Publisher's Summary

From New York Times journalist and syndicated comic-strip creator Matt Richtel, Hooked is a visionary thriller for the digital era - and a novel about life, love, and high-tech intrigue on the Left Coast.

When medical journalist Nat Idle narrowly survives an explosion in an Internet cafe after receiving a mysterious note warning him to leave immediately, he becomes enmeshed in the most dangerous assignment of his life. Nat believes that the handwriting on the lifesaving note belongs to his deceased girlfriend, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist he has been obsessively mourning. And so begins a fevered quest to solve the mystery of his lost love. The journey forces him to confront the underbelly of the digital revolution and question his own sanity.

Matt Richtel's first novel will leave you "hooked" at the end of every chapter. His thriller about love and other addictions is itself a compulsive listening experience, fueled by adrenaline and suspense and influenced by the pace and attitude of the Internet. It is a tour de force of romance and deception, and a haunting commentary on the impact new addictions are having on our lives.

    oops, in my previous review, I meant "fiction," not "non-fiction"

    "Hold On...It gets better!"

    The beginning of the book is fast paced at first and then it does seem to have some trouble holding your attention towards the middle of the book. But, ... it does liven up and get really good at the end. Overall, I think it was a great book and highly reccomend it to my friends.

    "Drags"

    I don't even want to finish this book. A waste of time and a waste of money. The writing/plotting is not strong or interesting and the reader is a complete mismatch for the voice of the hero.
