    One thought on “Patchwork Girl”

    1. I am bored so in light of thatPatchwork Girl, quite frankly, pissed me off at first It was too disorganized for my liking, but because I had to read it I made myself work through it And, it turns outI quite loved it The disconnectedness, the lack of structure, and overall madness worked with the story I find that it does have a structure The structure is that each part stands alone but exists together as a whole, like the patchwork girl herself.I particularly loved the little bits that regarded [...]

    2. The premise is great, Shelley Jackson s writing is good, and the way she makes use of Mary Shelley L Frank Baum s classics as well as postmodernist Marxist feminist texts is brilliant However I think the publisher did a bad job in portability I find the UI on OS X to be awkward ugly.

    3. I applaud the efforts to frontier hypertext, but there were some serious technical difficulties First of all, the flash drive from the company isn t good on PC, so you have to find a Mac I also had to click randomly on every page to make sure I wasn t missing anything I almost didn t read the majority of the America scene because I didn t realize it existed Getting past the technical fumbles, I did like the narrative in the story once I was able to find it Patchwork Girl focuses on the creation [...]

    4. My very first hypertext It was interesting and I made some connections about pomo that I wouldn t have made without it If you re interested in reading a kind of Ultimate Choose Your Own Adventure with a high literature feel, feel free to borrow my copy It s kind of hard to find.

    5. The hearts roost like pheasants on high bone branches When I shinny up to examine one closely I will discover the source of the sound I have been hearing since I first wandered into the jungle the hearts are alive, they beat at a slow, nearly vegetable rate, with a deep cluck and boom.

    7.

    9. Shelley Jackson s Patchwork Girl is one of the most innovative hypertexts to be sewn together, structurally and thematically Although confusing to navigate at first, the text unravels itself as the reader becomes accustomed to the nonlinear, interactive structure of the story Where Patchwork Girl excels the most is using its hypertext medium to enhance its thematic ambitions.Contemporary feminism plays a huge thematic role in Patchwork Girl This is shown most obviously through the gender that Ja [...]

    10. Shelley Jackson s classic hypertext Patchwork Girl was a quicker read than I expected I spent about two hours altogether before deciding there were no unread sections remaining, so I would consider this a short story rather than a novel Still, it was a fun story gothic steampunk, but with a feminist edge The action follows a female monster, begun by Dr Frankenstein and finished by Mary Shelley, who is apparently better adjusted and sexier than her male counterpart The theme of the joining of div [...]

    11. I wanted to love this interactive book as I am writing interactive novels and nonfiction myself and went to it for inspiration.The interface is a confusing and frustrating Nothing engaged my interest long enough for me to want to follow the story.The book receives rave reviews by whom, I had to wonder great PR.I left the book cd based figuring it was created in a pioneering period of interactive writing One of the bump periods as we invent this new literature I don t think the form will work unt [...]

    12. Hypertexts are near impossible to access today, but if Patchwork Girl is the only hypertext you ever read, it is worth it A feminist take on Mary Shelley s classic in which the form and way of reading the text is as much a part of the text itself, the story or variations of the story must be pieced together by the reader, just like the story s subject While hypertext very quickly died out, Patchwork Girl remains an iconic work of literature, even if every other text of its kind has been long for [...]

    13. This is the sort of thing one never stops reading I did a big chunk of it one day and it was exhilarating.every now and again I boot it up for If you enjoy allusions and updated fairy tales then this is worth the effort to find and click thru.The format is a little confusing the software could use a newer version and the txt was really tiny.The story loops back on itself and is an excellent exploration of composite identity and non linear story telling.Truly innovative and still relevant, despi [...]

    14. Really truly fascinating such a brilliant hypertext Not normally my medium, but Frankenstein is one of my all time favorites and I found this both entertaining and really fascinating to navigate through The spontaneity of each reading is great too you can just click anywhere and form the story on your own So good

    15. i LOVE this book the experience of figuring out to how read it, then giving up just reading through each part taking them as they came they link together associatively anyhow, and it s all quite breathtaking.

    16. Read for teaching ENGL 295 First long form hypertext I ve read, so it was interesting to see how the reading process played out Loved the intertextuality and play on the physical navigation of the lexia, the writing sewn juxtapositions, etc.
