Sometimes, the best way to truly appreciate a book is to look at the finer details. Spidersilk is rich in this aspect. There are many scenes that don't just drop clues, but guide the reader to a better understanding of the world and actions of the characters. In Spidersilk the novel, one of the best background details is the theater. This amazing structure features a web-like design that was designed by Ramses. The cool thing about this is each area of the web probably leads to a different a film. This gets even deeper into the plot when you look at the film names (Mandelbrot Jumper, States of Matter, The Pattern Repeaters, White Plague, Masters of Khi, Acuteness of Vision, Kumonosu), which all lead to a different character or theme in the novel. It's funny how a few sentences can really help direct reader's in the right direction
