Pedro Panhoca da Silva's dissertation explores the convergence of literature and gamebooks. It commences with a playful nod to gamebook elements, suggesting an innovative approach. Silva categorizes various ludic products and analyzes Jonathan Green's successful adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classics into a gamebook. He then presents his own gamebook adaptation of José Frederico Ferreira Martins' "Angrid: romance oriental," resulting in "Ângela: a vingança transcontinental" (Angela: The Transcontinental Revenge). Feedback indicated a positive reception, highlighting the younger generation's interest in interactive texts. Silva emphasizes the need for gamebooks in educational settings, suggesting they resonate with contemporary readers. His work stands as a significant academic contribution to gamebook studies.
