Synopsis: Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father, who repairs and binds books for a living, can “read” fictional characters to life when one of those characters abducts them and tries to force him into service.
Review: I liked this book at first. It is trully a book for people who love books.That is the best part of this book when it is showing different aspects of books and reading. Every chapter had a qoute at the beginning to a childrens classic which really made me want to read children classics more.Unfortunately, maybe because I switched to audiobook for the rest of this reading journey my excitement went down as the story progressed. The awesome bookiness was still there to keep me but it was not enough. For one thing the characters did illogical things a lot for no aparent reason. Maybe it was because I was listening to it. But I really feel like something was missing or I missed something. Then the realization Halfway through the book that I do not remember that much. After that the conclusion that came to mind is that nothing really happened.None of the awesomeness of the premise went anywhere. Then came to ultimate conclusion that it is really forgettable.
At the beginning of the book I was thinking it is better than The Eyre Affair ( which it still is by far) who I did not like either. But at the end of both I just felt like something was missing.
