S. 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!
