    One thought on “Indexed: The end of social media”

    1. Just finished reading “Indexed: The End of Social Media” by Wim Verveen. I try to as honest as I can when I do my reviews, and usually can find some redeeming quality to say about a book, and that it was worth the time and effort. In this case I’m afraid I cannot do that. I have a rule that if I start a book I will finish it no matter how I feel about it. There are times that halfway through a book that I was having a hard time understanding that the story came together and I was glad I hu [...]

    2. I was sent this book to review. The premise sounded interesting; the reality was the book was not. The writing and storyline is so bad I would have thrown it in the bin had I not been expected to review it for being sent a free copy. Are you a teenager, Vim, because you write like one? The attempts at describing sexual encounters are embarrassingly bad and the storyline implausible and, by the way, you cook with flour not flower!!!! An author to put on my 'avoid' list.

    3. Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE cellular phones. And yes, hate is a strong word, but in a world where having friends no longer means being there for someone in person and instead means texting them a quick and meaningless acronym over a phone, I won't become one of those zombies who think cellular phones and social media are necessary for communication. I don't have a phone, don't need one, and I've always wondered what digital technology has really done for the world, or if it's rather ju [...]

    4. Wel een verhaal van het einde van de beschaving door een computer die superintelligent wordt en via zijn programma alle smartphone gebruikers doet verdwijnen en opneemt in zijn geheugenbanken. Dit is meteen ook het zwakste stuk A beautiful book although i didn't see the connection between the cover and its contents. What is it all about then? It is an end-of-the-world or last-man-on-earth story. Of course not really the end of the world and not really the last man on earth, otherwise this would [...]

    5. Received through a Giveaway.I made it to about page 80 before I had to give up, which is really frustrating because there is an interesting premise here, but I just can't handle wading through all the flaws in this narrative to see it through.The best version of this book does at least the following three things:1. Pays a lot less attention to its character's sex lives and more time on their actual characters.2. Sorts out its chronology in such a way that it does not take nearly as much effort [...]

    6. 1.5/5. I received a free copy of this book via the giveaway."Indexed" takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where technology/cell phones (not exactly social media, as per the title) have destroyed humanity. What starts as a survival story quickly unravels and shows the characters attempting to rebuild society. While this premise was interesting, the execution fell horribly flat. First, the author really never explains how the technology destroyed everything and made people "disappear". The co [...]

    7. I read this book as part of a Book of the Month Club run by a community of other authors.I enjoyed the concept of the book and it does give you food for thought regarding how dependant society is on technology. The idea of technology taking over was interesting.I am not going to pick faults in the formatting and editing of the book because I know this is being rectified at the moment. I will say though, it made the book difficult to read and I struggled to engage in the story as a result of the [...]

    8. Win CopyCould you live without technology? No telephones connecting to you social media and computers.

A few people meet by chance as they band together to survive by working together. As their group become bigger they find a way to make things work.Story looks at how dependent we have become addicted to technology but deep down we will find a way to s [...]

    9. I got a free copy of this book to review it. The topic of the book seemed promising. Sadly it didn't rise to my expectations. It is written like a disaster movie with quickly changing scenes. The depiction of women was what I disliked most. I still can't think of anyone who would behave like this. In addition I didn't like the style of writing or the characters. I thought the plot was ridiculous at many parts of the book.

    10. I did not enjoy this book, the concept is so unrealistic, if mobile phones were the cause of all problems the people who would be left would be 70,80 and 90 year olds, who only have their phones for an emergency and rarely look at them. Also can't believe that although there is snow on the ground very few people wear any underwear and are quite willing to have sex with anyone, anywhere or at any time.Just so unbelievable.

    11. I think think the overall premise of the book was very interesting. Noticed the previous review about the sex scenes. I think this may be the wrong genre for that. It covered a topic that is scary for most people to think about. Would read more from this author, if I can put down my cell phone/tablet/etc

    12. GOODWhat a delightful story. It held me captive from the first page thru to the last. This tales uniqueness, in the genre it belongs to, causes the reader to pause in thoughtful speculation asking oneself, could this actually happen one day? God help us all if it does one day happen. That's all I can say. God help us all!

    13. The book is recently edited and the writing is improved. There has been a lot of research in what happens on earth when humans are out of the equation. The writing style is unusual for the type of books and definitely European

    14. I found "Indexed: The end of social media" this to be an interesting and entertaining read. I won this great book on GoodReads and like I do with most my wins I will be paying it forward by giving my win either to a friend or library to enjoy.

    15. This was an interesting and new look at the post apocalyptic genre, I would recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves drawn to this type of book.
