Identity Theft

By Laura Lee

Publisher: Elsewhere Press

Genre: Fiction

Book Description

When the rock star she idolized responded to her e-mail, Candi was thrilled. When he started to flirt with her, she thought all her dreams could come true. The fantasy takes over her entire life, but none of it is true. The man of her dreams is not a rock star at all, but a bored office worker whose internet game quickly spins out of control.

Laura Lee’s second novel, Identity Theft, is now available. It is a humorous, thought-provoking examination of the state of the self in the 21st Century full of surprising plot twists.

It explores celebrity, online relationships, the loss of professional identity that comes with insecure employment and how inner reality is often at odds with outer image.

BOOK REVIEW: 

The cover had me intrigued that’s why I decided to give it a try. 🙂

I completely agree with how the book visualized things that some people don’t know happens on the online world. People get obsessed with it, maybe up to the point wherein what they share is a form of deception. So much that even the main character (Candi) found herself in an unimaginable position she hadn’t considered possible at all.

The characters were well represented and their personalities were all clearly presented, making it seem like the readers knew the characters very well for a long time. It clearly amazes me how authors think of a story and turn it into something very useful and educational, and I’m thankful for books that bravely and boldly discusses complex topics.

The book is a very simple read, not only it entertains us, but it very well informs us of the current and important issues of today. 🙂
