Abstract [en]

The essay is a text centred study of ten Young Adult Novels, in which Internet plays an essential part. The structure is put into light out of used narrative techniques of how to create stories and its construction elements. I compare the ten Young Adult novels to each other. My aim is to analyze the functions of the Internet motive in the chosen novels, using different approaches, and enlighten it with concerns to the new phenomenon that Internet is in society. Consequently the essay will also have a mimetic touch to it.

The ten novels that I base the analysis on are written of both med and women and have both male and female as main fictive persons, and are from different parts of the world. The novels are published between 1997 and 2002.

The analysis is divided into the categories that I have found characteristic for the Internet based Young Adult novel. My study shows that the authors of these Young Adult novels remind of each other in their ways of using Internet as a literary form. It also points out all the possibilities that Internet brings with it when it is being used as a tool in the making of a story, sometimes representing familiar literary motives in a more modern way.
