Novel Written Entirely in Text Messages Released in Finland

By LJ Staff

In what may be the ultimate ebook, and surely the 21st century spin on the epistolary novel, Finnish author Hannu Luntiala has released a 322-page novel which unfolds entirely through a series of text messages by the protagonist. According to the Associated Press, the plot of The Last Messages follows a tech-company executive who quits his job and travels through Europe where he apprises his friends of his adventures through text messages (about 1000 in all).
