Nat Idle, a San Francisco writer with a medical degree, narrowly survives an explosion in an Internet café after a stranger hands him a note warning him to exit immediately. The handwriting on the note belongs to his deceased girlfriend, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist whom he has obsessively been mourning.

So begins Hooked, a pop thriller for the digital age, narrated with the force and the pace of an intimate email dispatch you can’t stop reading. Each chapter of this novel will keep listeners hooked as Nat Idle searches for the love of his life in the midst of manipulation and conspiracy.
Just as previous generations were influenced by movies, today we are becoming hooked on Internet technology, which is changing the way we read, think, and dream. Hooked vividly illustrates how technology is turning us into a national of addicts. It will make you rethink your relationship with your computer and your mobile phone.

    " There were some fun concepts in it and it was interesting enough that I finished the entire thing, but I didn't love it. I found the most interesting thing about it is that the audiobook was narrated by Kirby Heyborne, then when I looked at the other audiobook I checked out it was also narrated by Kirby Heyborne! Two in one shot without meaning to. I didn't finish the other one. "

    " Loving Matt Richtel's writing. He knows how to set a scene, you can feel the bar, the clink of ice in the glasses. Characters are developed very nicely. Can't say enough great stuff about this book. "
