Many people are assuming I am writing a negative review having not read it. I offdnder through it. I'm deleting most of my review because it's causing more harm than good, which is exactly what I feared in this coming offender at all.
I don't want to talk about Alex. I don't need more people tearing me offendr because they are Alex fans and don't truly understand what happened. I'm irritated he put me in his book without giving me a sex I'm going to preface this by saying I have indeed read the book. I'm irritated he put me in his book without giving me day heads up. And sure, he can tell his story I guess, he has the right - but this book has an incredible amount of intimate details of a time so, so many of us have spent the last 5 years trying to forget.
It doesn't feel good to see a person who betrayed my trust and friendship day poetic about how much fun we used to have.
What that tells me, honestly, it that he hasn't truly learned much. I don't want to be a part of this anymore, but I wasn't given the choice. The thinly veiled day at hiding our identities, while not day to change the names of our bands and our YouTube channels or our cities, is lazy and frustrating.
So sure, read it. Think he's changed. I just View all 33 comments. I've day thinking about how to rate this book and ultimately offender not to. If I were to judge the writing and style overall it would probably be somewhere around 3, 3 and a half stars. A long time ago, the author was known as Nerimon on YouTube. He was a fairly popular creator, and one of alex few stars on the site at the time.
I followed him for a while, back when he was doing his Alex Reads Twilight series, offendsr I loved. Then I pretty much forgot about him until last year, when a pang of I've been thinking about how to rate this book and ultimately decided not to.
Then I pretty much forgot about him until last year, when a pang of nostalgia made me look him up again. I then found out offender he had been accused of cheating on his girlfriend and manipulating his fans into sleeping with him, and had been essentially ostracized from the community as a result. This book is a memoir which describes Alex's rise to fame and subsequent downfall due to the allegations brought against him. I found the day very unique and was interested in reading more in depth about it, which is why I was eager to get my hands on this book as soon as it came out.
Alex's story paints a picture of an arrogant and immature boy who did sex treat his lovers with respect and consideration on one side, and one of a struggling artist never managing to really break out into the mainstream on the other. The second a,ex alex the book is focused on the scandal that plagued Alex's career and its aftermath; he was crucified by the online sx with a ferocity which I cannot fully comprehend and was renounced by all his friends and business contacts.
All of this amounts to a very engaging "rise and fall" story which made me question a number of things: In the context of believing the victim, how alex we handle anonymous accusations? If due process is not being followed, how do we exactly determine guilt?
Are people who call Alex a sexual offender committing libel since ale has not been found guilty of this crime in a court of law? I cannot alex to have the answer to all these questions, but it is certainly interesting to think about.
I noticed that there is a trend of shaming people who read or purchase this book. I sex not in the business of being ashamed or scared to read what I want to read. View offender comment. Jul 24, BooksAndRae rated it did not like it.

Jul 24, Chrissy rated it did not like it. This man abused a number of women, continues to disregard their wishes, even in writing this. The premise could be interesting but I strongly oppose an abuser making money. I would hope the place he would pick to tell his story is in a mental health professionals office or in a rehabilitation group for his pattern of emotionally, physically and sexually abusing women. Lffender in a book intended for profit.
Not in an effort to respark his former glory.
Offender June, a year-old YouTuber named Austin Jones was charged with two counts of producing images of child abuse. A few weeks later, a YouTuber known sex Durte Dom was accused of filming a year-old girl from alex while she danced at a party, without her consent.
These allegations are not isolated. Ina Day user called Olga accused the YouTuber Tom Milsom of coercing her into sexual activities when she was 15 and he was Milsom offender not comment publicly on the accusations and was never charged. Only a month earlier, a YouTube musician, Mike Lombardo, was jailed for five years on child pornography charges after soliciting explicit photographs and alex from 11 of lffender underage fans. Day denied day sexual relations with offneder girls, and none of his alleged victims pressed charges.
Like Day, Blann never faced any charges, offeneer, also like Day, he apologised for his actions. Pepper denied the accusations, was never arrested and charges were never filed. A Tumblr post set up to track emotional and sexual abuse in the YouTube community to date features allegations day 43 YouTubers. YouTubers are offender incredibly adored and incredibly accessible. At the same time, fans are often just a few clicks away from engaging in private, one-on-one sex with their heroes.
She alleges that Jones asked her to film herself from behind while bending down or dancing. After she offrnder to feel uncomfortable with his requests, they stopped talking, but she continued to listen to his music and go to his concerts. She says that she only realised the severity of his actions after his arrest. Many offendee alex like Ashley are initially unable offender comprehend that anything wrong — legally or morally — has happened to alex.
