Aside from the many grammatical errors, which bothered me horribly at the beginning, I really did enjoy this book. The book’s title also confused me, but I have to put that aside because the book wasn’t that bad. This book begins in a world of the future. I love a good sci-fi book, so I was pulled in immediately! Dorner is the main character and he is being haunted by a part of his own personality. Tongue is haunting him and he is now on a journey to find out why. Dorner has many important issues please in his community that he must keep up with though. One of those is to keep his community warm. In this society, global warming has been wreaking havoc on the whole world. Dorner is plagued by some of the memories of his past though. Known as a sex fiend is his younger years, he has vowed to remain celibate. He meets Rin who is a doctor who wants to find out who Tongue is and why he is plaguing Dorner. The book shares many sexual exploits and they are well written. I love the app and how it combines art, music, and literature to become an interactive app.

While on vacation, I recently was searching for a new book to read online when I discovered the TooFar Media app by Rich Shapero on ITunes. I was very interested in the concept of combining a wok of fiction with both original music and original art for one completely immersive and interactive experience for the reader. This app did not disappoint my expectations. I easily downloaded and selected one of Rich Shapero’s fictional works, Wild Animus, on the TooFar Media app. Wild Animus is a colorful and brilliant complex description of one man’s journey to self- discovery by living and evolving into a primal form in the wilderness of Alaska. The story is beautifully written although it does not take a traditional route in the timeline for Sam, the main character. Mr. Shapero’s story is accompanied on the TooFar Media app by coordinating music, the majority of which was also created by Rich Shapero. In addition to both the story and music, artwork by Donald Pass is also included to complete the immersive experience. After reading Wild Animus, I will definitely use the app again to enjoy another one of Rich Shapero’s interactive literary experiences.

From the very start I was intrigued. What was happening in Dorners dreams? But wait, are they even really dreams? He heard voices. Voices? Female voices. This book had my imagination in overdrive. Seduction and passion in way that I would have never imagined. Yet, it all made sense. Sort of. I had to keep reading. The futuristic world was almost unsettling. How could one be held responsible for controlling their body temperature and temperament in order for the community to survive? Imagine that. Insane. What I liked the best was the way the author was able to allow the reader to FEEL the conflict in both Dorner and Rin. Love, desire, shame, and even fear. How often do you meet someone that truly accepts you for who you really are? Encourages you to face your deepest daemons AND stands by your side through it all? Oh, Tongue was a beast. For both of them. This love story was a true work of science fiction with hints of compassion and loving. While reading this, I found myself rooting for both Rin and Dorn to work out BOTH of their pasts and live happily ever after. Do they? There was love, passion, violence, jealousy, pain, ohhh and FIRE. Take your time and take it ALL in. There’s a lot going on and when you take your time and feel the characters, it all makes sense and again, gets that imagination into overdrive. Nice job.

The concept of interactive fiction is an interesting one. When I first heard of this app, I almost expected it to be an adult version of a choose your own adventure novel, but that’s what this is. It’s more of a reading experience. The story is combined with music and art specifically chosen to go with the story. It’s a very interesting idea. Who doesn’t like to listen to music while reading? This way it’s not just random music you’re listening to, but something that compliments the story. There’s also art work that goes with the story. It’s not so much an interactive look, but a more immersive experience. The design of the app takes a minute to learn, but once you do it’s very easy to use. To read the story it’s a simple swipe left or right. But you can do other things like split the page in half so you can get a closer look at the music and art work. I’ve never tried to have that kind of experience and I like it a lot. So far the only story I’ve been able to read is Wild Animus, but it was enough to get me hooked. The story telling is great and really pulls you into the characters and action. Once you start reading, it’s hard to put down. I will say my only regret is this kind of thing isn’t available on a computer. I’m not usually a big fan of reading on my phone, but for this type of book, I’ll make an exception.

Rin, Tongue and Dorner is an interesting novel with many plot twists and turns. This interactive book accompanies text, songs and art to make the book truly captivating. I found myself drawn to the main character, Dorner, from the beginning of the novel. He seems to be a truly heroic figure in the community- a prime example of an optimal citizen. Throughout the book, we learn that he has many secrets and inner conflicts that influence his life. He is plagued with guilt, sexual frustration and anger as he battles his inner demon, Tongue. Tongue makes the book interesting; playing on natural emotions like jealousy, anger, intimacy and guilt. We see Dorner’s relationship with Tongue wax and wain throughout the story as his relationship and intimacy grow with his partner, Rin. It becomes clear that only one person is to be in Dorner’s life, and it will have to be either Rin or Tongue. This creates quite an interesting tale...
