The original interactive children's gamebook series Choose Your Own Adventure has arrived to the iBookstore. While you can't keep your finger in the pages of your tablet, the classic choice-driven stories starring YOU come to digital life with an interactive map that lets you know where you are in the book, and also gives you the option to go back and try a different path.
Race Forever by R.A. Montgomery As soon as you could see over the steering wheel of an SUV, your father began teaching you about cars and driving. He is a former racecar driver himself. You have planned this trip to Africa for months but at the last minute your dad has to cancel. You are on in Africa on your own, facing some of the toughest driving conditions in the world. And some of the most unscrupulous competitors...
The African countryside is filled with hazards and risks. The winner of the race will gain fame and even sponsorship. But flash floods, charging elephants, and the band of local guerrillas turn out to be the easy part. The drivers who will do anything--anything--to win may be the biggest danger of all.
"I have to say, it is great. The transition to the digital medium works very well. Though I hadn’t read one of these books since I was a kid, the experience hadn’t deteriorated over time, and the new interactive features made turning pages much faster. Also, I didn’t accidentally see some of the other storylines." - Wired
"Print may be dying, but that doesn’t mean that its single greatest contribution can’t make the leap to digital with these Choose Your Own Adventure books on iBooks. True to their 1980s roots, these stories are still presented as books with links to other pages at critical decision points. However, there have been a few upgrades — such as a map to help guide your way." - Geekosystem.com
