DEN: A new experience of reading an e-book

DEN stands for Digital Epistolary Novel...

The Plot of Intimacies is a novel you read on your PC. The "book" is actually a series of windows simulating emails, web pages, and Instant Messages (IMs). You click through the story just as you would read emails from friends.

The story itself:
Two young professionals "meet" through a mis-sent e-mail. They become "attracted" in cyber-space and tentatively agree to a "real" meeting. A brutal assault follows. The obvious suspect is the e-mail partner, but one person is unconvinced. A series of surprises and revelations follows--all delivered in digital form, all entirely possible, and all representing ways we now learn of events in our world where virtual reality constantly fights its counterpart.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look at it, as the premise sounds intriguing.
