I downloaded the audiobook to listen to on the bus to work. I could tell it was short - initially it said 3 chapters. It turned out to be an introduction, and chapter one split into two.
I don't mind short stories, and this one being mostly in the form of letters back and forth between the two protagonists was promising. Especially since the characters are a librarian and a bookshop owner. My sort of people.
Yet I was left strangely unsatisfied. The premise held promise, but for me it failed to deliver.
Someone I follow has just posted a review of 84 Charing Cross Road, the book and the film. It sounds to me like this is the same premise - but done right. I have added 84 to my reading list. It will be an interesting comparison. ( )
