Product Description

SG- Suicide Game is a metaphor about the society where persons almost kill themselves to achieve their goals and forget their dreams, but, in the book you will find also real love, friendship, loyalty, hope and an unexpected finale showing the good essence of the human seed.

Eight thousand candidates sign up for the Suicide Game. Only one can win. Their destination is the Night Stadium: a place of makeup and music, fear and adrenaline, blood and romance, celebration and death. Each candidate has his or her own reason for entering the Game.

The Council runs the Game. The outcome of the Game is left to fate...in the laps of the gods. The candidates will jump to their deaths in order to win everything, before capacity crowds in the Stadium. The public follows every jump, live on TV and mobile device screens, choosing their favorite candidates and betting on their lives. Who will win the game?
Candidate 0907 - Moma - the terrorist?
Candidate 1518 - Fabio Giovanni Cristiani - the cyclist?
Candidate 3507 - Anthony Henrik Gustav - the lawyer?
Candidate 4914 - Jens Plaato - the politician?
Candidate 4918 - Sarah Mondstein - the career woman?
Candidate 5151 - Bianca White - just a girl ?
Candidate 7195 - The Scientist?
…Or is it a completely different Candidate?

The Game’s community also includes geeks, mafia, makeup artists, master chefs, models, musicians, spies, terrorists, and many others.
It boldly imagines a place where death and denial are interwoven with hope, choices and the innate desire for happiness. Impressive in the totality of its vision, it is an exploration of the best and worst things in our lives, our nightmares, and especially our dreams.

How delightful and stunning and original idea! I liked Suicide Game so much! It's different and various. The plot blew me up and the characters are amazing. I loved it from the beginning to end. It was a true page turner for me. My favorite character was Alessandra, but all of them were great. There are countless different and interesting elements in this book and it's full of great enigmas too.
It's clear that the author carefully thought about it and put together the pieces of this masterpiece.
I love it and I jumped reading so many pages. I had to read and read and read it until it was over.
Five stars and the greatest possible recommendation. Well done, Haidji

4.0 out of 5 stars An Imaginative and Thought Provoking Book 15 December 2014
By David A. Budka - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Suicide Game is an imaginative and thought provoking work. While it might appeal more to teenage and twenty year old audiences, it still might be liked by older readers.
The story takes place in the near future, in a global economy where people lose most of their individuality, and their self worth. Suicide Game is a reality show where contestants jump, either to live or die, depending on chance or the whims of "the Council." However, other persons and factors enter into the equation as to whether a given contestant lives or dies.
This work of fiction explores the human condition, and the thoughts and circumstances that drive people to commit suicide. In this case, to enter into a gladiator-type reality show in a modern, high tech Colosseum. Lost love, bitterness, personal pain, denial, injustice, uncertainty, and the world's inconsistencies are the primary motives. The Council exploits the participant's will to die for their own profit, while the audience's need for excitement and participation makes them exploitable as well.
Haidji explores a wide variety of issues in her book, human value, individuality, life, death, and birth. She even considers the possibility of machines becoming living beings, possessing the attributes of life and death.
Unintentionally, their is a couple of places in the book that brought me some levity. A robot in the book is named Alphabot, like a character out of the old computer game Lil' Howie's Great Word Adventure. Another was the use of the term "Milk of Amnesia" because it reminds of old Philip's Milk of Magnesia commercials. This was likely unintentional on the author's part.
Overall, it is a well written book, and it does keep the reader's attention. However, the Suicide Game mantra does become a little old after awhile.
5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it and Read it (and then read it again). Amazing !! 19 February 2017

