I read quite a bit, but there are only a few books that I would recommend to my husband, knowing full well that our literary tastes are quite divergent. However, I’ll be leaving this one on his nightstand, as I feel that this tale appeals to a broad and diverse audience, and I’d recommend it to just about anyone. I read it alongside a couple of other books I was picking my way through, and that helped to move along the parts of the story that seemed to drag. As a random aside, the weathered color of the cover and frayed, feathered edges of the pages totally appealed to my girly side. I felt like I was flipping through a dusty journal found in my grandparent’s attic, and made the experience all the more enjoyable. I may be a bit weird (and alone?) in that last one, but there it is.
