Love And Miss Communication
Evie Rosen. In her 30’s. Anticipating making partner at her law firm. Has great friends. Single (a fact that is driving her grandmother to worry about Evie’s future).
When Evie is called into a meeting, she assumes that it’s news related to her potential move up to partner.
Evie gets a wake-up call and then decides to do something drastic…….
Saying “no” to the internet.
Evie is going to see how life is when she has to make real connections with people by using her connections in the real and breathing world- no Google-stalking, no checking out her ex-boyfriend, no compulsively trying to showcase her “best” looks on online dating sites.
For someone who is addicted to all forms of social media- it’s going to be tough. But, Evie thinks she can do it. Now, the question is- what will she learn in her internet hiatus? And will her friends still be around if she’s not around to “like”, “retweet” or share all their news in real-time updates on the wide world of the internet?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
First, I LOVED the concept that Elyssa Friedland takes with her book LOVE AND MISS COMMUNICATION. Giving up the internet is such a novel concept!
Second, the cover and the images on the first chapter- LOVE.
Evie is an interesting character-she’s a work in progress, she can be unlikeable at times- and yet, you can see that she has so many good things about her. That if she’ll just trust herself, feel free to be herself- she would be unstoppable.
Evie’s grandmother- loved her. Demanding- but ultimately just wanting the best for Evie; for Evie to be the best version of herself.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was a bit slow at times and I think could have been trimmed a few pages; but def worth a read.
Bottom line: Bonus points for originality and a nice debut. Will be curious to see where Elyssa Friedland takes her readers next.
