    One thought on “Growing up Wired

    1. Kevin Farrell on said:

      I reviewed this book for the author and offered some feedback prior to publication. I would have rated it higher if I was closer to the twenty something demographic that it is written for. The book takes a look at the social pitfalls of young people in college - especially the fraternity/sorority set. The writing flows well and is fast paced. I was reminded of Tom Wolfe's writing when I read this story.In short, this book was too hip for me. Give it a try if you are still cool.

      jerseyguyscanreadQuite an interesting take on rites of passage, and coming of age in modern times. I felt like a lot of the characters were too flat to be effective as characters in the story, which is a shame because the characters that were more developed were a lot of fun and fairly relatable. Definitely a great story though, because the internet really is replacing face to face interaction. Even texting, and that sucks because actually talking to someone in person is so much more gratifying [...]

      Got it for free from the author. It's about something I know very little about, but I do find it hilarious and very well-written. I sort-of wished the Ma Red story line would have a more surprising ending.

    4. Julie(Reading By The Beach) on said:

      Growing Up Wired is almost like a college experience all rolled into one book. Drugs, drinking, sex, porn and a generation obsessed with technology. David Fleming sneaks in these sub-plots that are meaningful and just simply brilliant. It's almost scary how realistic this book is. Growing Up Wired shows how individuals(maybe a certain generation) can become disconnected with the living world by shutting themselves away or being dependent with technology(computers, cell phones, social websites et [...]

    5. John Hammond on said:

      While Growing Up Wired is a decidedly hi-tech coming of age novel, any potential reader must be warned that its title implies a far broader exploration of technology in everyday life than the novel provides. At the same time, it should not be narrowly dismissed as a parable against porn. The adult entertainment industry is not the villain of this story. All of the players are average college students.A girl's desire for attention from the widest possible audience leads her to put hot photos onli [...]

      The author approached me via email asking if I'd like to read and review his book. I told him I would be happy to. :) (Maybe one day -- he will repay the favor?!) This is an entertaining read. It makes you wonder why we post things in our profiles online for the whole world to see and if we stop to think about the consequences these things could hold for us in the future. Applying for a job at a daycare center? But what about those photos of your bare boobs out there for God and your grandma to [...]

      How would react to hearing the girl you're interested in hook up with your fraternity brother? We follow Victor through a year at college as he falls deeper into the technological revolution, with MySpace and nearly-naked girls occupying a lot of his hard drive, and his journey to "get the girl." He's the underdog, at the mercy of his fraternity brothers, navigating the waters of underage drinking and a hint of hazing. In the end, he gets the girl and appears to lose his addiction to the barely- [...]

      I went to a small college, without fraternities, as the internet was in its adolescence. So Growing Up Wired's protagonist inhabited a foreign land to me (however stretched for comic or satiric purposes), dealing with issues that didn't exist for me when I was at school. Fleming explores issues of sex and establishing authentic connections in the digital age, and how the natural tendency for rebellion and revolution in young college students are being affected by technology - and he does it with [...]

      To quote from Robert Cherny's review, "A more proper title might have been The Effect of Internet Porn on a Frat Boy and the Women He Meets.”

    10. Karen on said:

      This is a very well written bookWas a fast and enjoyable readI do feel it is more geared for my 20/30 yr. old children,but so glad I had the chance to read it

    11. Mason on said:

      Realistic of 2011 college life and technology. Well written and liked it human quality.Ending surprized me. Good read.

    12. Robert on said:

      Review of “Growing Up Wired” By David Wallace FlemingThe first chapter, the last chapter and a couple of chapters in the middle are brilliant. The remainder of the book careens between “Catcher in the Rye” and “Animal House” both in style in a level of sophistication. The contrast between the highs and the lows is so sharp as to be painful.The book asks, but does not answer, the question whether a young man, or a boy, can have a fulfilling relationship with a woman after having been [...]

      2.5 StarsFull disclosure: I received this book free as part of a First Reads Giveaway.Some of the reviewers of this book mention that they are not the target demographic for this book. With the title Growing Up Wired, I thought I was. I am an early millennial, part of the first generation of digital natives. I graduated high school in 2003. In fact, I might be a little young for this book. By the time I got to college, everyone had a computer, nobody actually talked on the phone and the Interne [...]

    14. TC on said:

      From the description this sounded like a parable for modern times and something that would provide some interesting thought provoking material. I like something a bit challenging so had high hopes for this book.Victor is an Alpha boy, living in a frat house with other young men most of whom are far more adept with women than him. In the brave new age of the internet he passes his time surfing the web for porn. Soon many of his friends are browsing MySpace to find sexually suggestive pictures of [...]

    15. Cristina on said:

      It took me a while to read this book because I wasn't really that into it. I'm sorry to say that I don't think it is written very well. It's very stream of consciousness and I found it difficult to follow. It's about a boy in a fraternity in college in what seems like the late 90s. Maybe I wasn't the right audience for this book, but I just didn't like it. It seemed like it was written by a high schooler. Also, the things that were going on didn't seem very realistic. I can't speak for what it's [...]

    16. Mary Sue on said:

      I received this book as a First Reads Giveaway. I quickly realized that I am not the target demographic. I was hoping to gain some insight into what makes some young people do the things they do in regard to internet/facebook/snapchat, etc. However, the author provided no such insight for me. I found the characters poorly developed and had great difficulty in distinguishing one from another.

    17. Siisso on said:

      Terrific was when one stumbled across capturing modern literature like this on alternative book sites. It was full of college when I was a freshman, and it still is. The mood and scenes will take a while to change from what is conveyed on Growing Up Wired. This was the once I identified with a character on a level of unbridled humour and undertakings to an extent. What made it enjoyable and worthwhile. These days I distance myself completely. How my reading has been improved.

    18. Tony Greenall on said:

      Wonderfully written to begin with, but as the story went on each character became more and more dislikeable. Eventually I just didn't care how things turned out and abandoned it 3/4 of the way through.Having said that, I wouldn't be averse to trying more of this author, his writing style certainly has much to recommend it.

    19. Emily on said:

      This book wasn't exactly my cup of tea, but it did prove an interesting insight into difficulties faced by today's technology-driven young adults.
