Rabbits is a game so secret that even most of its players aren’t 100 percent sure they’re playing. Because Rabbits is a game of connections that may or may not exist, in a game that just might be playing them. Or might kill them. Or might wipe out the entire multiverse. Or might not exist at all. Rabbits is a game for people who can’t resist finding patterns that might lead to conspiracy theories or might just be killing time. For K and Chloe, it will either drive them insane or make them rich beyond their dreams—if it doesn’t make them forget each other on its way to their doom.
VERDICT Rabbits is a story for readers who don’t think the stakes in Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One were nearly high enough. And for those who think The Matrix didn’t have nearly enough conspiracy theories or coincidences. It’s recommended for readers who like their SF on the techno-thriller side, and their endings somewhat equivocal. And for anyone who believed that the TV series Lost was a bit too straightforward after all.
