Krishna Krishna said: " I did read many reviews here, though I do not want to read this book, having sampled a book of the writer.
I am of the view that people deserve the books they read and hate. Like the one with so many negative reviews.

“Kissing can ruin lives. Lips touch sometimes teeth clash. New hunger is born with a throb and caution falls away.

“A song that became popular on YouTube in 2010, ‘Do You Want to Date My Avatar?’ ends with the lyrics ‘And if you think I’m not the one, log off, log off, and we’ll be done.’ ”

from a review of Alone Together by S. Turkle”
