Mind Master by Clive Gifford

Clive Gifford is an award-winning author of more than fifty books on the subjects of sports and soccer. In this novel the main character, Peter, is hooked on arcade games, so when a new game appears, he can't wait to try it. Little does he realise that it will trap him endlessly in time, locked in the game to which there is only one right answer. A great novel for 9-12 year olds. The books is part of the Usborne Spinechillers Series if you are after more scary reading. To find out more about this author, click on the following link:


  1. I really enjoyed reading this book, it showed how gaming can take over people's lives and stop them from getting out in the outside world. I'd describe this book as mischevious and a fun read.

  2. Spot on Matthew. I read this in a night and thought it would appeal to boys because of the subject matter and, also because all the main characters are young teenagers.
