A thoroughly enjoyable story that used just enough intimacy to keep the reader interested. A definite page-turner that I had trouble putting down. The premise was unique in the post-apocalyptic genre. Highly recommended reading. There is a great deal of discussion of physics, math and geometry that adds good background information without distracting from the on-going story. Characters are developed quite well for the most part, and the reader tends to 'feel' for certain characters -- the goal of most authors. Very good examination of how certain people will act when all societal restrictions are removed.
Different groups of college students from the University of Vermont are invited to a strange fraternity party in the wilderness. The location turns out to be something a lot different then anyone was expecting. The adventures they will experience are often surprising yet always exciting.
I was surprised this story lacked any reviews as it's one of my favorite sci-fis on this site.
"It's my party" is impossible to pigeonhole and I don't want to spoil the plot for prospective readers, so I have to be somewhat vague. While reading it, I had this image of a deadly game of "capture the flag" taking place in an urban environment with more than a little "Lord of the flies" rolled in. If you're like me and unable to put down a book with a compelling plot, this story makes for a long and unproductive day.
Be aware that some parts are quite violent (though, looking at the codes including torture and rape should give some indication to event the most simple).
