Review: Friend Request by David Wailing
Wailing does it again!! Once again David Wailing surpasses expectation with this imaginative short story, utilising his now-familiar dystopian future world of the 2020's, where everyone is connected, 24/7.
With some nice nods to his previous books (including Fake Kate), David narrates a fast-paced story, at times geeky, but with enough detail to get even the non-computer literate to understand what exactly is happening.
Though presented as a good thing, what happens when 'being connected' means that all your friends know everything about you? And I do mean everything! Presenting yourself as a loyal, faithful partner, when in reality you are a thrill-seeking pervert, well this is the context of David Wailing's new short, Friend Request. A real roller coaster story, and one which leaves you asking for more.
