The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

… Not for me. The story was ok. An admirer of fiction from a very young age I could relate to the main character and her obsession with books. I have never been a person to recommend books on a personal basis unlike her. I would seldom tailor my recommendations to what you/him/her would like.

I found the transition between sections unsettling. “she wondered…” and that’s it. No more elaboration on what she wondered and we are off to a new chapter/section. The tone was similar to the book “The Assistants” ¬†which I haven’t reviewed here. I thought I was irritated because I had listened to it rather than had read it but that was not the case it seems. Unlike “The Assistants”, at least the story gets better in this book.
