In the wondrous age of the Internet, Rikka is a living goddess. Bathed in the ethereal light of her computer, she becomes awesum_v0m1t, a blogger, webcam model, chess master, mischief-maker and fantasy photographer seen and worshipped by millions around the world. Each night, she lays bare before the still, unclosing eye of her webcam, enthralling those who have labelled her "Queen of the Internet." Online, there are no limits to awesum_v0m1t's affection. No desire she cannot fulfill...except her very own.
Outside her online sanctuary, Rikka is nothing more than a flawed, lonely and heartbroken teenager. To her, the real world is a barren, passionless place in which she cannot abide. Rikka spends her days wandering aimlessly along the Icelandic countryside with a heavy throat, an empty stomach and a cigarette between her lips, waiting only to reunite with her millions of online followers at nightfall.
Rikka holds beyond certainty that her online persona is the definition of true love, but even so, her affair with awesum_v0m1t is a forbidden love-one she will never obtain outside the computer screen. The only escape is suicide, but before she attempts, the world takes a violent turn. A sadistic online stalker, a religious old man and a series of gruesome nightmares will send Rikka on an odyssey of unspeakable suffering to obtain the greatest love of all-herself.
"The Way, the Truth, and the Internet" is an earnest attempt at modernism in the Digital Age, introducing an enigmatic female protagonist whose struggle against humanity is almost biblical. Through Rikka's harsh, cryptic narrative, the reader is taken from the darkest, most depraved corners of the Internet to the far reaches of Iceland's volcanic, magnificent wilderness.
