My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
I'm not sure what I was expecting when I started reading this book. I don't think I quite understood that it as a mystery, and I thought it would be darker than it ended up being. It felt like The Da Vinci Code towards the end (and I mean that in the best way possible).
I really enjoyed reading The Bookman's Tale. The twists were all pretty predictable, and some of the characters felt a little flat, but the fabricated history of Greene's Pandosto was interesting. I'm a sucker for books about books, and this was a good one. I think it would make some good fall weekend reading paired with Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore.