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
SG - Suicide Game is a unique, superbly written, thought-provoking work of literature. It is not "mass market fiction", even though it's very easy to read. It is fast-paced, captivating and thrilling. Underneath the surface lie the many layers of the plot, revealing themselves in intricate ways; the way only Haidji can do, with her amazing prose and occasional use of poetic styles. The reader has plenty of room to create their own visual imagery, as if each reader is the Director of their own film version of the book. SG - Suicide Game occurs in the near future. It explores the human condition, including loss of individuality and self-worth, subjugation to "the system", exploitation, love (lost and found), emotional pain, robots (becoming conscious beings), death and birth, and redemption (maybe for all of us?). The characters in this book are amazing, even including the robot (Alphabot), so everyone will have their own favorite (or most disliked) character(s) which again, makes this work of fiction very "real". Now, to address a couple of key points from other reviews: (1) A small minority of reviewers have remarked that the Suicide Game “mantra” becomes a little old after awhile. But like with everything about Haidji's work, we need to think and reflect more deeply: why is Haidji doing this? She gives us a hint ("NLP"), but maybe there is even more to it than that. So, as usual, Haidji's writing tactics are spot-on and if we didn't "get it", it's on us. Indeed, recent events only prove her point: with the cable "news" cycle, don't we often just surrender and believe, hearing repetition after repetition, or we don't hear (or appreciate) the words any more? (2) Many reviewers emphatically say that SG - Suicide Game is nothing at all like "The Hunger Games", and they are correct: there is no similarity in any way, except for the coincidence of four letters (game). This message needs to be emphasized for the benefit of persons who aren't yet familiar with Haidji's books. Haidji is the real deal, a totally original author and amazing and unique storyteller. SG - Suicide Game is from an entirely different (literary) universe than THG. So go buy SG - Suicide Game and read it, and then read it again. You will have a great read, and I predict that pretty soon you will be exploring Haidji’s other books, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Average "Games" 1 March 2015
By Cayce Hrivnak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Now I have read negative comments about this story along with saying it's another "Hunger Games." It is not. There are more characters, development, great story, and idea than "The Hunger Games." It makes you think twice about signing up for a mysterious looking job posting.

We are welcomed into a world where a new stadium has been built. But in this stadium, an event is taking place that is no ordinary event. Many people are signed up for the first "Suicide Games" where your survival depends on how high and far you can jump. Those who say that there should be more obstacles than jumping, think about it. After you jump for a long period of time, you get exhausted and worn out from it and eventually you fall.

I enjoyed the character background stories and grew to love some of them and hate some of them. At one point I was stifling a cheer for one of them. Give this book a chance, you won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who Will Survive? 29 November 2013
By Jody - Published on Amazon.com

A fun-fast-Pony-Ride! :)...Out-of-the-box-reading Fun!

This is 'not' "The Hunger Games"! Yet --given the popularity of "The Hunger Games" --is natural to associate similarities.

While reading Haigdj's story-- its easy to imagine a huge stadium with crowds of people --A
'colorful' place--- Hare Krishna's in orange clothes chanting or selling lighters to give off the feeling of candle-lighting --candidates in the game -the smells of food --(suicide dogs) --a baby in a mother's arm --etc.
The 7 main council members have 'colorful-names': white, yellow, red, blue, green, purple, black.

Note: At different times in the story --I'd pause to myself --imagine calling my daughters -or a friend -- by the name of 'yellow' ---or 'green'? How you doing, today, 'green'??? "Want a cup of tea Yellow"? Then I'd take it further --and remember my daughters painting their naked bodies as children. Its amazing the different 'visual's a book can stimulate for readers --(from our past--etc.)

This story feels abstract in the way a wonderful contemporary painting might be -(creating images -visuals for the mind and heart). There are wonderful poems and quotes mixed into the 'Game' reflecting on love, life, and death. ---reaching deeper into our souls.

I would have enjoyed the character of 'Moma',[candidate 0907], to have been developed more. I especially found 'Moma' an interesting character (but didn't get enough of him) -- He had a PH.D in explosives engineering. He was a specialist in bombing attacks. He knew how to build bombs and how to disarm them without leaving a mark. Everytime 'Moma' took a break from being in the story I missed him.

Reading "Suicide Game" in one sitting gave me the feeling of 'being part' of the -community.

The New Game
The New Mania
8000 Candidates and now only .....left
Only 1 will survive
Only 1 will win ....

10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

JUMP!

