Elspeth war Roberts grosse Liebe. Jetzt liegt sie auf Highgate, dem romantisch verwildertem Friedhof Londons. Doch Elspeth scheint lebendiger als je zuvor, denn die Erinnerungen sind stärker als der Tod. Robert riecht sie, spürt sie, spricht mit ihr. Es ist als lebe sie weiter und als sei ihr Tod nur ein böser Traum. Alle, die ihr nahestanden, geraten in ihren Bann. Bis ihre Nichten, die Zwillinge Valentina und Julia eine fatale Wette mit ihr eingehen. Vor der Kulisse des pulsierenden Londons erzählt Audrey Niffenegger aufwühlend, in zarten und manchmal dunklen Tönen, von der unstillbaren Sehnsucht, dem anderen ewig nahe zu sein.… (més)

Short, but still meaningful. Not entirely sure, to be honest, what is the purpose of the collection in the bookmobile: It's every book they've read, and they can't take out anything from the collection. So other than viewing in a single gulp your reading progress, I don't see how it inspires one to do what she did. Arguably she was having more impact on future readers as an actual librarian.

Trust your instincts y'all. I knew it was a bad idea trying this again after having donated my original copy about... 5 years ago?

Just not a fan of the writing style & story. I am, however, very excited to see the new adaptation will have Kate Siegel in it.

This is really a very short story with illustrations rather than a proper graphic novel. The premise is intriguing and I was drawn in by the picture showing some of her childhood books, so many of which I had also read. But the early promise seemed to peter out and change to frustration and a sad ending. It owes a lot, as mentioned by the author, to an H.G. Wells short story, The Door in the Wall (available at Project Gutenberg).
