I'm a voracious reader. Every week I check out 6 or 7 books from the library and bring them home and devour them. I often wish for waterproof books because then I could stand in the shower and shampoo with one hand and read with the other. As it is, I carry books around the house with me and read while I'm brushing my teeth or drying my hair or waiting for the laundry to finish. Having said that, I very, very seldom buy books because most of them I can read and take back to the library without feeling the need to own them. Except for this book. I want this book so I can read it again and again and savor the language and the atmosphere and the marvelous characters and the breathless plot. I want to bind the words to myself like a Jewish person would lay tefillin. It was that beautiful. Most books I read quickly, but I didn't want this book to ever end. I wanted to know what happened but I also wanted to prolong my time with Sam and Grace and Olivia and Beck and even Jack and Isabel. Very few books have gripped me like Shiver.
