Description

While a tad informal, I thought the writing very good, as is the characterisation even with so many people.

Kelly also comes up with the idea of a ‘book pharmacy’, prescribing books to help people as they deal with problems, whether or not related to the pandemic.Portobello Book Blog is not responsible for the republishing of the content found on this blog on other Web sites or media without its permission.

Thank-you Netgalley and Headline books for approving my ARC request, it was an absolute pleasure to read. I like the concept of the book, as book lovers we already know the joy of reading and the idea of prescribing books as a form of medicine or a remedy is a good one. I was a bit surprised at what appear to be authorial asides about books and reading, but it works - as do the short chapters and the book recommendations. I will say that I really enjoyed the characters, both major and minor, they were well rounded and had great little stories all of their own. On the whole I found this book to be an uplifting read but there were times I had to put it down and take a moment, thanks to a couple of heart-shattering moments.Some of these books I own, and want to read even more now; some I have read and enjoyed the small summery to remind me why I loved them and some that I haven't read, but have now been added to my TBR. However this just left many underdeveloped characters, when she had written compelling main protagonists to begin with. It gives the reader total immersion into the world, but makes it quite difficult to describe what happens. I also liked the times when the author directly addressed the reader, telling us that it is okay not to love the book that everyone else is raving about, and that it’s okay to give up on a book which we are not enjoying, that reading should be a pleasure and not a chore. I work in the library and read over 100 books a year in various genres but still would not be so presumptuous as to think I could recommend books to people I don’t know.
