Kitty is a bookseller who co-owns a little small shop in downtown Denver in the early 1960s as the world is changing. She starts having dreams that she is a housewife in the Denver suburbs with a man she almost went out with years before. The dreams become increasingly real and Kitty sees what’s lacking in her real and dream world. I don’t want to say much and ruin the book, but I, personally didn’t find the ending all that satisfying.
While The Bookseller is definitely a page turner and an easy read, I wouldn’t classify it as being a great book. Being a fast read doesn’t make it a good read. It was more of a quick beach read than the kind of book you wait to read with anticipation. I don’t know that I would recommend it.
