I picked this book up at my local Borders before it closed. I was intrigued by the idea of a Twitter based romance and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the format worked. The book consists of twitter conversations with some narrative built around it. I thought that it might be annoying to read a book structured that way, but it wasn’t at all. The humor would not have worked as well had it been traditionally written, and those of you that are on Twitter will appreciate it.
The story itself is very sweet. Abby is a little lost after the success of her first book and is stuck on Chapter 5 of her second book. When she meets Mark on Twitter, their sense of humor connects them and through their tweets you slowly get to know who they both are. When Mark finally reveals the reality of his life, the book takes a very touching turn. This was a light and easy read with a unique structure and a very sweet story. I gave it 3.5 stars.
