This book had really likable and quirky characters. It had a similar feel to the film "Eternal Sunshine" but in a more comedic way. It was fun to read, was imaginative, and made me think too. It's a great debut novel and worth checking out!

I cannot say enough good things about this book! In addition to the original premise, Sherl's writing style is entirely approachable and hysterically funny. Despite a summary that seems to paint the story as a romance, this book is truly a comedy with wry and funny observations about current technology and life, and it easily appeals to both male and female readers. I laughed aloud as I read this book in the airport. The characters are easy to identify with and root for - charming and flawed in equal measures. Sherl makes the near-future that he speaks of seem completely plausible. Full marks for this novel!
