This one had me rolling! This book is written in a exchange of chatroom messages, private messages, and emails. The only insight given about the characters are through these internet exchanges. That is all the audience receives, that's the only way we get to know the characters. I like this perspective because it's how the other characters in story receive their information, or how anyone on the internet learns about someone - through text. We had the same experience as the characters in the sto ...more

My boyfriend gave me this book as a gift. The story is very narrow and the characters are not enticing to imagine especially lisa. But I felt sorry for her life is so doomed caused by wrong decisions, more over when she decides to give up her life to pursue the guy she met online. But it just don't happen in the real world that the guy who has a decent job, wife and children would give up everything for a girl like lisa who also has a child not to mention the abusive ex husband. I will not forge ...more

I picked this up because I am interested in books that tell stories in a non-traditional form. The chat and e-mail form was interesting, but the story itself wasn't anything special - basically just a look at sex and relationships in the internet age.

Quite racy, but ultimately pretty dated tale of chat room antics in 1999. The theme of changing one's identity to be whoever you want to be online felt slightly tired, but there were still a couple of good surprises and it was a fun, quick read.

what i learned from this book?
I learned that if you dont take that chance then you wont meet that nice guy who cleans your house cooks dinner for you and basically loves you unconditionally...

too bad stupid Lisa33 didnt learn that..
A bit on the racy side, it borders on the length that people take just to escape their own reality. Lisa33 is an escape, but how long could it be used as that? Dan Allan just managed to answer that query.
Anyone who has ever done any online chatting would enjoy this book, I think. The first page had me laughing out loud. Literally! I almost want to read it again. Almost. Maybe one day...
mildly entertaining as it reminds me of those old days back on IRC in #smashingpumpkins ... but ultimately the story is as pointless as the faux relationships we all had.

I thought this book was better than most of the other reviews claimed. It was actually funny from the first page forward. I'd even consider reading it again.

Recommends it for: chat addicts
I bought this book because it's one of a kind. Not much paragraphs, only chats, email threads and cyber s. Haven't finished it yet.
Very quick reading, and a little more explicit than I was expecting. Interesting. The outcome seemed about right to me.

Recommends it for: no one
Two people meet in an online chat room and start having an online affair.
The depictions of women in this book offended me.
