This is one novella I will read again just for the joy of reading a delightful story.
If you're not on Twitter it might be hard to imagine five people who have never met except through short notes on the internet could become great friends and willing to do whatever it takes help one of their own is in trouble. I happen to be on Twitter and totally agree with this concept.
Kathy Lynn Hall's tale finds one of the group in real and dangerous trouble. The other four members of the group rush to his aid and go about plotting how to solve the problem of someone wanting their friend dead. The answer will surprise you.
The author does a great job of making this tale interesting, funny and a real page turner.
I highly recommend The Great Twitter Adventure to anyone who enjoys a good easy read.
It's an easy fun read and the story is told well. The language and pace suit the plot which develops seamlessly.
It's set firmly in the modern day with Twitter being the means by which the five disparate protagonists come together through following the tweets of Frank, a freelance writer and blogger who is also a conspiracy theorist. Very quickly they become `the fearless five'. When Frank disappears for several days and leaves hints that all may not be well the others physically meet for the first time with the intention of tracking him down.
This is a story of friendship with allusions to the Three Musketeers: all for one and one for all. At story end the friendship is well and truly cemented.
It's a short novella but the characters are nicely drawn and the budding alliances work well. Which is good, because the author presages sequels.
Frank is a investigator blogger that digs as deep if not deeper than most investigative reporters. It was his blog that brought five of them together. Eddy is a computer genius, an IT consultant, she loves hacking into high security networks for the fun of it. Dwayne is a pro golfer from Florida. Then there is Tex, he looks awful young, but the cowboy image really gets Maggie's motor running.
Maggie forwards am email to Eddy that Frank had sent her and told her to send to Eddy if he was off line for more than two days, with a note to call her. And so begins The Great Twitter Adventure. Eddy conferences Dwayne and Tex in on the call. They agree to meet the next day in LA. In this adventure, they are followed, everybody but Maggie brings guns to the party, they have to fund Frank's files, then Frank. With the help of a Former FBI agent they figure out who is following Frank, and maybe who the bad guts are too.
They find in person the same solid friendship that they had in cyber space, and maybe Maggie figures out 34 isn't to old for Arizionian Tex. Great read, I think I read it in a couple hours, couldn't put it down! Must pick it up if you have ever been on twitter, or wondered what twitter was about.
