This book was alright, but I grew bored at Part 2 of the book detailing Matt's wife's letters or journal entries. The book's premise reminded me a lot of and was similar to A.S. Byatt's Possession, minus the panache and symbolism involved. I gave up midway through the book because I simply was no longer interested in the plot, especially since I found it highly predictable.
Best of luck to the next reader!

A lovely look at the life of a somewhat isolated librarian, his love of his work, and the relationship that upsets his views of how things work. Somewhat reminiscent of "Possession" by A. S. Byatt.

I would say an enjoyable and challenging read, nothing earth-shattering.
