In a novel that begins with a hacker leaving sexual comments on a childrens web site, and culminates with a forum full of people jeering at the Americans who jumped to their deaths from the World Trade Center, its easy to wonder what the point was.MoreIn a novel that begins with a hacker leaving sexual comments on a childrens web site, and culminates with a forum full of people jeering at the Americans who jumped to their deaths from the World Trade Center, its easy to wonder what the point was.

And indeed, point is arguable in a story as unsettling as this- but its central conceit -- barely related -- is no less chilling. This is a novel that had to be published online, and had to be published anonymously: An unnamed narrator slowly reveals his obsessions for a teenage minor, confessing in parts how much he really knows about her, her classmates, and where she lives.

The narrative hums with authenticity chiefly because its so disjointed, with chapters numbered in reverse, paragraphs that cut off in mid-sentence, supposed clues as to his identity sprinkled throughout, and a portrait of a life so fractured and lonely that the last page would come as a relief were it not for its implications.

So is this thing for real? Is a young woman somewhere in danger? Some aspects of the tale imply that this guy -- for hes almost surely male -- has not been 100% honest with readers. But whether theyre left disgusted or vaguely heartbroken, hes a voice not easily forgotten. This one-of-a-kind book is not for all tastes or the faint of heart. -- This text relates to the original lulu.com edition.
