Reader review(s):

Great Online Fun!, June 8, 1999
This book was "fun" reading, simply put. It's fascinating to see how people relate to each other on the Internet! If you're looking for something relating to online romance which is light and easy to follow, this book is for you.

amusing, light reading!, April 30, 2004
seems to capture the heart of internet relationships but published somewhat before its time. the interviews are fascinating -- would love to see whether some of these relationships survived the long haul. can we expect a sequel soon?!

A waste of time!, April 6, 2004
This book is a waste of time. It is basically the authors' desire to see themselves in print through their own voyeurism. What a waste of trees for paper this wonder it was self published...can't imagine a reputable publisher that would have bothered with this book. Love can be found on the internet...but this was just junk writing. Good thing they didn't quit their day jobs...wannabe authors. Lousy attempt at being authors! Don't bother!

Total Trash, March 30, 2004
This book is a waste of time. It is obviously the authors' intent to exploit a sexual addiction and the internet happens to be another way of doing that. Pathetic writing. Don't bother! A waste of time! A bit of voyeurism at best. A total waste of the trees it took to publish this book. Obviously someone had a "dream" to be an author...and obviously publishing a book doesn't require much talent!
