The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Levin

aj-fikry9 out of 10 for ‘The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry’ by Gabrielle Levin in another Monday mini book review. (Thanks to Mundaring School for Seniors Book Club.) Book Club members loved the character of A.J. Fikry, the subtle humour and the delightful development of the story. The story is about a grumpy book store owner, A.J. Fikry, who is very unhappy with the way life is unfolding for him. The things that once gave him pleasure, such as his books and his bookstore, no longer do. Then a package arrives, and everything begins to change. This is a book with some wonderful quotes; for instance, “We are not quite novels. We are not quite short stories. In the end, we are collected works”.

A wonderfully refreshing novel about life, about change and transformation, about what we love, and about books. In short, a recommended read!
