|Plot Summary of Hit Reply|
Downtown, Dec 2004, 13.00, 320 pp.
Twenty-eight years old Bostonian Amber Fleece is desperate and bored with the Ivy League crowd she has been seeing for eons. Amber decides to go back to her happiest moment with males: her prom night. She registers with classreunion.com seeking Gray McDermott though she learns he is blue collar.
Stephanie “Stevie Wonder Woman” Hilliard used to be Amber's boss, but became an Orlando mother of two. She loves her darlings, but is bored especially since her husband Brent is never home always traveling with his young beautiful assistant. When she receives an interesting email from Tony Markoff, a blast from her past, Stevie begins an on-line affair, but wonders if that is cheating and if so is that equal to her husband's seeming fling.
Amber's administrative assistant Julie Desmond is recently divorced while also suffering from empty nest syndrome as her son has left for college. She becomes independent as she grows on the job and meets a former boyfriend via the Internet.
HIT REPLY is a powerful character study that looks at three women in varying phases in their lives yet with similar problems and the influence of the Internet on their relationships. The audience gets a first hand look at the prime trio through their email exchanges. The story focuses on what the Net is doing to people as well as asking psychological questions as to whether it fosters closeness and communication or isolationism and hiding.
