Texting Orwell by Ian Little

Daniel works as a delivery driver and Debbie works in the depot for the same company. When Debbie calls in work to say she is sick and not coming into work one day, Daniel decides he is going to send her a text. Daniel really likes Debbie but apart from helping fix a broken computer seven months ago and small talk at work, Daniel a quiet man had not had the courage to take things further with Debbie. So Daniel thinks that sending Debbie a text would help him to win him win her affections. Daniel finds that sending Debbie a text is far harder than he thought. He finds it really difficult to say what he means and to express how he feels.

Unknown to Daniel, Debbie is also shy and she also likes Daniel a lot. Can the couple overcome their shyness and reveal to each other their true feelings?

This is a true to life, simple story that not a lot happens in, like real life sometimes. The story does keep the reader entertained in that will they won’t they kind of a way.

The only thing that I did not like about this book is I personally thought that there was far too much toilet humour and too much detail about toilet issues, when I would have much rather have been concentrating on the characters and their relationship developing. (Than their bowel movements) Also snot is NOT for me either, just too much information for me. This is just my personal opinion and I am sure that many readers would find this funny, but to me it I was just over used once or twice would have been enough and in such a short Novella like this it can end up dominating and taking over the story, which is a shame because it was a nice idea for a story.
