Publisher Description

iBooks Exclusive

The National Book Award finalist, now available for the first time as an eBook. 
ONLY REVOLUTIONS: THE INTERACTIVE eBOOK is unlike anything ever published before. Experience Mark Z. Danielewski’s epic creation—Sam & Hailey, Hailey & Sam, side by side, powered by an ever-rotating fleet of cars, cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself. 
 
This interactive eBook includes:  
·   A side-by-side, scrolling narrative easily oriented to read Sam and Hailey, or Hailey and then Sam.
·   Over 300 pop-up annotations. Many “road signs” also link to other places in the eBook, encouraging readers to follow themes such as Identity, Freedom, Sex & Violence, Time Travel, and Romance throughout the text.
·   Original music by pianist and public radio host Christopher O’Riley.
·   Forewords by Sarah Shun-lien Bynum (Madeleine Is Sleeping) and Michael Robbins (Alien vs. Predator).
 
By turns enticing and exhilarating, beguiling and gripping, worldwrecking and breathtaking, Only Revolutions is a remarkable feat of heart and intellect, moving us with the journey of two kids, perpetually of summer, perpetually sixteen, who give up everything except each other.

    Not sure about ebook version

    The book itself is a favorite of mine. I've been a fan of Mark Z. Danielewski for many years. This book is a fantastic story of two lovers and their interactions through time and the many different eras and styles. The sample for the ebook gives you no indication of what the book is. It's very short, has no text from the actual book also. It seems to indicate there is a new reading convention for it, but doesn't seem to let you sample it at all.

    Help: This Book Seems Buggy

    I have and love the physical book and was really ready for an interactive reversioning of this work.

    Performance —
    However, with the ebook running under the most current version of iOS (10.3 on my iPad Air), serious problems seem to exist. The text runs right up against the visible screen edge - as opposed to any reasonable kind of text block spacing.

    Scrolling is laggy as well, and the book has crashed several times just today.

    Content — I can find only one anti-concordance. Is this intentional?

    Cry For Help —
    Help me increase my app rating — which at the moment expresses optimism for the bugfix rather than the current state of the app. Can you take a look?

    Thanks all!
