really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, fiction
Read in September, 2007

I adored this book. Not only does it have a love affair with books itself but the story is so engrossing, you have to keep reading to find out what secret will be revealed next. The writing style is also impressive for its simplicity. Setterfield was not trying to impress with a pretentious style which I feel a lot of modern writers do. Instead, this was an enjoyable, stimulating read. I am excited to see what she does next.

“Do they sense it, these dead writers, when their books are read? Does a pinprick of light appear in their darkness? Is their soul stirred by the feather touch of another mind reading theirs? I do hope so. ”
