What's Different About the Novel

If you've read the RinkChat play but not the novel, you may be interested in knowing what's different about the book. I actually recommend not reading this page at all and just reading the book instead -- but if you're not sure if you want to invest the time in reading another version of the same story, this page help you decide.

There are spoilers here. However, spoilers for the those things unique to the book are minor.

I'm tempted to go into more detail, enumerating all the little additions and improvements, but that would spoil the experience. These generalizations cover most of the bases. You can probably tell that I'm excited about how the novel turned out. Writing the RinkChat play was one of the most rewarding projects I've done in years, and yet, now that the novel is complete, it's like the play was just practice for the real thing.
