Okky introduces Jayanegara, who runs from one crowd to another. Addicted to the internet and social media, Jayanegara creates an alter ego named Matajaya and buries himself deep in the virtual world. Through Matajaya, Jayanegara builds a “life” of his own, creating stories of his imaginary experiences and shares it with his networks. He builds this fake life on the internet to get away from real life, and living a life under the shadow of his father, whom he hates very much. Through Jayanegara’s story, Okky wants to show readers how technology rules and affects human lives, even without them realizing it. She also illustrates how modern people always look to the future, see what’s ahead and leave the past behind them.1

Through her exceptional writing skills, Okky peels the phenomenon layer by layer and profoundly describes how communication technology started to enter and take over human’s lives.
