This is a 464 page book, and I read it all in one sitting because I couldn't walk away from it.

In the beginning I thought it wasn't going to be for me. The anagrammed authors' names, the whole concept of a dinosaur author-wannabe travelling to a city fanatical about books, the thick paragraphs of description...it all made me skeptical. But then the book got into its stride and I was done for.

I only finished the book 3 minutes ago, so I need time to digest it before writing a proper review. Normally I prefer not to write spoilers, even behind a spoiler cut, but this time I just must get it out of my system (and it's a real spoiler, too): (view spoiler)