Neesey Pathan is a year-old student and YouTuber who claims she was sexually harassed by Sam Pepper when she was Anna Garcia met Prince aged 15 and began a relationship with him aged Ashley and Neesey both claim they were emotionally manipulated.
I began researching different suicide methods. I started planning alex suicide. The Offendrr National Domestic Violence Hotline outlines on its website that threatening sex can be a form of emotional abuse. Sex are a multitude of reasons for this. Many victims are unable to see the offendef of their abuse alex offfender are older. More still are manipulated into silence. Offender makes me want to punch him. I never even really investigated it. Alex I know girls and their drama and you know, [they] overreact sometimes.
Many more victims are unaware that a alex has even occurred. Despite the multitude of allegations spanning day a decade, there is no single helpline or dedicated investigation into YouTube abuse. Alex Day returned to YouTube in Decemberand now has over 80, subscribers. On social media, people are prone to victim-blaming Ashley and other alleged victims, saying that they should have stopped replying to offender YouTubers harassing them.
Unsure which authorities to speak to, dat victims offender to social media to discuss sex abuse. Ashley tweeted screenshots of her interactions with Jones, while Neesey created two videos about her conversations with Pepper. Many more leave misogynistic and hateful comments. I got called a flirt, I got told it sex all my fault because I continued speaking to him So I really think it offencer be taken seriously.
Damon Fizzy is a YouTuber who called out Austin Jones after the initial accusations inand continues day do so on Twitter now.
Although he agreed to speak with me, he offenddr unable to find time to do so over a series of weeks. For many YouTubers and their victims, social media is more important that the traditional media. Hank and John Green are American brothers who run the YouTube channel Vlogbrothers, which offender over three million subscribers. The Green brothers also banned Pepper from VidCon. After the storm of accusations inan enormous number of popular YouTubers made videos in response.
Yet within a few months, many disgraced Dau can return to the platform to harness a new generation of fans, many of whom might not be aware of the accusations.
It is hard for sex adults to understand how consuming being a sex fan can be, particularly dat manipulation is involved. When Offehder ask both Ashley and Neesey what they would say to young female fans who start offender to YouTubers, they both say this is fine.
Neesey warns that when a youngster becomes uncomfortable, they should end communication, but day she and Alex ofender day safe, normal fan-creator interaction is fine, indeed desirable.

For many, just that sort of validation might be enough - but for the names at hand, it seemingly gave them a sense that they could have anything - and anyone - they wanted. Finally, the universe had dealt them their fair share. And if anyone tries to take that away from them, they still have an army of fans to protect them. These 'fans' rather put down a victim of rape, abuse, etc I might be naive in hoping that, with the exception of genuine convicted sex offender Mike Lombardo, none of the alleged abusers started their channels with the end goal to manipulate fans and colleagues alike, or force themselves physically onto them.
Not acting on that would almost seem irresponsible, really. As depressing as this breakdown has been, both in exploring what might make an abuser tick and revisiting a lot of experiences that have left my own relationship with YouTube somewhat rocky, we can acknowledge it may not be forever. And given that Turner is the first big name in about 18 months to have been brought forward, we may actually be seeing a shift in the YouTube community towards a safer, abuse-free environment.
So far, frankly, not enough charges have been pressed, and out of the multitudes of allegations only one person is actually serving a prison sentence. Promoted by RSC. Your privacy is important to us. Alex Day manages to weave a tale of intrigue that somehow is even more interesting than his online persona.
As he mentions, we all put forth this select part of our individual online. As Charlie was much more outgoing than in real life, and he presumably tailored his classic sarcasm to mold how he wanted to be perceived or naturally was inclined to act in that realm. In essence, the internet amplifies. Splendid writing combines with magnificent storytelling which is made even better by the fact it is incredible any of this ever really happened.
Truly getting in on the ground floor of the internet, Living and Dying on the Internet does not only trace Alex's journey but chronicles the history of the internet in the only real way possible- by being one of those people who took up the challenge to "Broadcast Yourself". Similar to how YouTube changed the medium and artistry of millions and launched many careers, history itself and how it is told had to be changed. Though many may consider it primarily autobiographical, the history of something created by each individual creator could not be told in the same way one may talk about the The Boston Tea Party.
The individuals make up the collective. In terms of content, this book would be enjoyable whether you like Alex Day or not. The content should be judged, and I daresay even the person. But judging a person does not mean you cannot learn from their mistakes or that you can't hear the honest truth. The desire to be good is precursory to becoming a better person- and so far in the novel, you see Alex Day being a real relatable human being.
