‘An exceptionally funny, well-observed and street-smart book, as self-aware as it is sensitive. The dialogue is as authentic as any I’ve read this year, almost as if Tyte has secretly recorded conversations and simply transcribed them word for word… If critics do their jobs and seek it out, it should win lots of awards.’ Jane Graham, The Big Issue
‘A really interesting little book about a guy whose life is so damaged by social media that he goes completely offline, turning into a weird kind of Truman Show thing. It’s so well written, it’s funny, it’s intelligent. I really hope this book catapults him to fame.’ The Afternoon Show, BBC Radio Scotland
‘Brilliant, clever writing. A must-read.’ Buzz Magazine
‘A deeply engaging read. Not only does Tyte capture Gerard’s online life in believable detail, he also writes cracking dialogue. These are rounded, believable characters portrayed with warmth.’ Western Mail
