This novel is about Alice, a small Massachusetts island, and more specifically about an opinionated, passionate bookstore owner, an enthusiastic publisher’s sales rep, and an orphan left in a bookstore. A. J. Fikry is a

This novel was a surprise to me. After reading the first chapter I dreaded slogging through the rest of the book. I think I was still stuck in Odd Thomas, since I started this almost immediately after. So I put it down for a few days, and started it over again. I’m very glad I did. A. J. Fifkry is a very amusing character. It’s wonderful to see how his life is changed by orphan Maya and sales rep Amelia, and how in turn, he changes the lives of so many in the town of Alice.

The characters are wonderful, well-characterized and interesting.

This novel is a fantastic read. It is well written, charming, heartwarming, and wonderfully bookish. 5 out of 5 stars.
