"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."--Slipcase.… (més)

This was a pretty cool experience, the novel itself is just interesting enough to make you want to keep going while not distracting from the multiple other layers of story playing out on top. The production value here is crazy high, a ton of effort was put into the ephemera and making all the different pieces feel like the belong. There's a whole different layer that's left as an exercise for the reader, I wish my book club had been at all willing to engage with me on it :P ( )

I really wanted to like this book, but ultimately, I didn't find the story interesting enough at any level to justify puzzling through it. Considering you're supposed to read the thing 3-4 times to really understand it, I cut my losses and dropped the book after about 100 pages. I can see how other people enjoyed it, but it just wasn't for me. ( )

There are not many books that actually qualify as "unique," this would be one of them. It is hard to write a normal review of it since the the book operates on so many levels. I truly enjoyed being immersed in this book, in the end I just allowed myself to flow along with it. I'm still not sure I got everything that was going on, but that isn't the point (at least to me). It was weird to be reading a book that must be read in the physical form (as opposed to an ebook) to be appreciated. I do wish it came with a key so that if some of the artifacts fall out as you are reading you can know where to replace them. This happened a couple of times to me, once it was easy to figure where the tuck in belonged, the other not so much. Again though, this doesn't really matter. This is a book to lose yourself in, a book to enjoy and savor. ( )

I knew I was in trouble when I had to watch a video on how to read this book. The issue is that there is a main story in the text, but annotations in the margins between two readers (Jen and Eric) as well as various inserts, which theoretically contributed to the story. You can read the story first and then go back and read the notes, you can do this page by page or chapter by chapter. After trying the chapter approach with the prologue, I abandoned the notes completely and never returned to them. The basic story was decent although somewhat confusing, starting with a protagonist suffering from amnesia, who is shanghaied and then becomes somewhat like Odysseus as he travels with a mission, in this case to avenge the death of compatriots. I liked the main character and the strange characters/places/time shifting, but found the notations and relations between the two readers to be so bothersome that I skipped them. As another GR reader noted: "S. combines mystery, literary analysis, innovation, tradition, adventure and love in an exquisite package" so I rounded my 2.5 stars up to 3. ( )

Quattro stelle al libro come oggetto da collezione, perchè è veramente molto bello.
Tre stelle alla storia/storie contenute nel libro: questo voto è dato dal fatto che, per quanto concerne la lettura, io sono fondamentalmente una persona pigra: leggo per il piacere di leggere e non per dovermi ritrovare ad indagare su ogni minimo indizio che gli ideatori hanno disseminato nel libro, per riuscire a capirci qualcosa. Le storie sono architettate su più piani di lettura e mai completamente concluse, con una marea di riferimenti da scoprire, con una montagna di indizi da svelare, collegamenti da ripristinare e via di questo passo. Io preferisco decisamente delle trame con un andamento più lineare, mentre per le persone a cui piace estrapolare significati reconditi dal testo, questo libro è una manna dal cielo e in merito a questo ringrazio sentitamente tutti i lettori che si sono presi la briga di investigare per mesi (!!) questo testo e per aver messo on line, alla fine delle loro ricerche, le (svariate) deduzioni sul romanzo: alcune sono veramente intriganti e molto approfondite ed è stato interessante leggerle, io non sarei mai riuscita a dedicarmi a tutta questa ricerca, pur rimanendo curiosa di sapere a chi o a cosa si riferivano tutti quegli indizi.

As viewers of the final episode of Lost know, Abrams has form in creating an addictive narrative and then disappointing at the end. And, despite delivering regular high-concept pleasures, S. is finally a brilliant piece of publishing rather than a wholly coherent rethinking of the novel.

What begins at the water shall end there and what ends there shall once more begin.
Words are a gift to the dead and a warning to the living.
The story you walk into, he has learned, is always more complex than it first appears.
They're good questions, to be sure, but they have no answers, and at some point one chooses not to ask anymore.
But you ought to understand, too, that there's an attrition that takes place inside, one in which options and choices and even desires are ground ever smaller until finally their existence can no longer be confirmed by observation or weight or displacement but only by faith.  Until desire is a ghost.
