5.0 out of 5 stars This book surprised me!March 28, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First, by way of full disclosure, I must admit that the author and I were friends in high school. In fact, Facebook is the means by which we have rekindled our friendship. I even have the honor of one of my silly status posts being quoted in the book.
That being said, I kind of expected a light-hearted, quirky story. I was surprised to instead read a book that worked on so many different levels and contained a lot of depth. Many things are going on here and the pace is, at times, riveting. Death by Facebook is a crime drama, a story about youthful angst, aging hippies in touch with Mother Earth, earthquakes, tsunamis, a major volcano eruption, an action thriller and a great story of emotional awakening and redemption; all on the Big Island of Hawaii. Plus, I don't remember the last time I read a book with first person narrative being delivered by a recently deceased person (who didn't seem at all upset about it). I highly recommend it!
