I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's very well written. There are occasionally very short sections written in the style of a beloved children's book (e.g. Goodnight Moon) that are brilliantly done.
This was obviously written by someone who loves books and that comes through very clearly.
The story serves as a good reminder about the power of books to save people or at least give them hope.
The characters are fully developed and feel very real. I can definitely identify with how the protagonist feels.
