If you love, religious history in particular Jewish history, old artifacts, particularly books, or book restoration. Then you should defiantly read this book and you will love it. If these topics are only of passing interest to you, then I’m not so sure. The author is a wonderful writer, tons of research must have gone into it, following the life of an ancient book is a really neat story, truly there is nothing wrong with this book, I just didn’t love it.
Would I recommend it? If you have one of those interests listed above, yes. Otherwise I’d recommend her book Year of Wonders (about the plague) to anyone that was a great book!
