The Starless Sea

I was really excited to find Erin Morgenstern’s newest, The Starless Sea in the new books at the library and eager to get started on the 500 page tome. And, boy was I disappointed. Fantasy is certainly not my favorite and this one bounced around back and forth and in and out of time in a way that was, at first confusing, and then, as it became more interesting, fine. Amazon describes it: “Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student…when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages…he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues…that lead him…through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth.” Even though I finished this one, I really only kept reading to find out the ending (which I liked). However, I can’t say I really enjoyed it overall.
