About this item

A young woman picks up a book left behind by a stranger. Inside it are his margin notes, which reveal a reader entranced by the story and by its mysterious author. She responds with notes of her own, leaving the book for the stranger, and so begins an unlikely conversation that plunges them both into the unknown.
The book: Ship of Theseus, the final novel by a prolific but enigmatic writer named V.M. Straka, in which a man with no past is shanghaied onto a strange ship with a monstrous crew and launched onto a disorienting and perilous journey.
The writer: Straka, the incendiary and secretive subject of one of the world's greatest mysteries, a revolutionary about whom the world knows nothing apart from the words he wrote and the rumors that swirl around him.
The readers: Jennifer and Eric, a college senior and a disgraced grad student, both facing crucial decisions about who they are, who they might become, and how much they're willing to trust another person with their passions, hurts, and fears.
S., conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst, is the chronicle of two readers finding each other in the margins of a book and enmeshing themselves in a deadly struggle between forces they don't understand, and it is also Abrams and Dorst's love letter to the written word.

J.J. along with 3 time Jeopardy winner create a love letter to the written word, similar to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Watchmen, there are 2 parallel stories going on here. Similar to the way Tales of the Black Freighter and Under the Hood weaves in and out Watchmen and creates commentary on itself...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is actually two stories in one book. The book itself and than the messages left in the book tell another story. There are also inserts throughout the book. It would make a great gift for teens and up.see moreof the reviewer's review
