"fictional book" = a book the exists within fiction. ie, not a real book.

Why not simply: "Novel features world domination via MMOs"?? That's much more accurate.

I raised an eyebrow at the title too, but generaly I don't tell people how to do their job unless I'd be willing to take a crack at it.

Not a great book. It had a decent storyline, and was entertaining for the most part--but the ending was horribly executed. As well, while it keeps one foot in reality...with many of the things, it takes wild leaps. It would've been easier to make the Daemon into a real AI, rather than trying to justify a nearly omniscient dead genius of nearly 'Jigsaw' from Saw proportions.

In conclusion: If you want a good book about gaming, and a computer program trying to take over the world? Wyrm by Mark Fabi beats this, hands down. But if you've already read that book the requisite dozens of times? Hey, this isn't half bad. ;)
