This game is inspired by a Borges short story (The Approach to Al-Mu’tasim). Write a short, fictional review (the more hilarious the better) of the fictional book in the post above you. Then, write the synopsis of a fictional book (the more hilarious the better) for the next poster to review.
To start …
Title: Moby Dick - An Updated, Edited Edition Author: Herman Melville
Synopsis: Ever wonder what Moby Dick would be like if the dull parts were taken out? So did Herman Melville!
In this newly discovered manuscript, Melville radically altered the text of his classic novel. Gone are the boring bits. That’s right. No more stuff about Ishmael and Captain Ahab. What remains is the stuff everyone loves: the engrossing, intricate sections on whaling.
Melville spent a decade revising this edition of Moby Dick, adding new (at the time) research and extensive footnotes.
