Lost interest, marginally…

S.S. by J.J. Abrams
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Update:
After initial interest in the margin notes, I lost that interest just as quickly. I don‘t care about the developping relationship between those two or about what Straka was up to or what it all means in the end. I have no interest in figuring out this particular puzzle. I don‘t know, it‘s all too academic for my taste. The book/the authors are just trying too hard to be clever. You lost me, sorry.

Still, fabulous looking book, great idea, I just don‘t care for the content.

Progress on S.

Update May 18:
I finished the first pass, aka the plain text. I skimmed it, though, it wasn‘t a full read through. I feel pretty uninspired. There was no tension to the story and I didn‘t care for any of the characters. One star for plenty of weirdness.
Will give it a break and then get on with the black and blue margins next week…

How to read this?

There is also pale, grey witing in the margins. I am guessing it comes between your 1st and 2nd pass. But I am concentrating on the plain text first. I have read (skimmed, really) the first two chapters, trying not to get distracted by the margins and the inserts. Mysterious.

It might be important to leave the inserts where they are. Their position might be significant. I am trying to ignore them.

I found this, which looks intersting and claims to be spoler-free:
