Scratching my head...

The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: Free Preview plus Bonus Material - Gabrielle Zevin

I should have loved this book.  It was a book about books.  It had quirky characters.  There was a love story.  There was a mystery.  There was a baby.  


Add sugar and this book should be on my favorites shelf.  


It is not.  


The author chose to go the unexpected route and throw some tragedy in for good measure.  It not only did not fit,  it seemed like the story was sad for sad's sake.  I felt manipulated at the end. 


So this book just gets a solid OK from me.
