I had a hard time getting into the story, but came to care for the characters and ended up enjoying it! I'm glad I read it before the movie comes out!

Not a fan of the audiobook... But I think that's due to the style of writing. I'm a fan of Anne Rice and think I would have enjoyed the book book more

Moving sucks..... Moving especially sucks when you have 18, yes 18, boxes of books! 🤣❤️🤣 Literal book haul! 😂

Zelma Ugh! Moving so often finally cured me of having a large library. I am rebuilding now that I am settled in one place for awhile, but I got tired of lugging around tons of boxes. 13mo
AmyG Yes..moving does suck. May time go quickly for you. 13mo
Ashley_Nicoletto The only time my mom complains about my reading habits are when she helps me move. “Whyyyy do you need so many books? This is just ridiculous.” Shhhhh, mom. It‘s fine. 13mo
JoScho I just moved and it sucked a lot! I feel you! 13mo
Soubhiville I‘m in the packing process now! My move is the 24th. Best of luck to you! 13mo

I felt like I was having a hard time getting into the book, but at the same time I kept feeling drawn back to it. In the end, I really liked it. I laughed, I cried, my heart raced, I got confused and reread pages, then understood like lightning. I don't know if I would call it horror, but it had its thriller like overtones. I found it a very unusual and I can definitely see it not being for everyone.

I liked it, didn't love it... Interesting look at rare book collecting and rare book stores. Unusual look at why someone steals, but felt disjointed and because of that too way longer to read than it should have!

"(She) removed several knives and hid them in strategic places around her body. In her left boot. Secured in a holster on her right thigh. Several up her sleeves. Three around her waist. One she even slid into a pocket in her top hat... 'where are we going?'... 'The National Library.'...'And will we need so many knives?... I'm not much of a reader, so maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think the books will attack us.' "

This book... Wow... Lauren Slater has taught me so much about being a woman and mother. That it's OK to not be perfect and have melt downs and to sometimes screw up!
