    An enchanting short story about books, booklovers and a mysterious library Delivered in delightfully gorgeous prose What s not to love

  2. Deanna says:

    A satisfying bookish story that s an exception to my resistance to the fantasy element I love exceptions I enjoyed the quiet voice of narration coupled with the tight pacing And the particular conceit of playing with literature, the victory of the reclusive bookworm all enjoyable I would have liked it to be much longer.

  3. Rachel England-Brassy says:

    The first story was great lovely ideas and nice degree of tension, a promising start.The rest, however, was ruined by awful narrators and I just couldn t wastetime with it Not recommended in audiobook format at all.

  4. Drew K says:

    I m not sure it deserves a 4, but you know, this is a fantasy that I think all book lovers have a magical library, that s all I ll say It s a short novella, give it a read, it s fun.

  5. Natasha Penney says:

  6. Kent Winward says:

    It was a delicious love letter to book lovers everywhere I am trying to get ahold of a hard copy of this short story for my library, as I read the Audible version A wonderful version itself If only I could put my audiobooks on a shelf for display, this one deserves the honor.
