About Alex Ford

Alex Ford was born in Cambridge in 1975. After teaching Design & Technology at a secondary school in England, he decided to pack away his corduroy trousers and tweed jacket to travel the world. While living in Tokyo, Japan, updating his Facebook friends about 'What was on his mind...' he wrote his first novel, The Friend Request - a Facebook-based thriller. Still writing and travelling, Karl & the Prankster God is his second novel.
It seems highly unlikely he will return to the classroom any time soon.

Everything seems to be about Facebook these days! - I found this great read while looking for info on The Social network. The Friend Request gives the other perspective - that of the Facebook user. It's made me think, more than twice, about the people I've got listed as friends - like the main character David Andrews I've accepted a few requests without really knowing who they are.
The author has a dark sense of humour that's for sure and whether intentionally or not there's a strong message there! Definitely one for the 'Facebook Whores'!

Review by: Danny Baker on Sep. 30, 2010 :
This book will make you laugh, feel smug, tickle your superiority complex and then have you feeling bashful all in the space of ten pages. Anyone who has ever been on a social networking site needs to read this if only to see, and laugh at, themselves. Alex Ford has managed to capture the beguiling way that sites like Facebook play on our narcissistic nature and the dangers that may very well lurk in such vanity. This fun, yet scarily plausible read will make you think (if only for a minute) about the consequences that a few seconds vanity might hold.

A brilliant read. It's thought-provoking, funny, entertaining and topical. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it.

This book is certainly of its time with a very topical theme. An easy read, it flowed well, with some very funny parts. Some great characters. I definitely recommend it. Enjoyable!
