I've been looking forward to reading this for a while, as the premise sounded so intriguing, but unfortunately I DNFed after 40-odd pages of random fragments that made no sense to me.

I feel a bit guilty about this because I can see from other reviews that the second half is supposed to be better than the first half, but I just couldn't force myself to get there.

The fragmented style reminds me a little of Jenny Offill's 'Weather', which I also had mixed feelings about, but at least that seemed to have some sort of a story from the start! ( )

Odd, odd novel. I get the gist. The portal is the internet. The first part was sometimes funny, but with no real direction unless circles count. The second part was certainly better and showed the author's talent. However, it just didn't work for me. ( )

A woman gets to tour the world after being famous for a dumb thing she wrote in the Portal. I love that even the internet isn't mentioned, using this fictional Portal to become all of the internet and all the apps that have or will ever live and die... making the book transcend time, the time of the internet being most fickle of all. I love that Lockwood writes these perfectly crafted little snippets for the internet distracted inclined, and definitely think the Twitteresque snippets are the point... It's taking what Jenny Offill does (and also reminded me of the gem 'Goodbye, Vitamin' by Rachel Khong) and bringing this incredible honesty and clear-eyed view of what social media/the internet has done to us. I have had many of these thoughts before but I could never say them this clearly and hilariously. Also quite funny, I think Lockwood intentionally makes you google so many things. No other book that I have read has said such truth about our technology yet. None of these snippets are extraneous, no word misplaced. Which would seem tough to do in a book like this, about the randomness and distraction of the internet. Easily, a book like this in less genius hands would have annoyed me. I am not Extremely Online and never really was. I was worried the internet of it all would annoy me, possibly be a bit too hipstery. But Lockwood is at that perfect age of being born in 1982 when she can remember when the internet wasn't constantly in your hand or even in the home, but also young enough to remember every meme that ever happened. But still, I was amazed each and every time a snippet is perfectly crafted and placed. And then the second half of the book happens. The woman is called back to Ohio from her travels. And it's like the real needs to grab her hand and take her from the drowning ocean of the internet. All I can say otherwise, to do the book justice: this book is perfect. Heart and humor and explaining our human problem with the internet. Thank you for having the courage to write it. ( )

Unsurprisingly poetic, stream-of-consciousness novel about a woman who is embedded in the “portal” (social media) to the exclusion of other parts of life, and whose consciousness starts to stream off into nothingness while she is filled with rage and love; then, a family tragedy rips her from the portal and back into a different kind of time than internet time. Beautifully done if the constant paragraphs and half-paragraphs and quotes of real and made-up memes won’t annoy you exceedingly. ( )

Her stupidity panicked her, as well as the way her voice now sounded when she talked to people who hadn't stopped being stupid yet.
"What about the stream-of-a-consciousness that is not entirely your own? One that you participate in, but that also acts upon you?" One audience member yawned, then another. Long before the current vectors came into being, they had been a contagious species.
But worth remembering: the mind had been, in its childhood, a place of play.

It had also once been the place where you sounded like yourself. Gradually it had become the place where we sounded like each other, through some erosion of wind or water on a self not nearly as firm as stone.
