The 37th book I've read this year, and my absolute favorite. I couldn't love it more if I tried. And finally Connie Willis gets a decent cover!
First novel of #readathon done and dusted!
Tell me a book is about 19th century patent law and watch how fast I go to sleep. Unless it's written by Graham Moore, in which case sign me up! Moore is so clearly a screenwriter (this book was optioned before its release date, even) and the story is the better for it.
I adore Connie Willis but honestly the woman has just the worst luck with book covers. To Say Nothing of the Dog is even worse. (Also my library copy was missing all the periods in the first five chapters? Like the entire punctuation mark was banished.)
