Review: The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: A Novel
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A friend had recommended this book and I did not have a chance to read it last year. I put it forward as a suggestion for our book club at work and it was selected. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry is a gem. Any book lovers will love all the book references in this touching story. I could not put is down. It is beautifully written and the story has all the right elements that can only be put together by great authorship.
The book is filled with awesome quotes. Here are some of my favorites:
“You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question, What is your favorite book?”
“We aren't the things we collect, acquire, read. We are, for as long as we are here, only love. The things we loved. The people we loved. And these, I think these really do live on.”
“A place ain’t a place without a bookstore.”
and my favorite:
“Someday, you may think of marrying. Pick someone who thinks you're the only person in the room.”
Please read this book... it is so beautiful!!!
