2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. M. Pollack on August 2, 2011
Format: Paperback
The ideas in this book are so incredibly different from anything else I've read about textuality, digital media, and criticism! It outlines in theory and in practice the possibilities for rigorous scholarly PLAY in a hypertextual format. Mind bending. Exhilarating. Can't wait to put some of this into practice. It's a new, truly constructive way of interacting with literature and a new way of doing interpretation of texts.
