You read the book. It is a rigourous scientific refutation of the existence of God and a critique of the insanities inherent in religious belief.

You read the book. It's a crime-thriller with some missing pages, making the ending very confusing.

You read the book. It's a chilling social commentary disguised as a lighthearted fantasy story.

You read the (angelic) book. The book's pages are filled with sifting, glowing runes. It is quite comforting, although incomprehensible.

You read the (demonic) book. It instructs the reader how to rouse, direct, and shape public anger and civil disobedience, with the final result being a bloodbath of a coup.

You read the (demonic) book. It is a colourful childrens' book about puppies and kittens. The book's binding is bleeding.

You read the book. It is:

a graphic novel centred around an extremely antisocial journalist in a bizarre future.

the story of how the devil quit his job and became a nightclub-owner. The main character has a certain dark charisma.

a story of labyrinthine plots between various powerful individuals, all vying for ultimate control of the known universe.

the latest in a series of allegedly young-adult books, though every installment seems to be getting darker.

"You read the book. It seems to be an edited version of a commentary on a short video about a house that is a labyrinth. As you read, the words twist and spiral around on pages, and you begin to question your sanity."
A little long, so we could replace everything after the bold with: "In short, a book that is a labyrinth".
"You read the book. It appears to be a crossover between Sherlock Holmes and a British Serial about some doctor with no name, with a backdrop of Lovecraftian Horrors."[/b]
