Talking to the character

Media Bistro has some advance news about my imminent Frankenstein book app. As I've previously said, I usually avoid the G-word (as in gamebook) with regard to this, so as not to give the impression that it belongs to the fantasy adventure genre that, for historical reasons, seems almost to have come to define gamebooks. But I'm hoping that it will appeal to people who like both gamebooks and regular novels:
“It’s a literary experience where the reader can explore the text, creating a unique and personal experience of this rightly world-famous work. As the plot unfolds, you will develop a personal relationship with the main character. That’s why we’re describing it as interactive literature – it’s a truly new kind of novel for the digital age.”
If that whets your appetite, you'll be able to see it for yourself in just three weeks' time. In the interim, the Trollish Delver has some inside info here.
