This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.

 


 

Hey, dig! Ja, dig der står med bogen.  Vi ved hvem du er!
Yeah right, tænker du, men det er rigtigt. Bogen indeholder en microchip der snakker sammen med din Facebook-app, så vi ved hvem du er. Nej, du kan ikke finde den.
Okay, tænker du. Og hvad så? Så læs den her bog.
Hvis ikke du gør det, har vi en Facebook-gruppe
med 2000 medlemmer der sviner dig til på nettet.
Vi skræddersyr naturligvis vores løgnehistorie lige ­præcis til dig!
Måske skriver vi at du har været sammen med én du absolut ikke har været sammen med.
Måske at du har stjålet. Eller at du har snydt til en vigtig prøve.
Men det er ikke rigtigt, tænker du? Ingen vil tro på det.
2000 delinger og likes får alle til at tro på det. Og ingen fakta tjekker den slags.

Er du klar til en shitstorm?
Hvis ikke, så læs bogen. Så skal vi vise dig hvad man virkelig kan gøre på nettet.

 


 

This is a book by a Danish author and is currently only available in Danish.

 

It took me about two hours or so to finish book and I was entertained all the way through. I didn’t find it particular realistic but it did juggle some important themes. Our main character Jonas is a little too smart in my world; however, he was entertaining to get to know.

Shitstorm is about a teenage group of people roaming the internet. Being teenagers we follow, it addresses the younger audience, whilst elder people can enjoy it, I’d still say that it’s more relevant for teens. The book is very easy to read and the language flows naturally. Even though the book is short, we still get a sense of whom the characters are. I think everyone will be able to recognize these characters as people in the real world you know or have known.

I’d recommend this book for usage in schools and awake more awareness of the problems you can create on the internet, it may not even be intentional, but as Jonas showed us, words on the internet are forever!

Read it if you’re at all interested in the YA genre. Decent book that makes you think!
