Saturday’s Book: “The Thirteenth Tale” by Diane Settterfield

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!

We’ll see!
