really liked it
bookshelves: 2012-all, 2012-new, general-fiction, library-brooklyn

4.5 stars.

Totally delightful and charming. I am in love. I don't want to say any more because that wouldn't be fair to everyone else who doesn't have awesome libraries like mine that sometimes get things before they are released.

I will be buying this at some point soon.

I looked at him and smiled, a little ruefully. "I had to compare you to Wilfred Owen." / "How did I come out, in your estimation?" / "I think I stumped for Owen." (Oh my god you guys this is completely charming and delightful.)"
