Review: The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m trying to find a way to review The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry that isn’t too trite or too cliché, but in the end, all I have are A.J.’s own words:

“A question I’ve thought about a great deal is why it is so much easier to write about the things we dislike/hate/acknowledge to be flawed than the things we love.”

This is a book for book lovers. It is not flaw free — I found the narrative was sometimes rushed; great spans of time were condensed and I found myself wondering how much time had passed from one paragraph to the next. Nevertheless, I gave this book five stars because I was enchanted by the story of one man and the ways in which his heart and his mind are opened and set free.
