Trailer Time: Oddity

This time picking a trailer was more difficult than usual. Here’s what I finally found:

I usually like oddities. Different is good! The trouble with oddities, though, is that sometimes they are odd in ways that are different from your own oddities. If the difference is significant, it can make interpretation difficult.

I don’t know what to make of this trailer. It’s a story that, apparently, is told in pictures, at least to some degree. For words, the first thing we get is a quote: “Dual realities brought together by a manifestation of fear.” We also have the title, The Other Side of Eve. And we get a catchphrase: “Sometimes to tell one story…two must be told.”

I’m intrigued, don’t get me wrong. Usually I’m not a fan of duality, because I believe there are always more than two sides to any story, but this is an engaging twist. At least, it could be. The problem is that I don’t really know what it is. I feel kind of clueless.

Is there enough for this to be a trailer? Or is anyone else feeling like they need a guide of some kind to make sense of it?

    Actually, the very ambiguity of this trailer makes me want to pre-order the book. The only thing that holds me back is the worry that perhaps this is a children’s book – dark a la The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Much as I loved the series, I really don’t feel like reading a book aimed at kids. -shrug-
