I have never read a book where I smiled at least once, even chuckled, on just about every page...or one that not even a chapter in, I lamented the book ending.
Book lovers will love the many great literary references and comments on books and writing; as will those who enjoy stories about humans dealing with human stuff: grief, death, hope, life, love...really can't say enough about it.
A.J. Fikry, the protagonist, said it best: 'Every word the right one and exactly where it should be. That's basically the highest compliment I can give.' I wonder if the author knew some readers would be saying the same of this book! I certainly do.
