LOVE this!! SEE EDIT(s)!!
EDIT: October 12
I just want to say Thank You Matt!! This has been a WONDERFUL journey, and I really hope to see more! (I'm sure others would agree, you become quite attached to the characters!! Perhaps a "1 year later"? ;).
Again, Thank You, and I can't recommend this app, (or ebook coming out), enough. I have spent the past two months, anxiously awaiting delivery of the next chapters-and challenges. It certainly was NOT wasted time-not a second!!
Except, of course, I'm extremely impatient!! I read/listen to 2-4 books/week, depending on genre; and only reading 1-2 pages worth/day is driving me nuts!! I understand the concept, but would pay for the remainder! ;)
Is there a way to get the previous days serials? (ie: before Aug 5)
EDIT: AUG 16
Unsure what was wrong, but is now working fine
Now that the story has begun, I do see that this is more of a "young adult" book. It's a decent story, and I love the concept-however, it could use some professional editing.
I'm also confused as to what this "Season Pass" is? Is this perhaps a serial "novel" without an actual ending?
this book is awesome
this is the first time i have beeen intested in a book in forever. its pure awesomeness
