I really wanted to love this, but found I didn‘t really care for about any of the characters, and there was not much of a plot. It was clever and cute, but not enough to keep me interested.
I am in awe of this author and this book. The first 2/3 was a bit of work, as Doerr builds this intricate web of story spanning from 15th century Constantinople to present day to a few generations in the future, but I bawled through the last third as all of the work paid off. A glorious ode to libraries and books. Amazing!!!
