“When they ordered Chinese food, Floss let Orla have both fortune cookies.” 💙

Very relevant topic and quite funny to be reviewing this on social media, as one of the themes of this book is about society and social media. It’s a book that makes us question how social media will play a part in our lives in the future. It’s kind of Big Brother reality tv mixed with social media outlets like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook. I really liked the extreme scenario of all or nothing in terms of technology. What would you choose? The character development was a bit lacking for me and the dual timelines weren’t always the easiest to follow. With characters in both the past and present, it took some concentration to stay focused. In a culture that’s always looking for more likes and more followers as a way to validate experiences, I liked that this book raised the question of what price are we willing to pay for those likes? Always fun to read along with marieclairemag 💙

  1. It is a bit ironic to be having a conversation about this book on social media. 😂 I’m not quite done, I should finish up today. It has been a little slow for me, even though I think the story is really ambitious and is full of themes that are worth exploring. I’m interested to see how things tie up!
