Posted January 26, 2007 - By Eugene Morton

I generally find excessive text messaging annoying. Why the hell would you spend three minutes typing something you could say in five seconds? However, one Finnish man has taken the most annoying of technologies and turned it into an art form.

Publishing house Tammi has just released Hannu Luntiala’s The Last Messages, the fictional account of a Finnish information technology exec who quits his life to travel through India and Europe, but remains connected with his family and friends through text messages.

As Luntiala puts it, "I believe that, at the end of the day, a text message may reveal much more about a person than you would initially think." 

If this at all tickles your fancy, then you’ll be happy to hear that the publishers are thinking about releasing the 332 page novel in other languages.
