I had seen JK Rowling interview on The Daily Show, where I was reminded of her years spent living in a housing project like The Fields.
her characters seem a throwback to Jane Austen's. I suppose I was reminded of Persuasion, only without the happy ending. I cried at the end, just like JK Rowling said that I should.
After slogging through several non-fiction books dealing with war, torture, and the like, I was relieved to find this light-hearted book that combines a mystery/puzzler sort of book that combines history, computers, friendship and, of course, books.
The solving of the puzzle, of course.
A credible job doing the numerous voices.
I listened to this book over three days, including stretches on the treadmill and during lunch at my desk.
The subplot about the 14th century glass-making guilds was fascinating. I appreciate the background research that the author puts into her work.
The mystery mother finally speaks! Cannot wait to see if she pops up in the next book.
