This book was almost life changing for me. Easy to read and humorous. Would recommend for people who love romance books that are real and easy to relate to, but not too cheesy. Love love love.

This book had really likable and quirky characters. It had a similar feel to the film "Eternal Sunshine" but in a more comedic way. It was fun to read, was imaginative, and made me think too. It's a great debut novel and worth checking out!

I cannot say enough good things about this book! In addition to the original premise, Sherl's writing style is entirely approachable and hysterically funny. Despite a summary that seems to paint the story as a romance, this book is truly a comedy with wry and funny observations about current technology and life, and it easily appeals to both male and female readers. I laughed aloud as I read this book in the airport. The characters are easy to identify with and root for - charming and flawed in equal measures. Sherl makes the near-future that he speaks of seem completely plausible. Full marks for this novel!
