This book held my interest the entire time, and I was pleased with the ending. Those are the two most important factors in finding a good book!!!

The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield
The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel

I enjoyed this book. I could relate to the main character's love of books and words, and her life seemed easy to relate to.
The story of the woman she interviews, though, reminds me of V.C. Andrews' early novels. I had a difficult time putting the book down! I wanted to know what the next page had in store. There are a few mysteries involved in the story line, and I was able to guess one but not the other. Lots of shocks! I've recommended it to two other people and both loved it.
