    Guaranteed to capture the hearts of everyone who truly loves books, The Bookman's Tale is a former bookseller's sparkling novel and a delightful exploration of one of literature's most tantalizing mysteries with echoes of Shadow of the Wind and A.S. Byatt's Possession.

    George says: "One of the best books I have read."
    "Chick Lit. Nancy Drew but with sex."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. Story has potential, but seems ploddingly and amateurishly told with too many easy coincidences. Lovett's facile and formulaic treatment of his story frequently bordered on banal and wasted what might have been a really good tale. I was tempted to just put it down and quit several times but kept reading just for the story line. It needed a good editor and rewrite.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story line.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I would say the narrator did it justice by a reading as spiritless as the book itself.


    Did The Bookman's Tale inspire you to do anything?

    Gag.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that does it.
