Perfect balance of humor and a healthy dose of reality.
Samantha Cummings
It was to the point that I begun rooting for certain characters to succee over others.
Sherif
The book reveals the human side of the story of technology, and it's social impact.

This author certainly knows the dynamics of cell phones, social media, and relationships. I always enjoy a book that relates to my own life and this one most certainly does. In the midst of the smartphone and social media craze I think this book will capture most readers attention. I found it most entertaining how ridiculous some of the characters actions look written out on paper, but if you take a step back they aren't far from the current norm; social networking is out of control! This is a quick read for a good laugh, but I wouldn't understate the value that can be taken away from it by analyzing how social media is affecting your own personal life whether for better or worse.

Honestly, for using a blackberry, and being a new fan of social networking, I think it is totally speaking. We feel a real sense of observation with this target and perverse degrees can have these new phenomena. Where is the limit? This is the big question that arises Sara Marzougui through this book. I felt as much fun (probably more) than The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Wesbeirger. The characters are endearing and glaring truth, we identify ourselves immediately. In summary? Read it!

When I first decided to read this book I figured it was going to be some bitter angry rant about technology and cell phones. Since I'm a tech geek, and more so, a phone freak (I have both am iPhone and a blackberry) I figured it would not be a pleasant read. Fortunately, I was proven wrong. The character development is strong and I found myself loving and hating particular charachters. It was to the point that I begun rooting for certain characters to succee over others. Also, the multiple story lines with varying twists and turns kept me intrigued. It was extremely difficult to put the book down as I found myself anxiously trying to figure out what the end result would be for each character. Even the integration of how obsessed society has become with phones caught my attention. I'm not saying I would change, but it definitely got me thinking about how dependent I am on my phone and even how I've crossed the barrier into the "the rude, obnoxious person who doesn't get off the phone" zone from time to time. It definitely made me conscience about how I am with my phone on public. Finally, I found the book to be an easy read. I never got bored, the pages were always flying, and I never once felt that the writing got bogged down at any point. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I will be looking to read more upcoming material from the author. Overall, a great job

I was on a plane from Boston to London and I was planning to read a bit and then pass out on the plane, since I was extremely tired. I started reading "Life without it" and guess what? No matter how tired I was I couldn't stop reading. I just wanted to know what's next. There are multiple stories going on, some of them entangled, some of them completely independent, but I wanted to know how every single one of them would evolve. Needless to say I didn't sleep on the plane. Well organized and pleasant to read. I think most people who ever lived in cities like NYC and Boston can relate immediately.

Very entertaining. Read it!

This book makes you take a second look at how much we are defendant on technology and how much it can ruin your life and your relationships. I was also laughing all the way till the end because I can relate to almost every situation that the author presents. This book is worth reading. No one can live without their call phone and everyone is as addicted to the devices. We can't even turn off our phones for a flight, we need to feel connected 24/7. I am now more aware of how much I use my phone and I try to separate myself from it. I enjoyed this book very much.

Perfect balance of humor and a healthy dose of reality. This book will keep you laughing from beginning to end, due to the fact that we can all relate to at least one of these characters (even though you may not want to admit it). The author intricately weaves a tale of love, humor and heartache all brought on by social media. I keep this book with me at all times whenever I need to be reminded to put the phone down and live in the present.

To say I can relate would be an understatement. The author writes in a voice that is not only familiar but also very illuminating about our societal fascination with cell phones. It's hard to look at your own phone the same ever again, which I suppose would help us all put them down and reconnect with the people who really matter in a more personal way before it's too late. The characters are so funny and I'll be passing along to a few friends and cousins.
