The Bookseller

The Bookseller - C. Robert Cales I am at a bit of a loss about what I thought about this book. In one way I loved it, but then again I hated it, I can honestly say this has never happened before.

The story starts extremely slow, and for the first 20 odd chapters it felt like I was reading 3 separate books. Each paragraph of the book was about a different person, life, etc and they are all totally disconnected. To be honest, if I hadn't agreed to review the Bookseller, I probably would have stopped reading long before Chapter 20.

Then things change, the 3 stories start to overlap, and you begin to understand the story, which now flows at a reasonably good pace. Finally I find myself unable to put the book down.

The characters are well presented and believable. As is the story most of the time. Having said that events in the last 10 chapters or so were not believable. I read a lot of paranormal books, as you know if you read my blog regularly, and I do kinda believe in ghosts, so I usually find it easy to believe what is going on; not in The Bookseller, that was just to unbelievable.

Overall, not a bad book, but you will have a long read before it starts to make sense and gets interesting.
