`My Adventures in Cyberspace' not only offers the reader an alluring title but slowly, leads them down an emotional rollercoaster. This unusual romance is initiated in cyberspace, however it is only when the writer begins to unveil some incredibly descriptive and painful passages, that the reader can become totally absorbed in this heart rending story. Whether or not this book is autobiographical, I am unsure but my guess is that it would be hard to conjure up such a story without some personal experience.
Dominique's story starts around the time of her parents' divorce. One cannot help but despise Dominique's father who manages to betray every member of her family, culminating in the total destruction of her mother. If this is not painful enough, Dominique is almost taken over the edge, as she then loses her two eldest children and her dogs in the course of her own divorce. The emotional turmoil consumes the reader in almost cinematic detail.
As this is a modern love story, only Cyberspace can introduce her to the man she believes will lead her to happiness. Incredibly, after a thoroughly compelling journey that takes her to the brink of alcoholism and a nervous breakdown, she pulls through and finds the life she has only ever dreamed of, with the lovely Ben. A truly, gritty book from this exciting new author, setting the bench mark for future novels.
