I collected and assembled them, trying to solve the mystery of this unexpected discovery, and am now passing the task on to you.
Your mission is to become the new author of this work. You will continue the research and provide the content. In order to complete the task, you will have to undergo some secret intelligence training, which is included in this volume. Since no one knows what lies ahead, please proceed with caution, but know...this book does not exist without you.
Yours truly,
Keri Smith

My Opinion:
What a fun book, and creative on so many levels.
You literally go through the book doing tasks to help "finish the book". At first I wondered where it would all lead, but all good things must come to an end. And it did.
It took a while to get there, and some serious work on my part, but it was worth it. I learned a lot about exploration and collecting and did some ponderous thinking throughout the book. I really love books that challenge you or your mind.
I don't think everyone will have the patience to actually go through the book and do every task, some do seem tedious, but they are there for a reason.


3/5


Recommend? To creative minds, yes.

  2. Sounds odd. I'd probably give up.
