    An enchanting short story about books booklovers and a mysterious library Delivered in delightfully gorgeous prose What's not to love

  2. says:

    A satisfying bookish story that’s an exception to my resistance to the fantasy element I love exceptions I enjoyed the uiet voice of narration coupled with the tight pacing And the particular conceit of playing with literature the victory of the reclusive bookworm— all enjoyable I would have liked it to be much longer

  3. says:

    The first story was great; lovely ideas and nice degree of tension a promising startThe rest however was ruined by awful narrators and I just couldn’t waste time with it Not recommended in audiobook format at all

  4. says:

    I'm not sure it deserves a 4 but you know this is a fantasy that I think all book lovers have a magical library that's all I'll say It's a short novella give it a read it's fun

  5. says:

    Utterly charming novella that is made for book lovers It is uirky and imaginative and thoroughly satisfying despite its brevity

    Okay I read the Caxton Private Library within Connolly's book Night Music Noctures vol 2 but because it was SO GOOD I wanted to single it out with its own review Omg I was ENTHRALLED with this story I read the whole thing will sitting outdoors under an outstandingly spectacular sun in Ireland doesn't happen often by my neightbour's magical pond and still I had goosebumps Not out of fear this is not a scary tale but out of love Books about books if done well can be the start of a love affair I thinking of you Shadow of the Wind They give you that itch to read its like wonderlust for book reading Well this is a story is one of those This story is for book lovers Have you ever wanted to meet your favourite characters Wondered what they'd be like Have you ever wondered about the power of an author's creative genius Wanted to hold a first edition and feel its power Wondered what things would have been like of a book's ending was different likewhat if MacBeth was a comedy What if Daisy didn't drive into Myrtle Thought about why some characters gain fame beyond their book's readership itself you know like Don uixote Oliver Twist Anna Karenina Elizabeth Bennett everyone knows them whether they've read the book or not Expect these kinds of uestions to be raised at Caxton's Also a tangent I went through a phase some years ago where William Caxton father of English language publishing was my hero I almost bought 250 year old biography of him from a wee bookshop in Bristol and am still kicking myself that I didn't Anyway back to the story Mr Berger does not at first seemed destined for great things He has a uiet boring solitary life his love life never kicked off his job was not very interesting and then was made redundant and he has few friends or hobbies outside of books and reading He inherits a cottage in a small village and then one day comes in contact with a mysterious woman who in turn leads him to a mysterious building Caxton's Private Lending Library and its mysterious custodian and occupants I don't want to give anything away so I'll stop But really this is a 5 star story the world word building is amazing and I really want to explore this universe even further good thing he wrote a companion piece about Sherlock Holmes and Caxton's library

    I ended up reading this book on a friend's repeated insistence and I'm so glad I did The contents of this book is every book lover's dream to visit the library that houses all the first editions and manuscripts and be in the company of characters that the writer and reader have brought to life Loved the idea Loved the slow but steady narration The book though short really makes you think what Mr Berger said had the authors known that the tragic ends to their characters lead them to such a confused but ultimate and iron clad pseudo existence would they have made changes in their tales

  8. says:

    A tale of wonder booksThis is a delightful story To enter into the lives of famous characters as they become animated in 5heir own right is a pleasure a treat This is an example of the beauty of the writers craft Again delightfuland not a little thought provokinga gift for the book lover

  9. says:

    A charming short story Well worth your time as it plays on a bit of mischief any bibliophile would consider To save a favorite character to demolish a villain to set right an injustice that an author had committed These things are considered and measured Read and consider what fixes you'd start with

  10. says:

    It was a delicious love letter to book lovers everywhere I am trying to get ahold of a hard copy of this short story for my library as I 'read' the Audible version A wonderful version itself If only I could put my audiobooks on a shelf for display this one deserves the honor
