Mark Dunn has done it again with an incredible follow up to his 'Ella Minnow Pea.' Like EMP, Ibid's story is also told in a creative manner. In this case, purely by footnotes. During the first chapter I was a little confused and wondered if this type of story telling would work, but after reading a couple of chapters I was hooked to this creative method of story telling. In a way we are getting bits and pieces of Jonathan's life but not the whole picture. In a way this is great because we are reading the 'footnotes' to his life, the stuff that the author did not deem important enough to actually be in the manuscript/story. So in a way, the 'insignificant' footnotes become incredibly important in the readers being able to understand Jonathan's life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
