At its high points, this book is actually pretty good. The adventure takes some unexpected turns and leads You to places that You didn't expect to go, taking advantage of the ever-present feeling in gamebooks that You really are the one controlling all of the action. There are also a few intriguing new story devices that enhance the story as it is told. Taking advantage of a world that at the time of the book's publication (1999) was becoming more and more immersed in the internet experience, R.L. Stine launches the creepy monsters of his story by way of the world wide web. Simply searching the net one day with your friend, Mark, you are met with a strong virus that has infected your computer. You attempt to institute basic measures that should rid your unit of the bug, but it quickly becomes clear that this is no ordinary viral adversary. The enemy that you face is some kind of a living creature that can infect both you and your computer, and once bitten by the thing, your own memory will begin to disappear at an alarming rate. What can you do to capture this awful incarnate virus and get medical help for your brain as it loses vital power? Use the help of your friends, and be wise in selecting those whom you might trust, and you'll have a shot at making it through your ordeal alive. There are no guarantees that making smart choices will lead you into better situations in this particular gamebook, though; you'll have to hope for the best and see if perhaps a little bit of luck might just come your way.
