S by JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst, review - TelegraphBy Tim Martin. Embargoed around the world, delivered to its reviewers only under promise of vigilant secrecy, housed in a night-black slipcase bearing a single stamped letter "S" and smothered in codes and cryptic footnotes, the new production from JJ Abrams clearly aims to bring to the literary world the kind of internet-baiting shaggy-doggery that its creator established in his TV series Lost and Fringe. This is, indeed, an Abrams "production": while JJ himself is off playing with the epic train sets of the Star Wars and Star Trek film franchises, the task of turning his concept into a novel has fallen to the writer, teacher and quiz-show champion Doug Dorst. What results is a book designed more to appeal to the new pleasures of online debate and transmedia exchange than to the old-fashioned consolations of narrative. Pale Fire is an obvious ancestor.
