Does anybody here employ this technique of using a lot of these sort of things for the sake of interest? Do you think it's a good idea and can be employed well? Because it seems to me that when people gather to discuss stories, an often glaring discussion point is rumours, mysteries, hidden meanings, eastered eggs, unanwered "subtle" points and so on; not "glaring" or cheesy stuff, but just subtle things throughout the story. It seems to be a way of gathering interest and when people find out about these there's a general "that's awesome, I wanna grab the book and check that out" reaction. I think that, while it alone is obviously not enough to get people into the book, it probably reinforces the book to people who have read and enjoyed it. Thoughts? Anybody do this?
