» The Name of this Book is Secret — Pseudonymous Bosch.

The novel is written by an author who probably has the best pseudoname ever. Just wanted to put that out there.

The author tells us that the novel holds an enormous secret which he cannot keep, and thus is writing about it. The names of our protagonists, Cass and Max-Ernest, are not their real names but aliases so the readers cannot figure out their true identities. Yet the author still manages to describe them so they seem real, without giving away their appearances.

The plot itself was fairly exciting and at least seemed to be well thought out. The concept of synesthesia is very fascinating and something I cannot remember being explored in any other book I read. Here it is taken to the extremes, making it revolve around important plot points instead of being a book about a kid overcoming it.

The footnotes were either informative, entertaining, or a mixture of both. Even if they did not pertain to the whole story and went off topic.
