“The power that each of us has over complete strangers to make them feel terrible and and frightened and weak is amazing.”

Social media can be ugly: this book communicates that well. The power we give over people we don’t know – or even giving weight to their comments – can be debilitating.
I could have done without that ending: say no too cliffhangers. It’s like you are forcing me to read your next book: let me make that decision on my own.
My friend who gifted me the book asked if I liked it. I was at the 70% mark and responded as such: Yes and maybe. The concept of social media, fame, importance we put on things w/o thinking etc. was a cool mssg. I just dont know about the Carl thing.
I think my teenage nephew would like it, so I am going to send the book to him for his feedback.
