Still Reading

The more I read this book, the more layers there are to the story (which I love!). When I get to a stopping place each night, I find myself struggling to put it in a particular category. When I talk about a book, but don't want to spoil anything for another reader, it helps if I can put it in a category or compare it to something else. This book defys labeling or, I could say, has too many to list...and will have more before I'm done. For now, I will quote Daniel (the main character) and he can tell you...

"Well, this is a story about books."
"About books?"
"About accursed books, about the man who wrote them, about a character who broke out of the pages of a novel so that he could burn it, about a betrayal and a lost friendship. It's a story of love, of hatred, and of the dreams that live in the shadow of the wind."
