After reading the epic, powerful book “The Day Lasts a Hundred Years” I chose lighter fare.
Perhaps too light.
I was attracted by the books on the cover and by the fact that it is a novel about books and book lovers. I’ve only read two chapters so far. The descriptions ARE lovely – I can just imagine that bookstore! And I like the musings about the mortality /vs immortality of books!
However, those little red signs in my head that say “oh come on!” and “too soap opera-ish” have already begun flashing.
The book is very readable but if the frequency of those flashes rises I may use the QUIT option!
