I actually purchased this book. Lost in the pages is seven short stories all tied together. I was not a huge fan of the puzzle aspect of these books. Essentially if you make the wrong choices you may have to start the book over and read it again. Somewhat like a puzzle. I'm not a huge fan of puzzle games however this one is done quite well.The plot is decent and the stories are good but if you don't get the right answers it can be frustrating to have to restart. Decent characters, abrupt ending.

I like the story for the most part. It just seems like it needs to be longer to make the stories feel like they matter and to incorporate them into the ending. The ending feels extremely rushed and there isn't really a satisfying payoff. Also, there are a couple of code errors. One of them is that a flag appears in the story text because there is a space between the * and flag name. The other is that one of the stories seemingly doesn't have a completion flag, so it can be played repeatedly.
