  1. This book sounds fantastic and I already checked my public library’s catalog. They only have it as an audio book – do you think it would translate well into that format?

  2. I just read another review of this one today, and it had me thinking about buying it. After reading your review, I now know I can’t resist. I love books that are set in this time period, and the way that you describe the writing makes me really eager to read it. I also love that it’s sort of written as a flashback from the 60’s to the 30’s. So glad that you loved this book. I am off to see how soon I can have it in my hot little hands!

  3. This book sounds wonderful. I’m already intrigued by Kate and the mysterious Tinker. The set is perfect, of course and I adore the time period. I’ve been wondering about this book and hoping it was as good as it sounded and your review, the first I’ve read, has me convinced this is a book I muct read!

  4. I really loved this book and I’m so glad that you did too! I don’t think Towles put a word wrong – it’s a beautifully written book. Combined with the great characters and atmosphere, that makes it a true gem.

  5. I am thrilled that you loved this so much! I’ve been drooling everytime I see this so I need to get my hands on this stat. It appears to have everything I like in a book.
