S by Doug Dorst and JJ Abrams

sabrams.jpegS. by Doug Dorst and JJ Abrams isn't your typical fiction book. No, what's packed between those two covers (and on the cover itself) is an experience, a mystery that overflows from the pages of the book, spilling forth in the form of inserted post cards, letters, even maps scrawled on napkins. The book itself is styled as a copy of 'Ship of Theseus' by a fictional author V.M. Straka, stolen from a California school library. In the margins, there are notes scrawled in different colors: an ongoing conversation between two people intensely studying both the text of Ship of Theseus and the mysteries surrounding the author. If you were a fan of the intricate mysteries that were part of Abrams' Lost or all the secret society intrigue of Alias, this is a distillation of those themes and elements into a book that is unlike probably anything you've ever read. As a unique experience, I cannot recommend S. highly enough. We have several copies available at the library, though there's a wait list right now. Place a hold today so you can experience this book yourself! Tim @ Central
