Daniel è un ragazzo non connesso: pochi amici nella realtà e su facebook, un cellulare arcaico e i tipici tratti dell'adolescente emarginato e deriso.
E infatti tutto va come da copione fino all'arrivo di Anna, un uragano di proporzioni epiche che sconvolgerà la cittadina.
La natura forzerà tutti a rinunciare alla connessione continua e la vita di Daniel subirà notevoli svolte. ( )

When a town loses the ability to digitally connect due to a hurricane, how do people react? I thought this plot would be a typical, anti-technology utopian theme, but it isn't. The main characters do find something new about their lives when it's not dominated by digital technology, but not in an oversimplified way.

Subtle, but still quickly paced. A good balance of interesting plot and interesting characters. ( )
