Just finished Death by Facebook... AWESOME Read man! I loved the story. When they make the movie I want Sean Connery to play that extremely cool character Pat Kemp!!!
Great mix of Hawaii, Volcanos, great characters and a really interesting and captivating story line. --Amazon.com US, March 1, 2011

First, by way of full disclosure, I must admit that the author and I were friends in high school. In fact, Facebook is the means by which we have rekindled our friendship. I even have the honor of one of my silly status posts being quoted in the book.
That being said, I kind of expected a light-hearted, quirky story. I was surprised to instead read a book that worked on so many different levels and contained a lot of depth. Many things are going on here and the pace is, at times, riveting. Death by Facebook is a crime drama, a story about youthful angst, aging hippies in touch with Mother Earth, earthquakes, tsunamis, a major volcano eruption, an action thriller and a great story of emotional awakening and redemption; all on the Big Island of Hawaii. Plus, I don't remember the last time I read a book with first person narrative being delivered by a recently deceased person (who didn't seem at all upset about it). I highly recommend it! --Amazon.com US, March 28, 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative, fun, quirky story set on the Big Island of Hawaii, March 22, 2011

This review is from: Death by Facebook (Paperback)
It is a wildly inventive story about love, madness, friendship, hippies, tsunamis, murder and the great hereafter all in a vivid tropical setting. It is funny, fascinating and touching. If you have never been to the Big Island, this book will make you want to go. If you have been there, this will make you feel like you have returned. The perfect book for a hammock and a tall drink. --Amazon.com US, March 22, 2011

It seems to me that his writing has something for everyone. There is great intrigue,action, information, description, movement, feeling,depth, philosophy, physics and meta-physics to capture anyone's attention. And all written in an easy, uncluttered flow that left me feeling like I am a local. Truly a great book for our times. I could hardly wait to read it all as I went along, and didn't want it to end also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, goes off track 2 Mar 2012
By djf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book starts with an interesting premise - how Facebook connects people, and to what extent can and should things be posted online.

The style and tack which the book takes are unusual, and initially interesting, however after a promising start, the book descends into a bizarre and unrelated tale, completely disregarding the title and the opening premise.

Fans of mysticism and hippy culture, or people with an affinity with the location might be held by the second half of the book, but I found that the writing descended into farce, and the narrative failed to hold my attention.

I would be disappointed had I paid for this, but it was just interesting enough to make me whizz through to the (somewhat disappointing) end. 5/10

1.0 out of 5 stars I didnt get it 13 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This books starts out as one story and then decends into something else. The writing style is so confusing and there doesnt seem to be any purpose to it. Very strange and I didnt finish it because it became so ridiculous and down right bizarre. Not to bothered as I didnt pay for it but would not have been impressed if I had.

2.0 out of 5 stars Death by odd book! 5 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My husband claims I'm addicted to facebook so when I found this book on the free download list I just had to have it. It took me a while to be in the mood for reading it and I was disappointed from the start to be honest.

I was expecting the book to be about facebook, and really it barely gets a mention! The story is centered around a couple called Jimmy and Janet and starts off with Janet pushing Jimmy into a lava pool when on holiday in Hawaii. From this point on it goes from the sublime to the ridiculous.

I have to say I didn't enjoy this story from the point that Janet hacks into her now dead Fiance's facebook and posts a status update of 'I'm dead' and then goes on a drunken bender. Parts of the story are so predictable it's yet further disappointment and other parts so far fetched that it's very hard to connect with any of the characters.

The story seemed to be split off into other little stories introducing more characters and more weird side-stories that did match in with the main story but at the same time felt like the story was losing it's way. The end of this book was odd and didn't quite tie up all the lose ends.

I wouldn't know where to start with putting this into a genre, I guess it's slightly 'who-dun-it' where you know who did it from the start, slightly 'mother earth/hippy' towards the end. It certainly wasn't my type of book, I did persevere with it and finished it but it took me a week reading on and off, at no point was I really compelled to find out what happens next, I'm very stubborn and hate to leave books unfinished even if they are free. There were a fair amount of spelling/grammatical errors in this story although they didn't detract from the story too much. I'm not sure who would enjoy this story, maybe people who love hawaii and could connect with the story from that point of view?

Poor story, poor characters, dreadful grammar and punctuation.

Look for something else as this book will only disappoint you by the time you finish it.

3.0 out of 5 stars More romance than thriller 4 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little more of a romance than I was expecting and a slightly strange tale. Sometimes I'm not sure if it knows what it wants to be, though the volcanic action towards the end read well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four stars 4 Sep 2012
By Danie
Format:Kindle Edition
Another easy to read tale from EP. While the events are in stark contrast to his writing of laid back Hawaiian bars the people are still made of the same stuff and their acceptance of life alongside their resoluteness to be masters of their own destiny is inspiring.
