A Review of a Review of a Book by Ellen Ullman
At one point, the console output informs you that if you’ve finished reading a particularly long passage, you may type a command to make the video skip ahead. I wish, however, that Sloan went further with the interaction between video and interactive review: that different videos could be queued up, or that you could pause and restart the video from the console.
(And yes, I know that interactive fiction is an old idea, but until now I haven’t seen it done in an accessible and exciting way. Or maybe I’m just out of the loop.)
