I would like to find the title of a book I read in the 1990s (possibly 2001 at the latest, but more likely mid 90s):
-it was a newish book at the time
-target audience was adults, not children
-science fiction
-main character was male


The people lived isolated lives, with only virtual interaction. The main character left/escaped and joined up with some people who were living a more natural life.


That's about all I remember.

The first story of that type may be The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster, in 1909. It's common ground in many stories now, from Fahrenheit 451 to the Matrix movies.
