I remember old Goosebumps books which had multiple endings, and the reader would be guided by his/her choice. When I read the blurb of this e-single book, I was reminded of that.
Love might be serendipitous. When Michael sees Anna on the steps of the theatre, it’s love at first sight. He is determined to get to know her. He finds a way to get the seat next to her, and by the end of the play, asks her out to dinner. The story then stops, and gives the reader the choice of 4 endings.
I read all four endings, and I enjoyed each of them. It could have happened each of the ways, no doubt. Of the four, if I were asked to choose just one, I’d say I loved the “Rare” take the most. It was quite unexpected, and turned the tables in the opposite way of what I was expecting. The book is engaging from first to last, no matter if you choose to read just one ending, or choose to read all four.
I liked that this e-single was different from the others I’ve read so far, giving the option of the multiple endings. I might even read it again, checking the four options in a different order.
