Finnish author Hannu Luntiala has created an entire novel with and about text messaging. Entitled “The Last Message,” the plot consists of an IT exec who resigns, travels throughout Europe and India, and communicates only through text messaging. The 332 page “phone book” consists of approximately 1,000 messages which of course are written in SMS.

“I believe that, at the end of the day, a text message may reveal much more about a person than you would initially think,” says Luntiala, who also heads a company that keeps databases on Finns.

Publishing firm Tammi is considering make the novel available in other languages. We’re not exactly sure of the point here, but this may start a whole wave of Orwellian Newspeak.
