Very True. I like it. I feel like Dumbledore would say something like this.

read the book; skimmed some of it.
these clues make no sense to me. anna probably went to alaska because of the whole map alignment thing in the book, and because it is ref’d multiple times in the book. mr. devon is perhaps aware, hence his lying to G “narrator", or gregory, the author.

Umm I’m thinking about the whole G– thing, you know about the no-name-for-narrator and I think that the G– is actually Gregory Galloway. Because the syllables match and you know G– instead for GG. Also in the first clue the number 4 pops up many times. Any hints anyone?

OK, so the last thing that Anna says to G– is ‘with this kiss I pass the key’. Houdini and other escape artists used to have a key passed to them in a kiss, so that when they were locked up they could escape. I think Anna is giving G– a way out of town.

I read ASAS a year ago and after being reminded about by discovering a shortwave radio in my dad’s closet I decided to read look up some things about it to remind myself about it. I found the clues and am not receiving them via email. The first arrived just the other day. I looked it up and found this website which I found rather interesting… closer to the bottom of the page it quotes and song and gives a review of the lyrics and idea of the purpose of it. Though someone would find this as interesting as I did.

I’ve just finished reading every post on this page and want to lay out what I’ve decided and present a few ideas:
1) I am fairly certain G- is the author
2) I really like the idea that this is anna’s ghost story

An idea that was mentioned once previously but I’d like to state again - I think Anna may have planted the condom to be sure that G- would know right away about her vanishment. Consider how long it would take your family to tell your bf/gf if you disappeared, it most likely wouldn’t be a first move.
I think Anna was faithful to G-. Her brutal adaptation to the cold shows her dedication to the things that mean a lot to her.

I love the idea that Anna was Mr. D’s girlfriend. I wonder if the bruises that anna has could be from continued abuse from her evil ex. She writes in his obit that his girlfriend kills him - and by writing the obit itself, she kinda does.

Carl and his father confuse me most. I like the suggestion that G-’s dead sister was Carl’s father’s child - but maybe conceive during a drunken rape of G-’s mom (however morbid that sounds).
Everyone has seemed to overlook that Carl was a drug dealer - something about that nags me because he is portrayed as such a good guy. I wonder if if it foreshadows or hints at a darker side to Carl we don’t really get to see.

Any thoughts?

This has gone on so long, with no word from the author, I question the “publicity” aspects of the whole mystery. Written at the same time a successful treasure hunting books and the Da Vinci Code, I think the publisher wanted to add their own formula to the creation of their idea of a current hit book. It’s a great lead-in for a timely sequel; but where is the sequel?

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the book. I just want to believe the two will meet up again as mentioned in the last obit.

After all this time, no matter what the solution, it will be a let-down. Please put this to rest once and for all!

Also , no one not when anna could have predicted how G____ would turn in the end. It wasn’t about annas plans or about how the songs and references lead up to annas location…they all have a common theme of mystery….life….and good or bad things that have happened. And well that’s life isn’t it? The answer to the book is how people can change and grow and how no one will ever know every meaning to everything but that’s what changes us and gives life meaning. It keeps it interesting and with G____ ultimate mystery there will always be something in his life that he hadn’t figured out or hadn’t came to a reL conclusion of…unlike before anna when nothing was interesting. Now his life is different and he can thank anna for that.

I think that anna was a used by her dad and he brought up the condom wrapper as an exscuse to bin the blame on G____ for anna dissapearing. I don’t think that the obituary anna wrote for G___ was meant for him to realize she was in baton roughs waiting for him. Alot of the songs talk about trains and goinng places and how live is going to better and okay and I think was trying to tell G___ that she had to leave andit had nothing to do wit him and that his life will get better. Also I think there is.so much mystery in what she left behind.because she didn’t want to leave anything simple as to where she was or why she left. This book was absolutely the greatest novel written.

Meaning the answer must be simple? Ahh, but is it simple like snow? (meaning not really simple at all?) I really want Anna to be alive and I think she is, I mean I think her being dead wouldn’t be a good ending, a happy one. My friend told me they think, and I think they may be right, that Anna is in Baton Rogue. The obituary shows Anna and G__ (oh yes I think G___ is in full Gregory Galloway) reconnecting there, marrying, and being happy. I would love if that actually happened.

I haven’t been on this in about a year and a half, and I can’t believe how much more has been posted in that time. However, I can’t believe no one has found this yet:
- there’s a lot of theories that either point to Alaska or Russia. Does anyone realize that Alaska was purchased from Russia in the 1800s?
-Also, the whole Slocum thing with Mr.Devon- Joshua Slocum, who was the first man to sail a boat all the way around the world, has an inlet named after him in Alaska. It’s tiny, but if you google it you’ll see pictures. Joshua Slocum’s biography also echoes a bit of Anna, and, in his last great voyage, he simply disappeared and was presumed dead.
-Also, Anna getting herself used to the cold would definitely come in handy in Alaska, especially remote parts of it.
-The last time I actually took a look at Gregory Galloway’s myspace pictures, there’s an old timey one of a man with a beard a rather pointy nose- from the picture that I found of Joshua Slocum, it could be him. But I’m not 100% on this one.
I don’t know if these things help or not. Oh, also Joshua Slocum, after traveling all over the world and marrying and living in many different countries, ended up living in the south US, which is where Anna and G_ were supposed to meet up once again and get married and such.
So, I’d say it makes more sense for Anna to be in Alaska then in Russia. I’m still not sure on a lot of other things.

The Great Gatsby has 14 letters in the title asas refers to a couple of times
in the beginning of the gatsby tom asks Nick if he has ever read the book The Rise of the Colored Empires by Goddard

Hey! I just finished this book. There are several things about it that I feel are of great importance to solving the mystery.
1. Anna’s obituary of Mr. Devon is backwards. In it, his girlfriend escapes the fire which HE creates. In real life, his girlfriend starts the fire and eh escapes.

2. Has anyone else really thought about Houdini much? I really think the whole thing has something to do with him. I mean, the acknowledgements page might just be a clue intended to get us started on the whole hunt for Anna. Houdini is just so important for everything.
