The Keeper of Lost Things

A charming and compelling read. Almost comparable to a Russian doll with smaller stories intricately woven inside of each other. Brilliant !!

A great name

There was nothing I didn’t like about this book. From the very beginning I was captured, a fabulous read

Boring adoration of upper class

Dull description of lower and middle class women lusting after and adoring older upper class men. After reaching the line "a school full of chip-fed, benefits-bred kids, most of whom already believed that the world owed them a council flat, a baby and Nike trainers." I had to stop. Not worth wasting your time on it.
