The novella has been described as a ...deliciously quirky little book and has been said to display the often vacuous existence of the social media generation: snapshot news: success reflected by volumes of followers, re tweets and likes, a dinner party where people text each other instead of talk, families who gather by Face Time. However, as well as reflecting the evolution of the way we communicate with each other and a potentially bleak glance at contemporary society, the book offers a darkly funny and satirical take on the way in which we live, ultimately throwing up a number of questions: Will the second novel ever be completed?

Will he reach 1000 followers? Will the skinny jeans he won on E bay ever show up? Will Wrexham FC get promotion? Did Margaret Thatcher deserve a 10 million funeral? Is there hope for his generation? Will the North Korean President (who he swears he went to school with), succeed in blowing up the world - making all these questions, ultimately futile?
