The Big Reveal!
Back in late August, our favorite teaser, Mr. J.J. Abrams, released a very mysterious trailer. The guessing game that pursued was quite a bit of fun. We have learned now what this Abrams mystery project has turned out to be. It's not an upcoming movie nor is it an upcoming television show, Abrams is writing a book!
That's write, Abrams' first novel is called S. and it will be co-written by Doug Dorst. An author I am unfamiliar with but excited nonetheless.
Here is a synopsis:
"S. is basically about the relationship between a grad student named Eric and a college senior named Jennifer. They trade notes in the margins of a (fictional) 1949 novel by a mysterious author named V.M. Straka. S. contains the novel within the novel; copious handwritten notes between Jennifer and Eric (“a conversation that plunges them into the unknown,” according to the book jacket); and dozens of pieces of ephemera between the pages like newspaper clippings and a napkin with a map drawn on it. (S. will come shrink-wrapped so none of this extra material falls out.) - See more at: http://www.joblo.com/movie-news/the-second-trailer-for-jj-abrams-upcoming-novel-s-continues-the-creepiness#sthash.Iy3xKM4A.dpuf"
Sounds really cool, and I think I know I want to read soon! It'll be interesting to read Abrams book. I look forward to it. Here is the second trailer for the book event which reveals more about it.
S. will be released on October 29th
