Something from our class discussions that I found interesting was the possible meanings of the title of the series itself, “The Unwritten,” and what it could be referring to.
I remember it was suggested that “unwritten” could refer to the way that Count Ambrosio can never die as he is “unliving.” Similarly, stories that actually remain unwritten can never “die,” in a sense, since once they are put to paper they become vulnerable to being reinterpreted, or warped, as in the case of Jud Suss.
It may also refer to Tom himself, the “real” Tom, not the one written about in his father’s stories. Although the lines between fantasy and reality often become blurred within the novels…
As a series that is still a work in progress, I guess it also may be too soon to come to any conclusions.
