The choices of words are great. There are no confusing scenes.
I love how the author portrayed the candidates. She knows how to make every part of the story move. She knows how to gradually unfold suspenseful events for her readers. It is a great and very intriguing read!

We are welcomed into a world where a new stadium has been built. But in this stadium, an event is taking place that is no ordinary event. Many people are signed up for the first "Suicide Games" where your survival depends on how high and far you can jump. Those who say that there should be more obstacles than jumping, think about it. After you jump for a long period of time, you get exhausted and worn out from it and eventually you fall.
I enjoyed the character background stories and grew to love some of them and hate some of them. At one point I was stifling a cheer for one of them. Give this book a chance, you won't regret it.
The story takes place in the near future, in a global economy where people lose most of their individuality, and their self worth. Suicide Game is a reality show where contestants jump, either to live or die, depending on chance or the whims of "the Council." However, other persons and factors enter into the equation as to whether a given contestant lives or dies.
This work of fiction explores the human condition, and the thoughts and circumstances that drive people to commit suicide. In this case, to enter into a gladiator-type reality show in a modern, high tech Colosseum. Lost love, bitterness, personal pain, denial, injustice, uncertainty, and the world's inconsistencies are the primary motives. The Council exploits the participant's will to die for their own profit, while the audience's need for excitement and participation makes them exploitable as well.
Haidji explores a wide variety of issues in her book, human value, individuality, life, death, and birth. She even considers the possibility of machines becoming living beings, possessing the attributes of life and death.
Unintentionally, their is a couple of places in the book that brought me some levity. A robot in the book is named Alphabot, like a character out of the old computer game Lil' Howie's Great Word Adventure. Another was the use of the term "Milk of Amnesia" because it reminds of old Philip's Milk of Magnesia commercials. This was likely unintentional on the author's part.
Overall, it is a well written book, and it does keep the reader's attention. However, the Suicide Game mantra does become a little old after awhile.
