I finally got my hot little hands on a copy of S by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. I've wanted this book since I first heard about it, and I finally accumulated enough survey points to get it from Amazon (I know, I know, they're evil, but I don't have money for books right now so I'll take it).
Abrams (Lost, Alias, Star Trek) came up with the idea, and Dorst wrote the book. It comes in a black slipcover, and looks like an old library book (complete with date stamps in the back).
In between the pages, there are lots of interesting items like photocopied telegrams, postcards, and even a map on a napkin.
On the pages of the book are written notes between two people who are deciphering the history of the (fictional) author of the book.
I can't wait to read it! I love this sort of thing. Lost was one of my all-time favorite shows, and one of the things I loved about it was the mysteries embedded in the story, things you had to pay attention to to notice.
It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a book. I'll let you know what I think after I've read it!
