Book Overview

Don't miss Gabrielle Zevin's new novel, Young Jane Young, coming in August 2017.

"Funny, tender, and moving, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry reminds us all exactly why we read and why we love."*

A. J. Fikry's life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But...

Love books about books and book shops.

Not entirely sure

Honestly, I can't decide how to feel about this book, so I gave it 3 stars. It was good enough for me to read over the course of one day, but I can't really pinpoint what I liked about it. And i have a feeling that the plot may just fade into nothingness in my mind....or possibly it will remain as "the book that I kind of liked somehow, but was also off and I can't explain WHY." The characters were cute and some of the dialogue seemed like real conversations between real people. However, I'm not sure I'd recommend the book to friends...seeing as how I wouldn't be able to say why I recommended it. There was something about it that seemed superficial, despite the fact that it's about love and sometimes the connections are portrayed very well. It's like some elements should have been more important and given more depth since the author put them in the book, but they only scratched the surface.


A great page-turner to curl up with! Unforgettable story and characters.
