You get quickly drawn into this book just as it is with Second Life itself. Those who have been there and those who still are there know what I am talking about.
I think one of my favorite line in the book is when Huck writes: "...SL is all about relationships..." And I believe Huck is right. The relationships we build here in this virtual world are just as meaningful as the ones we have in the real world. I have seen residents who have been friends for many years and perhaps they have spend more time in the virtual world with their virtual friends than in the real world. How can you call that relationship virtual, well it isn't, really. It is as real as the emotions that go into it.
I hope you go read the book and the other works by Huck.
