    "One of the best books featuring librarians that I have read is "People of the Book". Since my mom is a librarian, I really dug this book. I bought my mom a copy and it's librarian approved. "

    "this exquisitely written story literally knocked me out and as I finished the last sentence, I could not stand. The characters surrounded me and I simply had to sit and wait until they lifted away and permitted me to re-enter reality. That's how powerful every character and story, for it is one story made of many, affected me upon the finish."

    "I had high hopes for this book, but I was disappointed. It had a lot going on, but I struggled with the story line a bit. I appreciated the characters and the settings, but they weren't as strong as I had hoped they would be."

    "I found People to the Book to be very well written. It kept me so engage in stories that I did not want to put the book down. I learned a lot about the Sarajevo Haggadah that I did not already know. I personally do not feel that is should be classified as fantasy as it was a true story. "

    "If you're into historical fiction, People of the Book is for you. The novel takes you alongside a journey of a woman who tries restoring an ancient manuscript. Full of little bits of history, it's definitely a good one to sit back and read OR listen to!"

    "This is literally the story of a book as it passes through time. There are not really any characters to follow, as the main character is the book. There are interesting stories written in a style that is easy to read. Not a great book, but probably worth a read."
