I stayed up until 12:45am on Sunday finishing this, then had to stay awake for another hour reading theories about it on the internet (and was duly sleep deprived on Sunday). So. A few things.
First, I've been enthusiastically shouting at people about the Limetown podcast for the last three years. The setup? Three hundred men, women, and children go missing from a mysterious research facility; a decade later, a determined reporter starts getting phone calls from survivors. It’s my favorite audio-drama, and if you’re into thrillers, mysteries, sci-fi, or conspiracies, it might be up your street too. I’ve listened to it several times and it’s still totally riveting.
Second: this book! It answered some questions, introduced just as many new ones, and did some nice world and character building in the process.
Third, if I’ve sold you on it, here’s how to do this thing: listen to season one of the podcast, then read the book, then listen to season two. Yell “WHAT! AHH!” as needed. Go forth and enjoy.
Oh. And fourth. I saw @zacksakers, @outdoorskip, and @cotesmith at @powellsbooks last week and didn’t say any of the things a polite person should say when meeting the people who make stories they enjoy. It’s just because I was excited. Thanks, guys. This has been a really fun thing to shout at my friends about.
