The Unwritten, is one that honestly has left me confused or feeling like I'm attempting to assemble a puzzle without having a sample to work from. However, it is a story that I have been unable to abandon.
The Unwritten begins with a young man named Tom, the son of a bestselling author. The main character of these books is named Tommy, and suspicion breaks out that Tom may just be the (not-so) fictional Tommy. Thanks to the help of his two new friends with paranormal traits, he sets out on an adventure to find the truth behind his father's story.
In Volume 6: Tommy Taylor and the War of Words, we finally get to learn where Tom/Tommy's powers originate and are sustained. The pieces are beginning to come together for both the characters in the book as well as for the reader. The stories are beginning to connect, both with the past and the present. That puzzle I mentioned earlier is beginning to come into focus. I can almost see the scene I am supposed to be creating, and it gives me hope for what is to come.
The Unwritten is a complex story, but one that I keep wanting to return to again and again. It's almost as if something invisible is drawing me back, something I can't see or name, but something that has my curiosity trapped. I simply cannot get enough and I have no idea why.
Have you read The Unwritten? How far are you in the series? Are you just as confused and curious as I am?!?
