the starless sea
“Everyone is a part of a story, what they want is to be part of something worth recording” I will begin by naming that this is a "Inception" style book where reading it once will not bring you to full satisfaction. The twists and turns created are bound to have you scratching your head throughout, maybe even cursing the author and wanting to put the book down. But DON'T! Morgenstern creates a magical world within our real world that is titillating and seductive. A world where books and stories must be protected in an underground maze, the characters fight to save what is most important to them. Her characters are multifaceted and the story is a convoluted maze of events that has you flipping back and forth between pages trying to understand what is going on. This is a must-read for any book lover, as the theme of the entire story is loving books!
