Last Seen Online is being marketed as real time fiction for the WhatsApp generation, and you can see why. First of all it’s an app. Yes, you read right. It’s actually an app rather than a traditional digital book. The premise of Last Seen Online is a simple one: Amy Morris has gone missing and you have her phone. The story is told over 7 days in real time though a series of messages delievered to her phone. You read the action as it unfolds from the familiar format of an instand messager. Sounds interesting right?!
As this isn’t a traditional book, I’m not doing a traditional review. Instead here are my thoughts – also recorded in real time – over the 7 days of Last Seen Online.
