It’s a book. It’s a book. IT’S A BOOK! This bookworm could not be more excited. When we cover the previous trailer we weren’t sure if it was a movie or TV show or WHAT! From the extended trailer for S. (previously Stranger) below we discover that the book is written by Doug Dorst, author of Alive in Necropolis. And it comes with a J.J. Abrams seal that can only mean great and awesome things are to come from this book.

Book Trailer: S. – Extended

You can follow that website to preorder your copy. Here’s the description they have listed.

One book. Two readers. A world of mystery, menace, and desire.

A young woman picks up a book left behind by a stranger. Inside it are his margin notes, which reveal a reader entranced by the story and by its mysterious author. She responds with notes of her own, leaving the book for the stranger, and so begins an unlikely conversation that plunges them both into the unknown.

The book: Ship of Theseus, the final novel by a prolific but enigmatic writer named V.M. Straka, in which a man with no past is shanghaied onto a strange ship with a monstrous crew and launched onto a disorienting and perilous journey.

The writer: Straka, the incendiary and secretive subject of one of the world’s greatest mysteries, a revolutionary about whom the world knows nothing apart from the words he wrote and the rumors that swirl around him.

The readers: Jennifer and Eric, a college senior and a disgraced grad student, both facing crucial decisions about who they are, who they might become, and how much they’re willing to trust another person with their passions, hurts, and fears.

S., conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst, is the chronicle of two readers finding each other in the margins of a book and enmeshing themselves in a deadly struggle between forces they don’t understand, and it is also Abrams and Dorst’s love letter to the written word.

I cannot wait.

S. is set to be released October 29th.
