Review Detail4.1 22
I could definitely see how this book wouldn't appeal to everyone, but I enjoyed the unique writing style. I found the vague references to algebra to be interesting, and they would probably be especially interesting to teens who are taking algebra, moreso than to most adults who never did anything with algebra since high school. I thought the use of footnotes expanded the story and made it more meaningful and interesting. Another book that does this is Drawing a Blank, or How I Tried to Solve a Mystery, End a Feud, and Land the Girl of My Dreams by Daniel Ehrenhaft.
