Great story! I️ bow to you Mr. Riley. I️ don’t how you authors do it, but you do!! Already downloaded Pick the Plot. Yay!!! Now I’m debating if I️ should start it because if I️ do, when I’m done I’ll have to wait until April to read the last one. Lol
I’m at a loss where to begin? The Story Thieves series is written, or marketed, as a Middle Grade tale. Perhaps at its most basic, it could be considered as such. However, the way the story is written really makes one think. Riley presents us with an idea, completely far-fetched in our reality, that makes one pause and think, “well, what if ...?”
If you are considering this book (#3 in the series), then what follows shouldn’t be a spoiler. ... so, what if writers actually were get glimpses into other worlds through their fantastic imaginations? And, what if one or more of these “characters” became self aware outside their own story? Would it make sense for them to feel manipulated? Controlled?
Considering what Riley presents in this series brings me to consider a time paradox. Honestly, these books are a lot more thought provoking than I would ever have considered. That said, I recommend to anyone who enjoys a great story, a plot that is intricate and certainly not easy to figure out, and characters that are dynamic (yes, in the literary meaning) this would be an excellent choice.
I listened to the first three on audiobooks and the narrator did a great job. I believe they would be enjoyable either way. The next one that is ready to go is presented as a “pick your plot” story. Now, there is an excellent reason for this choice, but you have to read Book #3, Secret Origins, to find out what it is. That said, I’m not sure how that option would work on audiobooks? It is available however, so it must work somehow. I’m not sure which way I will go yet, BUT, I will go there.