You'll enjoy the ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars It literally holds on to you and it will never let you go until the final page. A most exquisite reading experience. 7 February 2014
By Michael Mulvihill Horror Novelist - Published on Amazon.com

Haidji author of “Suicide Game” (like Azzimov) understands that sometimes, just sometimes it is the horror that goes on “off screen” that can be the most terrifying. Like all good science fiction it sends a warning signal to us of ‘what can go wrong,’ Azzimovs ‘what can go wrong’ lessons were set in outer space, Haidji deals with this theme in our world.
This is fast paced fiction. As good as anything you would see in the store, it reads like thrilling, commercial fiction.
“Suicide Game” is a book “Rage Against The Machine” would be rightfully proud of because Haidji is demonstrating what the machine is capable of and she takes it to its fullest conclusion.
Haidji understands how mass hysteria, brain washing, mind control works, and the group unconscious mind works. Now imagine turning all of that into a story. But, let me be clear, she understands even greater hidden secrets about how people are manipulated, fooled, turned into units of consumerism. I am not surprised that NLP is referenced more than once. Of course Neuro Linguistic Programming is in play here but so to are the mechanics of hypnosis. She alludes to how adverts use the power of suggestion to draw people into truly mind numbing activities.
The use of repetition, auto-suggestion, mass hypnosis, crowd psychology, all are used to bend the will of the contestants in this game of death.
The warning is written down in black and white. It shows how powerful agents are subliminally bending our wills.
Yes of course this is eerie.
I reckon I like this book nearly as much as I like the science fiction series “V” from the 1980’s. Basically both Suicide Game and V rock my world.
Think of the hordes of people who go to watch Super Bowl, Champions League, Heineken Cup, Premier League, la Liga. Yes it is mind numbing and it beggars belief. Think of the endless amount of Reality TV and the games that come from these shows. Think of the Talent Shows that are made of desperate people, desperately wanting fame. Think of how hooked people are to social media, to their mobile phones, to gaming, to being incapable of enjoying a concert without a mobile phone outstretched and video on play. Our world, is indeed a world of psychological and physical addictions, obsessions and compulsions, most of which are never even realized, never mind put under control.
Pause. Now think how are these people agents of social control?
Or- read “Suicide Game” and see this demonstrated in exciting narrative and story form.
If you like your fiction to make you think well "Suicide Game" will help you use your brain.
When I read a book of fiction I love to put my whole being into the reading experience. I did this with “Suicide Game” and unsurprisingly, given its nerve wrecking content, I was shivering when I was reading it, because I could feel what I thought she was getting at and what one could imagine the story could allude to. This is brilliant. When a writer can hook on to a persons inner emotional world than you know the writing is wonderful and the reading experience is truly amazing.
This novel helped me to think of the Suicide Games my own country of Ireland plays. In Ireland we are jumping up and down, up and down, repetitively, just like the contestants of Haidjis “Suicide Game,” and as some die from suicide, the games just go on. It is like a world of indifference. Ireland is a country where people have an enormous interest in sports. This is a sports obsessed island, a place where people love to gather in stadiums to watch and be spectators. It is a depressing morbid island, an Island that has one of the highest suicide rates in Europe. I think when so many kill themselves every year they are voting with their lives that this is a place that they do not want to live in, it is a country of misery and unhappiness. It is like we keep jumping up and down, drinking, laughing and forgetting about this harsh reality, because Ireland also has a huge problem with chronic alcoholism, drug consumption, but most happily of all- denial.
So you can see this novel was a great experience. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I reckon as a novel it also shows how hungry people are for fame. The author dances with the theme of what are the levels of ridiculousness people will engage in to become famous. The dance she creates is a discourse on how people are stringed along by forces more powerful than they can ever comprehend.
Who engineers these situations where a persons internal fantasies and ambitions are provided with a narrow window of opportunity, a one in several thousand chance that these dreams can become reality, and yet people still will follow regardless of the consequences.
A fantastic novel about how the hordes are driven to their own destruction. It is a book like “Sucide Game” that reminds us of how the likes of Adolf Hitler got into power and how power was maintained through mass brain washing and fear.

So much can be learnt by simply purchasing of “Suicide Game” by Haidji. A book that deserves to be read because it grabs you, it literally holds on to you and it will never let you go until the final page. A most exquisite reading experience.
