The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber

My second book of the new year and our book club’s first choice of the year.  I really wanted to love this book, and while I didn’t dislike it, I didn’t really love it either.  I thought it was overlong, and long-winded.  It reminded me of my aunt telling a story and going off on one tangent after another, ignoring the fact that no one was making eye contact and in fact, had she looked closely she would have seen us rolling our eyes, but she was so inspired with her stories within stories that she didn’t realize that she’d totally lost our interest.  Well, this author did the same for me.
