Book Review Update – December 2019

GOSSIP, RUMOUR, REVENGE…

Second Sister by author Chan Ho-Kei. I am quite excited to read this because this book deals with a few topics I am very passionate about and interested in – cyberbullying and cybersecurity.

GOSSIP, RUMOUR, REVENGE…

Second Sister by author Chan Ho-Kei. I am quite excited to read this because this book deals with a few topics I am very passionate about and interested in – cyberbullying and cybersecurity. The story begins with a young woman named Nga-Yee who has her world turned upside down with the sudden and very unexpected suicide of her younger sister, Siu-Man. Nga-Yee is adamant that her sister would never commit suicide and begins her own investigation into the events that led up to her sister’s untimely death. What she discovers leads her to a hacker she knows only by his first initial, N. And you’ll just have to either read the book yourself or wait for my review for the rest!

I also discovered that this book has another title and different cover art as well. This version of the book is called “In the Net”with a pretty blue and white cover:

The second book on my review list is “Lurking – How a Person Became a User”by author Joanne McNeil. Here is part of the synopsis from Goodreads:

In Lurking, Joanne McNeil digs deep and identifies the primary (if sometimes contradictory) concerns of people online: searching, safety, privacy, identity, community, anonymity, and visibility. She charts what it is that brought people online and what keeps us here even as the social equations of digital life—what we’re made to trade, knowingly or otherwise, for the benefits of the internet—have shifted radically beneath us. It is a story we are accustomed to hearing as tales of entrepreneurs and visionaries and dynamic and powerful corporations, but there is a more profound, intimate story that hasn’t yet been told.

Doesn’t that sound amazingly interesting? I can’t wait to review/read it and share it here with you all.
