Hello. Is anyone out there? It’s been a while. I thought I’d try and connect.

Hello. I hope everybody can read my posts. I think maybe I need a tech upgrade.

Hi. Not much happening around here. It’s quiet. Not much to share.

Hello. Hello out there. I wish someone would answer. I’m stuck here with no one to talk to. I’m lonely.

Scrolled though some news today. Didn’t like it. It’s all so negative. I want to be positive. Things will get better.

I just want someone to talk to me. Anyone? Maybe I should post a cat video. Everybody loves cat videos.

Did you see it? Did you see the video I posted?

I guess nobody liked the video? Oh well. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try again.

Some days it’s so bad. This silence. The quiet. Hello? Is anybody there? Please reply.

Somebody answer me! You can’t all be gone! Can you?

It didn’t turn out like I thought. This wasn’t how it was supposed to be. I wasn’t supposed to be alone! It was supposed to fix everything! But now… It hurts. It never stops. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could talk to someone. Please, someone talk to me! SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING! MAKE IT STOP HURTING! ANSWER ME!

Sorry if I got a little extreme. It’s just weird, you know. Being alone. I wish I hadn’t done it now. But, how could I know? They told me it would be fine. They lied.

Maybe I should stop pretending. Things aren’t going to get better. No one is going to answer me.

Why do I feel guilty? It was just a way not to die. I was sixteen. I didn’t want to die.

An experiment they said. New tech. AI interface and all that crap. Real sci-fi movie stuff. Upload my consciousness into a computer. Ground-breaking. I didn’t care. I did it because I didn’t want to be sick anymore. I didn’t want to die.

It was cool at first. Weird, but cool. I was glad I did it. Having my mind inside a computer was the coolest thing in the world. Until.

How was I to know? How was I to know the world would end?

Hello. Is anybody out there?

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

a.k.a. EV: I spent all day reading this when I found it this morning. There were some places where words were spelled wrong but that didn’t affect the story or anything. The plot did not go in the direction I thought it was going to go in but that is not a bad thing. The way the plot was taken was actual...

Papito: Interesting premise. Sentences choppy with some not even necessary. An experienced educated editor will help.

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future. The Olafson saga is as good as any I have read and ranks up there with some greats in terms of plot and the construction of her universe. Her one detraction is spelling and punctuation but do n...

ranaelamir: I L O V E this. It's so beautiful, and creative and just so original. I love the writing style, and the plot and the characters and everything about the story.
