What's New in Version 1.1
Bug fixes, improvements to book layout, night reading feature.
Really enjoyed this. Totally original experience. Stretches the definition of "app" though. It's more a book, movie, album, art gallery, app rolled into one. Superb direction, everything is "perfect." The design themes are retro and futuristic but they (strangely?) work.
This is genius!
I have Oprah to thank for introducing me to Wally Lamb, and this latest novel does not disappoint. What a glorious celebration of family, of women, and of Hollywood! (Old Hollywood, hooray!) And I have Metabook to thank for delivering an absolutely remarkable experience around one of my favorite authors. I loved their Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but this one pulls out all stops. It is simply divine. Bravo! Love, love, love.
This has been a great read and an enjoyable experience to listen to the background stories and intros to get to know Wally Lamb a little better.
