By: Helene Hanff

5 out of 5

A true treasure for all book lovers!! At first, I thought Hanff was a rude selfish woman, but quickly learned to love her sarcastic humor.  Taking place when food rations were among their highest in London, Hanff is an extremely unselfish person. She JUST loves her books. I could relate to a lot of her feelings and relationships with her books. Her correspondence and friendship with book seller, Frank Doel  which started over a request for a rare edition of a book spans over 20 years. This lovely novella, told through the letters written, will touch every book lover and make you cry and laugh, sometimes at the same time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS STORY!
