A reader's dream come true
Ever finish a book and feel sad because you have to leave the world and characters behind? Wish you knew what the author was thinking while writing the book? This app solves all of that. Music, character videos, sound effects, and so many other extras. One of my favorite features is the red lines that you can tap on for the author commentary. It's like having the author sitting next to you and adding comments while you're reading. So, so awesome.
This is how you make an amazing book even better. If you loved Poughkeepsie, you will want this app. Reading it again brought back all of the feelings and tears of the first time, yet since I knew what would happen, I could slow down and savor it. I can't recommend it enough.
Amazing way to interact with a book
I wish I could read Poughkeepsie for the first time though this app. I am in love with the idea and with the end product. How amazing to read a story and have the mood set by a song playing in the background. Then to have the scene come to life with pictures of the place itself or even images of notes and people. Then to top it off, having the author leave notes on quotes or scenes explains why she wrote it or why it was important to her, etc. this is just utterly amazing and wish more books were this interactive or had this as an option. Great job!
