YOU determine the story! YOU choose your own destiny!

When Russell gets a job at Black Arts games, he reunites with the people who were once his closest friends: the people who he spent hours designing, playing and discussing games with.

He soon realises that all is not well at Black Arts. There’s a software glitch threatening the next revolutionary product launch – and in order to find it and save his job Russell has to follow it back through twenty years of real and virtual worlds, boardrooms, computer camps, rivalry and loss.

You is a story of facing dangers, realising that the most obvious path isn’t always the best one to follow, and learning that playing a game can sometimes save your life.

Reviews

A brilliant, incisive, and very funny journey through the adolescence of the computer game industry, delving with wit and charm into the fascinating question of exactly whose story is being told.
Max Barry, author of <em>Jennifer Government</em>
The idea of what drives people to make games - other than the fact that it seems like a fun thing to do - remains one that continues to feel frustratingly out of reach...Austin Grossman's new novel might be the most illuminating effort at answering that question yet.
<i>Kotaku</i>
Every bit as fun as you hope it's going to be, and also much more...Full of wit, ingenuity, and nostalgia - a meditation on what it means to be the hero of the game.
Charles Yu, author of <em>How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe</em>
Praise for Soon I Will Be Invincible
.
Imaginative and, at times, achingly real...an admirable addition to the genre
<i>New York Times</i>
Every comic-book cliché in this witty, stunning debut is lovingly embraced, then turned inside out.
<i>Wired</i>
Grossman has a superpower himself - it's called writing . . . winning, smart and funny
Douglas Coupland
