Friend Me By John Faubion Blog Tour and Book Review



My Review:

Friend Me was an enjoyable fiction novel that could easily become true in today’s times. I liked how the plot presented the dangers of technology and how virtual friend online software could be the next social media outbreak. I can see how people are turning more and more to technology and the internet than into engaging in person to person conversations. This novel was a little frightening it because it could cause our marriages and relationships with friends to be replaced with creating our own perfect person online. I enjoyed how much suspense John Faubion included and the way he portrayed the character Melissa was just plain eerie. The book makes me even more determined to protect my future marriage and to appreciate my friendships even in more depth. It’s terrifying that in the future you might have to safe guard your marriage from virtual creations. If you’re looking for a book that will keep you engaged and on the edge of your seat, then read this book!

About the book: When a lonely wife and her frustrated husband each secretly pursue companionship online, neither dreams that a real woman is behind their virtual creations, threatening their marriage---and their lives.

Scott and Rachel's marriage is on the brink of disaster. Scott, a businessman with a high-pressure job, just wants Rachel to understand him and accept his flaws. Rachel is a lonely housewife, desperate for attention and friendship. So she decides to create a virtual friend online, unaware that Scott is doing the exact same thing. As Rachel desperately tries to re-create a friendship with a friend who has passed, Scott becomes unfaithful and is torn between the love for his wife and the perfection of his cyber-girlfriend. But neither realizes that there's a much larger problem looming . . .

Behind both of their online creations is Melissa, a woman who is brilliant---and totally insane. Masquerading as both friend and lover, Melissa programmed a search parameter into the virtual friend software to find her perfect man, but along the way she forgot to specify his marriage status. And Scott is her ideal match. Now Melissa is determined to have it all---Scott, his family, and Rachel's life.

As Melissa grows bolder and her online manipulations transition into the real world, Scott and Rachel figure out they are being played. Now it's a race against time as Scott and Rachel fight to save their marriage, and their lives, before it's too late.

In today's digital age, the Internet presents all kinds of opportunities to test our personal boundaries, and this exciting and suspenseful story raises important questions about the ethics of virtual relationships. Friend Me will open your eyes to a new---and terrifying---moral dimensions and how they play out in the real world.
