It was dark and Robert Parker was in pain. His head felt like it was constantly being drilled by a jackhammer and the darkness seemed to be palpable enough to flood his lungs and drown him. He didn't quite remember why he was in such pain or why he was in darkness. Honestly, he didn't remember much of anything. The last thing he can bring up to mind were memories from what he assumed was just a few hours prior. He was being chauffeured around New York City with a newly acquired business partner celebrating the acquisition of millions of dollars to their overseas bank accounts. He remembered enjoying the things that come with owning one of the largest chemical corporations in the world. Things such as pure Columbian cocaine and the best call girls in the city battling each other for a right to own a portion of his wealth. After that though, nothing. His mind was a clean slate.

I liked the book , but it was exactly like saw minus a couple things vice versa. I agree with the remark down below. I didnt like how you kept repeating everything it was very confusing to me and I almost thought it was a mistake or something at first. overall some nice descriptive words but very predictible aswell.
good job .

It really isn't bad. In my opinion, there wasn't enough detail, and although the overlapping between the character in the game and the character watching the game was good - it's just not something I'd have thought would work. It did, but it was also too repetitive. It was the same thing, written twice, except for differing views.

I truly loved the end, and it's a wonderful story.

I liked this chapter. Basically just a filler of the plot, but very interesting and new. [:
