There are some really funny parts in this book. I enjoyed it from start to finish, especially as I'm a Facebook Whore - the same as the lead character. Although the plot isn't ground-breakingly original, it takes the familiar theme to a new level by basing it around Facebook and most peoples' obsession with sharing their info and broadcasting their thoughts. Definitely recommended.

Awful

The idea was interesting but the execution was an epic fail. If I was not distracted by the multitude of typos and grammatical errors, I was trying to figure out how certain parts were remotely relative. If this is what passes for literature today, I will stick with ...
The idea was interesting but the execution was an epic fail. If I was not distracted by the multitude of typos and grammatical errors, I was trying to figure out how certain parts were remotely relative. If this is what passes for literature today, I will stick with the classics!

    Interesting story line!

    Very enjoyable book, fast paced and I was positively surprised. The internet and social media can be a good or bad thing. This story will get you to thinking about what is out there and what can happen with shared information. I would recommend this book.

    Be careful who you request

    A very "real" out look in our social network lives. Do you truly know all if your facebook friends even if you have 1,000 or + friends? All your information is at there in the world wide web for the taking- as well as for the manipulating back- stabing people. Being guilty of the facebook culture- this book gives you a semi realistic outlook on what could happen when your live is out in the open for all.... Do you accept or ignore .

    Easy and enjoyable read. A Worthwhile Read

    I downloaded this book to read while on a beach holiday. A nice easy read, entertaining, amusing, topical and with a good amount of drama and intrigue. Believable characters and a good plot
