Dy's Take

The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay

I started this book last April and finished it tonight.

It was a bit slow going, but underneath the literary claptrap there was a mystery and I wanted to know how it was resolved (unsatisfactorily, fyi).  I plugged away a page or two here and there–I literally didn’t open it for months at a time– for almost a year.

It was a slog;  the only book I’ve read for ‘pleasure’ in 20 years that had me running for my dictionary. I thought I hated it, I really, really did.  Then I finished it tonight, closed the book, and found myself staring at the cover thinking, “You know, that wasn’t bad.” It wasn’t good enough to save it from being listed on PaperbackSwap before I started this post, but once it was over it turned out to be better than I thought it was.

  1. the major problem with this book is that it has the word LOST in it.
