Twelve Blue by Michael Joyce is a hypertext story of murder and drowning. There are different stories.  There is a story line with eight different numbers ranging from 1-8. In the beginning, the story starts with a sort of romance between a girl and a man then the reader has to leave the first story to get to the story line. The story is mostly written in blue but there are other colors on the left side of the story line. There is some type of connection between every character in the piece. As Jessica Pressman describes it in her article “Navigating Electronic Literature”, the navigation is part of reading an electronic literature piece. The reader, not only read the piece like it is done in regular literature, but interacts with the piece. Personally, I think, it gives the reader more control to scan what is more important for he or she to read.
