really liked it

It is very difficult to give an inanimate object a moving history, but Geraldine Brooks does an exquisite job in the People of the Book. I love the little mini novellas surrounding the provenance of the book interspersed with some of our most troubling recent history. The People of the Book is eminently readable, enjoyable and worth every moment spent reading and re-reading the passages.
