If you like books and reading about books you will find this memoir delicious.
This book has convinced me to 1) upgrade my knowledge of English literature (I'm French), 2) visit and re-visit many of the books I have accumulated over the years. I am now looking at my personal library from a different angle, have added some titles based on Susan Hill's recommendations, and I am now making a rule to read one "old" book to every "new" book that enters the house. This has been a successful strategy so far. Susan Hill's style is so compelling and passionate in its own way, that when you close the book, it's as if you are coming ashore after a long journey.
I stumbled across this title a year ago and have been waiting impatiently for it to become available in the U.S. Imaginine my excitement when I received a copy for Christmas! I love to read books by others who love books. This one definitely lived up to my hopes and expectations. Susan Hill has a lovely way of writing about books and the people who write them (many of whom she has met or known intimately). A very satisfying read!
A completely delightful memoir by a passionate bibliophile.
