really liked it

The title of the book grabbed me and then reading the first page and finding it to be a quirky read , decided to give it a go. It's a very different book from anything I have read previously. Not easy to describe. It doesn't go at a fast-paced rate and is certainly put downable which is the reason for giving it a 4.
Sue is a writer and is trying to improve it and is always learning new words. While on holiday abroad, she discovers a book which seems to be about the house she is living in with her aunt . She reads the story of the book throughout the novel which gives it a whole different feel.
The characters are all different and are mostly eccentric. The story doesn't reach any particular conclusion and is not predictable in any way which I like.
It is difficult to write much more without giving away plot etc. It's a light read and a gentle one so if that's what you're looking for as a summer read, give it a go and see what you think.
