    Description

    In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored and utterly out of place.  

    But her quiet existence is shattered when she stumbles across a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page reveals more impossible truths about the world, and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.

    Commentaires

    "A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through...absolutely enchanting." (Christina Henry, best-selling author of Alice)

    "A gorgeously written story of love and longing, of what it means to lose your place in the world and then have the courage to find it again. This book is a door I'm glad to have opened." (Kat Howard, author of An Unkindness of Magicians)

    "A tantalising quest through strange and beautiful places and a love story that spans time, worlds and magic. I couldn't put it down." (Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M)

    incredibly boring

    maybe it is a good read for a teenager, but I found it extremely boring. and the accents the reader makes are just unbearably annoying...

    Melodrama

    Fun. Interesting concepts. 30% too long. Melodrama is the best description I can think of esp after the way too Baroque ending

    great worldbuilding with a stupid MC

    In almost every tense situation the main character either freezes or does something stupid. Like when you hold an armed enemy at gunpoint its definitely time to close your eyes and grief for someone you lost...

    The story begins with the last two chapters

    The book began interesting with the last two chapters. Actually you only need to read the last to chapters to understand the entire book. It was though an easy book to follow.

    Beautifully narrated compelling fantasy

    This is a beautiful reflection on stories, what they conceal or reveal about our world, escapism and self-discovery. But also an amazing adventure created by a powerful imagination with commentary on race, gender, class and colonialism.
    The narrator does a magnificent job of giving each character a distinct voice. The kind of book you can't wait to get back to and that you wish would never end.

    YA

    That's a VYA novel, that is, a Very Young Adult novel. The characters lack any kind of authenticity and the plot feels rather autogenerated.
    The voice actor is great, though.
