This book was recommended to me by a co-worker who handed it to me and said “I think you will like this book.” Well, I did. I really did like this book. I loved how everything came together. For instance, in the beginning, we meet a character and then very little is mentioned of this character after the first chapter. I wondered why the author would introduce so vivid a character and then have the character fade into the background. But I was wrong. All things/characters come together eventually in this book. I loved the book references and the notes that A.J. Fikry left for his daughter at the beginning of the books chapters. In short, this book is about a man who owns a bookstore, people who love books, people who learn to love books, people who love people who love books, second chances, finding love, being loved, friendship, loss, loneliness, and those in our lives who make out family complete. So go ahead…read this book..I think you will like it!
