I only recently became aware of a most unique literary work, simply entitled S. When I had the good fortune to see an interview with its creator, J. J. Abrams, I knew immediately that this was a work that no self-respecting librarian/English teacher could ignore. I had to have this fascinating piece of literature.
I will attempt to describe this complex piece of writing, describe being a more apt verb than review at this point since I have not fully read the book. I have in fact barely begun, not yet having completed the first 50 pages that I usually allow myself before I determine whether or not it will be worth my time to continue reading to the end. I am quite certain I will finish S., but it's going to take some time, not because it is overly long (a bit over 400 pages), nor because the text itself is difficult, but because S. is an incredibly complicated work with more layers than good baklava.
