loved it, even though I'd seen the movie!
on 16 February 2012
I saw the movie "Panic Button" a few months ago and it really played on my mind. Like others, I post all sorts of things online and think very little about my own protection or, indeed, who may be watching. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some paranoid freak who thinks there may be stalkers out there watching my every move! I'm just a little more cautious now (in a good way) than I was before. Anyway, I bought the kindle version because I'd watched the movie and liked the plot so wanted to see how it would translate literarily. I risked my 99p(!) and, to be honest, was expecting to get half way through and move on (because I'd seen it on screen, obviously!). Though the story was the same, it was a totally new way of experiencing the story! There's a richness to the text that allows one to really get sucked in to the story world.
I didn't realise that there's actually an all2gethr.com (the site mentioned extensively in the story). It looks fun and has loads of funny vids etc... I digress. Sorry!
I would recommend reading this book (it won't take long) even if you've seen the movie. It's fast paced, fun and thrilling. Great stuff! If you haven't seen the movie yet, give that a go too. It's well acted, thought provoking and a little disturbing. I've never read or seen anything by Frazer Lee before Panic Button. I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for him in the future.
