Friend Me Book Review


About the Book

“She isn’t real. . . right?”

A lonely wife and a frustrated husband create virtual online friends, trying to deal with the pressures of a marriage gone flat, and a high-pressure job.

Torn between his love for his wife, and the perfection of his virtual girlfriend, he becomes unfaithful.

Neither dream that behind the screen is a single real woman, masquerading both as friend and lover. She is determined to have the man for herself, so his wife must die.

Christian suspense at its best. (Goodreads)

My Review

 I got this book because I needed something different to read. I knew it could go either way: good or terrible. I went into it with an open mind, as the computer relationship has become a big thing that seems to cause problems in real life. While I definitely disagree that a relationship with a fake person on the computer I can see how it really would effect people. 
Sadly, this book was really not very good. Basically this company has made is possible for people to create people online. So people who have died they can recreate them so it feels like they are still around. This takes hold in the lives of married couple Rachel and Scott as they start online relationships. Now the person on the other side of the computer really does fall in love with Scott and causes many problems. 
The story twists and the couple figure out what is going on. Needless to say the ending is rather odd to me and not what I was expecting. The entire story line did not hold my attention, neither did the characters. I wish that wasn't the case but I really can't recommend this book.
