It’s been a few weeks since I finished this book… and I still can’t decide if it was wonderful or awful.
Design-wise it is certainly lots of fun to read, with illustrations, pull out maps and a mysterious letter pasted tantalisingly into the back. The two (or 3, or is it 4?) narratives are each rendered in their own, distinct style with several characters presenting their stories. It gives an interactive feel to the reading experience.
However, I am still ambivalent about its merits as a story. I just can’t decide if that resolution is gobbledygook or genius.