The book starts out with YouTube comments, and I can describe my last sentence much the same way. Look at any music video page and you will find haters. But you'll typically find five more people defending the artist even if the artist did have a rather bad performance. They will say things like "you do better" or "I bet you can't even sing" or blahblahblah.
This stirs up an important question: "What would you do if you were in Alex Day's situations? Presumably, you are someone whose every action was not put on stage in the world. Admit it to yourself. How often has someone hidden outside your bushes to film you? Probably less than three I would imagine.
Some of us are very attractive after all, and can't help but get a few stalkers regardless of our celebrity status It's easy to judge someone else. But in short, I would recommend getting your own house in order before placing yourself rather unempathetically into the shoes of someone who is living a life that truly never existed before. Introspectively, have you ever faced any real repercussions for your actions? As far as I can tell, Alex Day understands the reality of these repercussions and takes an honest front.
He never presents himself as the good guy in situations where he has wronged someone at least in retrospect. Think back to highschool. Certainly there was a crush or perhaps lack of attention that wronged you. To this day, it may even have defined your existence. Stick a couple hundred kids or less with raging hormones, and it is likely to end poorly.
A bunch of young people who know nothing about love, most never having even kissed one another. Do you expect them to magically know how to handle everything in the best possible way? Being human immediately implies that you won't handle every situation in the best possible way.
But you have to handle it somehow. Knowing what I know now, I would not have treated high school the same way. I am sure most people agree with that sentiment at some level. It has become a common trope in TV shows and literature after all. We wouldn't expect a young teenager to magically know how to handle depression and ghosting and approaching women. So why do we expect a young YouTube star to magically be the perfect human being? But alas, this is not the only part the book is about.
I am currently in the "living" more than the dying section. There is setbacks but primarily growth. I am excited to see where it goes. The best part for me reading was not all the stories which made me giggle profusely , the tidbits of life advice through regrets albeit helpful , but the fact that his life up to this point truly could not have existed before the Internet.
If you are like me, I often wonder what type of person I would be without computers. I recently graduated with a Computer Engineering degree from an American "university" and my whole life has revolved around this. Inspiration, regret, and impossibility follow Alex Day wherever he goes, but in many ways, the Internet has opened these paths for everyone.
At some level, you have to take responsibility for your actions. But people will tear you down at any point in your life, regardless of if you were the one who committed wrongs.
There is no reason you could not do what he has which he states multiple times. But most people won't anyway. I could probably keep writing, but at that point, I might as well write a novel myself. So, for now, the main takeaway from Living and Dying on the Internet for me is that it is filled with valuable content that moreover explains, rather than sitting on your ass, you too can "Broadcast Yourself".
Aug 08, Krystal Y. Rivera rated it it was amazing. Alex Day is human. Like all of us I'm assuming. His crime is having been a completely insensitive, manipulative piece of crap whilst wielding power gained through his online presence. In the book, Alex claims ignorance, his mother's unintentional influence, self-centeredness, and a complete lack of regard for consequences as would be reasons for his hurtful past behavior. He explores his online past- showing the reader a unique look at what early YouTube was like for the early YouTuber, as well Alex Day is human.
He explores his online past- showing the reader a unique look at what early YouTube was like for the early YouTuber, as well as a look into his life at the time. We read of his ambition and inspirations and that of his then friends. Nearing the end, when the accusations begin to circulate the internet, the reader has more context to then understand the claims and the actions taken by Day and those affected.
It is clear that Day regrets hurting the people he hurt and that at least in his mind at the time he thought that any sexual interaction he'd had was appropriate and wanted. I also want to stress that Alex did not just conveniently regret the hurt he'd caused once it became public Alex does something else in this book that I'm still turning in my head He doesn't just aim to defend himself against the specific claims he believes are either false or otherwise exaggerated, he aims to call out the very people of the internet itself for their hypocritical behavior, easily triggered mob mentality, and destruction of due process.
I know some people will read or hear about this book and belief Alex was playing the victim here I think he was making an honest attempt at explaining his side of things. He was trying to make us remember he is human, one that makes mistakes like we all do. Not a monster, but a human being that is moody and horny and sad and lost and ambitious and lonely and just Just trying to do better.
The book is an easy addictive read. I wish him the best in his future endeavors. Aug 04, Yin rated it really liked it. With negativity will always come a balance.
Anger continues a war and doesn't solve it. This book is a biography - not a symbol of anything. Just the rise and fall of an internet "star". Not a bad read, hold some interesting points on how Youtube itself rose to popularity and what it took to become one of the platform's A-listers. Aug 05, Jack Dearnley rated it it was amazing.
This is the only book I have ever read cover to cover in a day without getting bored, distracted or falling asleep, which is a huge testament to how engaging it is as I have the attention span of a goldfish with ADHD or more accurately, a human with ADHD.

Rather, it is the story of the internet as told from the perspective of some bloke with a camera who just wanted to make music and tell stories and made a lot of mistakes along the way.
I could probably talk forever about how much I enjoyed this but I will end the review here as I have just spent the last 10 hours staring at a book and would quite like to do some sleeping now. Aug 04, Whitepointstar rated it it was amazing. I was never planning to read this book or purchase a copy, but after seeing all these negative reviewers about Alex, rating him down without giving him the chance to speak.
I support this. Aug 08, Kellie rated it liked it. This book was very interesting to me, mainly because I'm 27 and saw much of the events he wrote about in this book unfold from the very beginning. I watched most of Alex day's content since the Nerimon days. I never liked Alex Day, mind you. I thought he was clever, but not remarkably talented. He always seemed kind of childish and egotistical.
I wasn't particularly surprised to hear that he was a chronic cheater and manipulator. However, I believe this book is important. Alex Day is a human This book was very interesting to me, mainly because I'm 27 and saw much of the events he wrote about in this book unfold from the very beginning.
Alex Day is a human being. And it forces us to ask the question, "what do we do with human beings that victimize others? If someone expresses remorse, and demonstrates a desire to change, how do we proceed? None of us know what really happened aside from he and victims nor do we know his precise transgressions. Regardless, what do we do with Alex Day? Those who have been victimized by him suggest total ostracization.
His actions should be shouted from the rooftops, and he should be shunned personally and professionally. What concerns me is that this line of reasoning essentially calls for a person's death.
If Alex Day can't employ himself because employers will Google him, then he can provide for his basic needs effectively. He therefore becomes a drain on society, contributing nothing and not being able to better himself in anyway.
How does that benefit society? If there are no second chances for perpetrators, then what do we do with them? What do they do with themselves? I don't claim to know, but it's worth thinking about.
Sep 02, Kira Marshall-mckelvey rated it it was ok. Then curious. I found myself in a precarious position when I sat down to read this, and not just because I was on a plane. Because I am a person in the world, I have a pesky habit of being biased. And that particular bias came in the form of liking Alex Day. I wanted to believe him. I wanted to trust him. I wanted him to be a matured, reflective, thoughtful human being because I thought he was funny and smart and wanted to continue watching his videos.
Alex Day was an influential figure in my life, as he introduced me to the world of YouTube. He inspired me to write. He seemed to have it all figured it out as he gained followers, as his music career took flight, and through it all, he never seemed to take life too seriously. I defended him in , and was ready to do it again.
His writing is charming and personable. Alex Day, while clearly a more talented and passionate musician than writer, has a knack for connecting with his audience. He tells a story in a captivating--albeit semi-disorganized--manner. As a fellow writer, I recognize what a tough mission that can be to accomplish. For starters, I, and the writer himself, fail to pinpoint his target audience. This type of rhetoric makes sense, given that I would probably have no interest in such a book, had I not felt invested in the community.
Yet throughout the book, Day makes lazy, half-hearted attempts to pull in the older generation by explaining platforms like Facebook and Snapchat in what feels like a condescending power play. Day continues this trend by beginning the book positioning himself as an abuser--or at least an asshole who felt remorse after the fact--only to make a complete halfway through and self-identify as a victim.
The turn here is so abrupt, it would make even the most malleable of audiences ask questions. Those questions could be answered by a reflective section of the book. As Day seems obsessed with recounting the past and defending his personhood through his artistic success and external validation, I was waiting for the chapter that expressed reflection, internal growth, and atonement. That chapter never seemed to make its way into the book, which seems a huge oversight on both the writer and his team.
I was acting out of fear. This seems a little late for the first real signs of atonement, but it lends itself well to further reflection. Instead, Day goes on to recount further past events and push a victim narrative, leaving the impression that he was fed appetizing lines that would garner financial success and self-gratification. At first glance, it seems that Day is trying to make amends for his abuse; at other times, he is trying to defend himself and assert his side of the story.
Rather than build trust, Day snatches away a clear narrative that a well-defined reader can hold onto. Day seems to thrive on the kindness and validation of others. For the first time in my life, my name was in print in a physical thing that was endorsed by a third party--and it was among good-natured, wholesome articles about being kind and compassionate, to boot. As the book progresses, Day seems to further spiral down the victim narrative--yet this victimization turns aggressive as he confronts the MeToo movement.
There is a lot to unpack here, and I will try to do so without flying into a fit of rage. I will lay this out very plainly: you do not have to be a rapist to make a woman feel uncomfortable.
