In this new reality, there are no laws to break or rules to obey. You can live your best life. Indulge every desire.This is Otherworld—a virtual reality game so addictive you'll never want it to end. And Simon has just discovered that for some, it might not.The frightening future that Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller have imagined is not far away.
