puzzles alone and by yourself and that's not something that I see being possible or something that can even be possible to pass off that you didn't have help from somebody.


I think puzzles like this that if they give you almost 2 years to solve it should work as a team and who cares what does it matter if you have to split the money five ways shouldn't  be told what and who you can work with.
I understand though. Rules are rules. I however am still trying some of the puzzles just not as dedicated.



Update: it's now been sometime since Endgame came out and I haven't finished it. I read about 120pgs in and I'm not committed to it. It's very Hunger Gameish for me and a little too jumpy. I don't mind the multiple view points but holy cow could they tone it down with the drama just a tad.
Maybe 200pgs in it would get better but for me I'm gonna just put my signed copy on my shelf and look at its goldness.

TTFN,

Ashley
