So begins Suspended, the first computer game to obsess seven-year-old Michael, to worm into his head and change his sense of reality.

It captures the essential strangeness of childhood, when the world is still revealing itself. It describes cafeteria politics, locker-room hazing, and divorce with a sharpness that will leave you laughing and squirming.

It re-creates a place--1980s suburban Illinois, John Hughes movie territory--in all its quotidian glory. And it explores, like nothing before it, how the ephemeral worlds of video games gave shape to a boys days.
