I am not much of a bookworm but when I get into books I just cannot stop reading. This book was one of them, I started with, "The Apothecary" and saw that it had a sequel to it, "The Apprentices", so I got the book and read it. About half way through I started listening to it on Audible, and the narrating was fantastic, it also contributed to creation of imagery in your head. I did not really know what to expect in this book except Benjamin finding a way to get to Janie. It was so much more filled with adventures and details then I expected. (SPOILER) Last but not least, the most memorable part was when Benjamin saw through Janie's eyes when Raffaello was kissing her. I felt kind of felt bad for Benjamin, but it was so cute at the end where Janie held Benjamin's hand during the play. This book was one of my favorite and I strongly recommend it!
