The Escape Book by Ivan Tapia
The Escape Book: Can you escape this book? - Ivan Tapia

Have you heard of the escape rooms? They are places where you go and by the choices you make you work your way through a type of maze to escape a room. This book is the same concept just in book form. You read a part of the book then by doing a puzzle or solving a riddle you figure out where to go next in the book,.


Some of the puzzles are really easy others are a bit harder. The book is kind of fun for the puzzle solver in all of us. The book did keep me entertained even if the story was a bit silly to me. 


I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

The Escape Book
The Escape Book: Can you escape this book? - Ivan Tapia

The Escape Book has the concept of an Escape Room, but in a book, how cool does that sound?

I've done a couple of escape rooms, and I'm proud to say my escape rate is at 100% (though twice really close with either 17 or 2 seconds left). I quite like them, and combining them with a book made me really curious, but slightly afraid also, because of course, I'd never read an escape room.

There's text until the main character reaches a puzzle, which you will then have to solve in order to know at what page you have to continue reading. In my electronic review copy, numbering was off, which made it harder to find the right pages. There was also the limitation that the solution to each and every puzzle is a number. While I understand, it would have been nice to have some more variation (which isn't thrown in until the very end). However, the story in between the puzzles is repetitive, vague and at times I wanted to smack her because she spends a lot of time pondering where she should be going through the maze.

A fun book for a rainy afternoon, but it couldn't really grasp the escape room feel.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
