The Storied Life Of A.J. Fikry

By Gabrielle Zevin


258 pages

What’s it about?
This book was a pleasure to read.  A.J. Fikry is an interesting  character and he surrounds himself with lots of other interesting characters.   I usually do not like a novel that is all tied up in a bow at the end, but his was an exception.  It was just so charmingly predictable, that I could not help but like it.

What did it make me think about?
How much I would love to own a small bookstore on a small island.

Should I read it?
I think an awful lot of people will find this small novel charming, but it will especially appeal to all the book lovers out there.

“People tell boring lies about politics, God, and love.  You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question, What is your favorite?”
