Most text messages max out at 160 characters, and can you imagine wanting to type much beyond that length? A man in Italy used the T9 predictive-text input on his Nokia 6630 to type “Compagni di Viaggo,” or “Fellow Travelers” for the English version. The sci-fi novel clocks in at 384 pages when in the form of a bound book.Author Robert Bernocco typed his novel in pieces while commuting to and from his IT job in Piedmont, Northern Italy. Then he downloaded it to the computer to proofread and edit. It took him 17 weeks to write. He published the book on Lulu.com, a marketplace for digital content.
