The way it's read makes it more coherent than trying to figure out the structure on your own. For a few seconds I thought you meant an audiobook HoL. And I was so amazingly confused. [m...

Re: Mark Z. Danielewski

when i read revolutions i read 8 pages of one story, then 16 of the next, 16 of the first and so-on, so that way the 8 page chunks remained intact but one of the characters wasn't constantly following the other. it was basically 8-by-8 but alternating the leader. also i sort of got a vague understan...
