Jap Sam Books has released a new gamebook called The Wheel of Fortune. This connection will lead you to a copy of the book. Game Group Reading Club, a collaborative project, has been studying the creative process. The basis for a success called Determine Your Destiny is a community reading and playing of the gamebook.
This is a book with a twist: it’s part story, part game, and you’re the protagonist. The action takes place in a hotel casino on the Normandy coast, inspired by Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time and Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Gambler. The Wheel of Fortune brings back the famous ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ gamebook from the early 1990s, just before the Internet. The reader takes responsibility for the protagonist’s misfortunes. The plot shifts based on your choices, actions, and interactions with other characters throughout the novel. You’ll sometimes have to rely on luck to make choices in various circumstances and to play the games provided in the plot, such as French roulette and… Russian roulette. As you discover the various narrative paths and the unknown that lies ahead, death, opportunity, desire, and arcane knowledge will unfold.

“What are you reading this garbage for?” Karl asked, looking at the cover. Susan Howatch was one of my favorite writers as a child, and I still adore her when I reread this book or one of her other sagas, Penmarric or Cashelmara. Now, the 1980s edition’s cover isn’t perfect and makes you look like you’re reading garbage, but don’t let that deter you because it’s a wonderful novel. Her historical family sagas are all amazing, but in the 1990s, she seemed to experience some form of religious conversion, and her most recent books were more moralistic and less engaging. According to wikipedia, she had a spiritual epiphany and decided to continue writing novels, but to “put forth my discoveries in the light of faith,” which explains why some of her books are a little dull. But, according to Wikipedia, her most famous novels are the Church of England Starbridge novels, which is a mystery to me.
The setting of the story is the Gower, and this book inspired me to visit the island three times. One of the most dramatic scenes in the book takes place on the Worm’s Head, a collection of rocks shaped like a dragon (allegedly) that are connected to the mainland by a causeway at low tide. After walking it this summer, I can attest to the fact that it is extremely difficult and potentially dangerous; I nearly fell off many times.
