Anon Pls.: A Novel
About this deal
Maybe if this had taken a different approach than telling some novelized version of the deuxmoi origin myth and had instead focused on a plot that still included the lives of wealthy people and a regular degular person maneuvering through that it could have been more enjoyable. Meanwhile, Cricket constantly downplays their concerns and is more worried for herself, often lamenting how her life is going to be over if anyone finds out about the Instagram account. I am not judging this book by criteria I would use for literary fiction, but even so, it falls short.
Observer praised the book for capturing "how celebrity gossip culture has been completely democratized by armchair commentators" and commented that the reflections throughout on the nature of internet anonymity were surprisingly thoughtful.
And believe me, this journey has several entertaining, juicy AF moments that kept me entertained throughout! it was the first bingeworthy book i’ve read in a few months—I devoured it in 24ish hours (two sittings) and couldn’t stop thinking of it when i wasn’t reading.
However, keeping her identity a secret is more important than ever while she leaks celebrity gossip for millions of viewers. But of course running a viral Instagram account is difficult while you work full time and even harder when your boss is irrational. Never gonna be a literary classic, but getting the inside view of the Deuxmoi juggernaut is a heap of fun!
If I can enjoy the fast paced celeb gossip, just imagine what fans of the account will say when reading this book. When she drunkenly restarts her old Instagram as a source of celebrity gossip, it gains more traction – and problems – than she ever imagined. Feeling stuck, Cricket reignites an old style instagram account and turns it into a celebrity gossip page while drinking with friends. You just wonder how in the world she has a job and how in the world did she even get to the level that she was at.
But when the account grows overnight and, even wilder, when she starts getting gossip from fans - juicy gossip - she has to face facts: her Instagram is now famous. Essentially this is Crickett's journey of self-discovery and how to monetize DM, and establish it as her full-time job, and leave behind the daily torment of being an assistant to a tyrant behind. but a novel about the genesis of a real gossip instagram page co-penned by said gossip instagrammer and former Cosmo Op-Ed edited Jessica Goodman. Liiike…an entertaining but not good Netflix movie retelling of The Devil Wears Prada, but updated by an apathetic Grade 8 group creative writing project that just wants to be done already?
