Arcadia by Iain Pears - The App

Three interlocking worlds. Four people looking for answers. But who controls the future – or the past?

Bestselling novelist Iain Pears has conceived his new work ARCADIA unlike any before it, to be read as an app, written using specially-commissioned software and developed for readers by Touchpress and Faber, the partners behind multi-award-winning apps including The Waste Land and Shakespeare’s Sonnets for iPad. It will be released as a free app with in-app purchase on the App Store for iPhone and iPad at the end of August, prior to the novel’s UK hardback publication on 3 September 2015.

‘The finest pure storyteller working in popular fiction.’ Malcolm Gladwell

ARCADIA, the app, presents all of the possible ways Iain Pears could have told the story, and lets anyone become the master of their own journey through the book. Readers can approach it as a series of traditional linear stories; or they can switch rapidly between tales and worlds. They can read, or leave out, sections as they choose. In the app, the entire story is mapped visually, and each reader’s map will become unique as it records their journey.

Different ways of reading create different relationships between the characters, and a different understanding of how stories can be told.
