When I think of Jason Segel, 9 times out of 10, I think of slapstick movies that make me laugh and also make me want to up my sense of humor. Look, I freely admit that I laugh at things that I never thought I would. And I will admit I laughed years ago when he said that he was going to write a YA book. All I could think of was – it’s not that easy Jason.
But he made true on his promise that he was going to write and the cover for his book with his co-writer Kirsten Miller, has been released. I mean sure, I know that they wrote the middle grade, but that kinda just went over my head. But this cover, it’s kinda really badass.
Here’s the synopsis –
There are no screens. There are no controls. You don’t just see and hear it—you taste, smell, and touch it too. In this new reality, there are no laws to break or rules to obey. You can live your best life. Indulge every desire.
It’s a game so addictive you’ll never want it to end. Until you realize that you’re the one being played.
Welcome to Otherworld, where reality is dead. Step into the future. Leave your body behind.
The frightening future that Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller have imagined is not far away. Otherworld asks the question we’ll all soon be asking: if technology can deliver everything we want, how much are we willing to pay?
Will you be buying it? The book hits shelves on Nov. 7, 2017.
