Besides that deliciously sneaky feeling that you are spying on these two by reading their handwritten margin notes, the book is chock full of little surprises, which I love! Postcards, letters, notes, newspaper articles.... What fun!
Check out the youtube trailer for a taste of the adventure you receive with this book:
"S." by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst
I wasn't quite sure how to approach the book. I was a little afraid the items would fall out of the pages and I wouldn't know when to refer to them, so I noted their page numbers in a corner of each one with a pencil and put them all in a ziploc baggie. Then I circled the page number in pencil so I know if I see a circled page number to go to the goodie bag. Violet is quite curious about the bag's contents.
J.J. Abrams is the filmmaker who produced, directed or wrote Lost, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Fringe and more. Doug Dorst is a university professor and a writer, and impressively a three time Jeopardy winner!
A wonderful indulgence in a different world!
