Is it a book, or a bunch of text messages? IT'S BOTH!

Fancy reading a book that’s all about a Finnish IT executive who resigns to travel the world? Okay, so it doesn’t sound that appealing (and anyway, we’re still ploughing through the Jodie Marsh autobiography).

Nevertheless, ‘The Last Messages’ by Hannu Luntiala is a groundbreaking book. Why? It’s written entirely in text messages. 1,000 of them, in fact. They’re the fictitious messages sent and received by the hero while on his global jaunt.

You need a working knowledge of Finnish to read the book at the moment, but its publisher Tammi is apparently considering translating it into other languages.
