Free Love (True Stories of Love And Lust On The Internet) by Thomas Kelleher is an honest and candid selection of anonymous stories about online dating. All of the stories are true and are filled with hopes of finding someone special by chance on the internet. The unpredictability involved in online dating and the frustration when there is no connection is an interesting topic. As well as the satisfaction of finding the "the right one".
At first glance, the cover and interior of the book did not capture my attention as it somewhat made the book appear dull. As there is but a computer-like "smiley face" on the cover and abstract colors in the background almost like abstract art.
The images in the interior of the book are the same - abstract and colorful. It plays somewhat to the imagination.
Once you start reading the book, it is very entertaining as it is very direct and honest. What I appreciate the most about the book is the non-traditional approach to reality writing, especially on the topic of internet dating. And I also appreciate the many humorous stories that made me smile and even blush from the candid topics about sexuality when people meet online.
This book is for anyone, including myself who have ever dated anyone from the internet and maybe perhaps realize that maybe your experience was not all that bad. As well as a refreshing look at how things can go right from online dating but also how things can go terribly wrong as well. As it is well known in today's society, reality is much more interesting sometimes, especially when it is in a book.
