It was interesting to me to find out that chat rooms are pretty much all the same, only the screen names are different.When I started reading this, I recalled different characters I'd come across in my earlier chatting days.He talked about how he first met his wife, a little girl he once knew, and some sexual "fantasies" involving Lisa. I became addicted and was talking to people across the United States that I would never meet. It's also true how many of them want to "cyber." So, I think that this author caught that environment quite well.(Those did the job for me as well.)A previous reviewer talked about how the conversations in the book were based on stereotypes. So many strangers, that I can't even remember the names now. Why I didn't give it more stars: I didn't like how it ended. Maybe this is not the authors fault, but where was the editor?Tayser Abuhamdeh doesn’t have what most people would call an exciting job. “Eventually I started opening up, saying random things, telling jokes and laughing at my own jokes.He works behind the counter at a deli in Brooklyn, a small shop that does a brisk business in snacks, coffee, and cigarettes. I started to act like people were there watching, and that’s when they showed up.” Abuhamdeh’s routine was subtle.
The reason that I gave it as many stars as I did: I really liked the email stories, particularly the ones that Tag wrote Lisa.
There is not one phone or face to face conversation throughout.) He starts to fall for her. Neither one knows what the other looks like, has eachother's address, or phone number.
All of it is very annonymous and impersonal, except where the cyber-sex is concerned.
I was looking forward to seeing what happened (and I was imagining all of the things that COULD happen) but it didn't work. They were little things, but not little enough for me not to notice.
All in all, I liked how all of the things you thought about the characters at the beginning, did a 180 at the end.
