A good book has a wonderful power to allow its reader to travel to new and unseen worlds; "Senghor on the Rocks" by Christoph Benda lets the reader get a vague glimpse of the setting of his novel--Dakar, Senegal--with the help of Google Maps.

The entire book is geotagged. Each page of "Senghor on the Rocks" is accompanied by a Google Maps satellite image of the area. The German novel was originally written by Christoph Benda between 2002 and 2005, but was later adapted for its present geotagged online format. Stats for Geotagged Novels Trending: Older & Chilly
