Recensioner i media

I ADORED this uplifting, hopeful novel ... A joy from start to finish, this book makes you feel anything is possible -- Wendy Holden * Daily Mail * There's a wistful, warm-hearted appeal to Aoyama's paean to the power of books ... [it's] a quirky slice of feel-good fiction that you could recommend to anyone * Mail on Sunday * An endearing novel and a tribute to the transformative power of books and libraries * Irish Times * Captivating! * Sunday Post * The novel is an undeniable page-turner, its mechanism energized by a simple question, posed again and again by the uncanny librarian, Mrs. Komachi. The question brings Michiko Aoyamas characters often to the brink of tears; and not only her characters, but this reader, too. It is the great question of the library, and of the bookstore, and maybe of life: What are you looking for? * New York Times * If what you are searching for is a believable take on contemporary life in Tokyo, seasoned with a dash of whimsy, youll find your perfect match in this heartwarming novel * Japan Times * It's been a rotten year, so spark joy with this! * DAILY MAIL * Theres a special kind of magic in recommending books to other people and Michiko Aoyama captures that perfectly here. Full of charm; a genuine comfort read * CULTURE FLY *
