Some time ago, I bought an e-book on my e-reader that didn't have an indication on every screen of how may pages were left (the usual "10 of 345" label). Reading was an interesting experience, because I quickly lost track of where I was, and I had no idea how close I was to the end of the book. Was it the next twist I encountered the final one (it was a mystery)? Or there was yet another culprit waiting to reveal himself? A few weeks later, I listened to an audio book on my PC (while I was doing a menial repetitive task) and again soon I wasn't quite sure how long was going to be before the end of the 10+ hours recording. This time, though, I went out of my way to make sure I wouldn't find out. I found the uncertainty of not knowing if the story would end soon or not added to the experience. As a writer, I think that I could use that uncertainty to tease the reader in some of my work, adding another dimension to the experience. I wonder if at some point, we would be able to write (and publish) something with that option, expressly stopping the reader from knowing how close he/she is to the last page. Thoughts?