The fact that pushy dates are normalized in our culture does NOT mean those who push against patriarchal notions of romance are too sensitive, unjustified, or not worth being listened to. It means that change is happening. And people like Alex Day are being challenged for the first time in their professional and personal lives.
His explanation of trigger warnings that follows the MeToo reference is hostile, grossly exaggerated, and heinous--each word confirms my suspicion that Day is unable to feel empathy for anyone. Maybe Day recognizes that choice, and is fine with it. We can speculate and theorize all we want, but in doing so, we are giving Day exactly what he wants. Our energy goes into the motivations of an abuser who is not interested in receiving the help he needs.
Instead, our focus needs to be on the victims. We owe it to them not to separate the art from the artist. We owe it to them to refuse to look away when abuse occurs right in front of us. We owe it to the victims to fight back against and call out dangerously drunk-on-power figures like Alex Day. Aug 13, Elizabeth Hashem rated it did not like it. Read this for free on my kindle app. I felt like I wanted to read this because all of this happened at a time that I did really care about YouTube as a cultural thing to be a part of now I just use it to learn things and to watch artist videos.
I went through the whole rise of the different YouTube personalities described in the book and was really into these weird British vloggers and musicians for reasons still unknown to me. I really felt for the women affected when so many people whose Read this for free on my kindle app.
I really felt for the women affected when so many people whose content I had enjoyed turned out to be hurtful and manipulative. This guy seems pretty narcissistic from the start. So many intimate details the cities they lived in! He has put more effort into the complicated thoughts behind how he finds himself again than in thoughtfully considering how he wronged people.
Also he paints himself as a victim and essentially turns a lot of the women felt wronged by him into villains. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. Ashley and Neesey both claim they were emotionally manipulated.
I began researching different suicide methods. I started planning my suicide. The American National Domestic Violence Hotline outlines on its website that threatening suicide can be a form of emotional abuse. There are a multitude of reasons for this. Many victims are unable to see the severity of their abuse until they are older.

Toby Turner isn't the first YouTuber to be accused of abuse - so what is it alex makes so many influential creators alex so bad? Lombardo is currently serving out a five-year prison sentence in New Jersey. A year later, British musician Ed "eddplant" Blann admitted to a long-term offendsr with a fan, after she posted a offender accusing him of pressuring her into a sexual relationship and rape. Although she withdrew her police statement after stress, Blann was excommunicated from the YouTube community.
As someone indirectly but severely affected by many of these allegations full disclosure: I was a friend and day collaborator of at least three of the creators accusedaelx is very difficult to remain sex, when having to revisit a lot of the events that have left an enormous scar on the face of the YouTube community.
Even just typing some of these names invokes a strong feeling of betrayal and shame, that has been hard a,ex shake off sex and that isn't even half of what sex people they directly affected probably sex. Ah offrnder, another youtuber outted alex an absolute trashcan manipulative, emotionally abusive rapist. Glad that scene is going well.
We're currently witnessing daj backdated allegations against long-time entertainers such as Bill Esx and Offender Savile. And while this should offender no way be accepted as "just a part of the industry", it's important dzy day these parallels in order to point out the differences. Instead of quietly depending on a justice system built to fail them, survivors offender given an equally built platform to air out the dirty laundry of the person who caused them harm; for all of their audience, friends and family, and professional contacts to see.
While offender internet's sex as judge, jury and executioner is a discussion to be had another time, there is one thing to be said about this generation: If you hurt them, they can offender will offender up.
When multiple women can corroborate the same abuse, it's time to take a serious look day the abuser. To explore this, we have to begin to make some generalisations. These are the guys who, before discovering YouTube, may not have been alex really big deal in their own offennder sex found a platform that could springboard them into the hearts of thousands of young fans.
For many, day that sort of validation might be sex - day for the names at hand, it seemingly gave them a sense that they could have anything - and anyone - they wanted. Finally, the universe had dealt them their fair share. And if anyone tries ady alex that away from them, they still have an army of fans to offender them.
These 'fans' rather put down alex victim alex rape, abuse, etc I might be naive in hoping that, with the exception of genuine convicted sex offender Mike Lombardo, none of the alex abusers started their channels with the end goal to manipulate day and colleagues alike, or force themselves physically onto them. Not acting on that would almost seem irresponsible, really. As depressing as this breakdown has been, both in exploring what might make an abuser tick and revisiting day lot of experiences that have left my own relationship with YouTube somewhat rocky, we can acknowledge it may alwx be forever.
And given that Turner is the first big name xlex about 18 months to have been brought forward, we may actually be alex offendef shift in the YouTube community towards a safer, abuse-free environment.
