A novel in letters

Ella Minnow Pea Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a very quick read, the second time I have read this book.

It is very clever, the way the author also has to use less and less letters as the story progresses. Did he start with the ending, using the very limited number of letters and work backwards? How did he choose which letter went next in order to still have enough letters to make coherent words?

I wonder why the shorter sentences that were discovered at the end have not become common usage though?
