LEVEL 26: SCARY NOVEL TO SCARY DIGI-NOVEL

Being a fan of serial killer dramas like Epitafios and Itchi the Killer, I’m always on the hunt for something new to scare the crap out of me especially around Halloween. Level 26 was written by Anthony E. Zuiker from CSI fame. The book is about a serial killer who fancies a plastic white suit and apparently takes more yoga than I do.

Apart from the story itself, the special sauce is in the interaction of traditional read meets online video interaction. Every 20 pages or so, the reader is directed online to watch a 3 minute piece of content meant to bridge from one portion of the story to the next. Not having the book in hand, I can’t comment on the effectiveness but I can say that the concept is pretty intriguing. Just announced today, an iPhone app has been released which marries the text and video together. Most found the process of entering the codes to access the associated video tedious so this alleviates a bit of that frustration.
