Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson
Behind the Scenes at the Museum

Karen Finlay, January 1, 2010

I LOVED this book. I had read "Case Histories" first and expected more of the same, and was surprised to find how different -- and unique -- "Behind the Scenes..." was. As I was nearing the end, I was reading as slowly as I possibly could to savor every word, already missing the characters. And when I finished, I cried. That hasn't happened to me in a book in a long, long time -- and certainly not in the past decade, which is why I'm nominating this for the Puddly Award.

Official winner or not, please pick up this book. It will be a gift to yourself you'll never forget... and that will fit perfectly.
