Book Review Finders KeepersWe’re asking patrons and friends of the library to write mini-reviews of the books they read. You can write a couple of sentences to 200 words. Choose a new book, like today’s Finders Keepers, by Stephen King, or it choose an old classic you’d like to recommend. If it’s in the library, it’s fair game for a Mini-Review.  

Here is our first Mini-Review, today by John H.:

Do yourself a favor. Assuming you’re a reader, go get yourself a copy of Stephen King’s newest book, Finders Keepers. Well, maybe first you should read Mr. Mercedes–which is a fine book all by itself—but Finders Keepers is a sequel to it so you might want to read the first one first and so on. Not that you couldn’t read it all by itself–you could but all the characters are introduced in the first one and… You know what? Just read them both in whatever order you want.

“But,” you’re saying, “I don’t care for horror novels!” Well, then these are for you. King has managed to turn out some page-turning detective novels with nary a creepy nor a crawly to be found and that are guaranteed to be un-put-downable. Actually there’s not a guarantee attached, but trust me, library-review-reader, you should give them a chance.

Write your own Mini-Review! Whether new, or not-so-new, tell us what you thought of the book, in 200 words or less, even just a sentence or three. Loved it? Hated it? Would you recommend it? Why? We’ll post your review here on the library’s blog and you can share it wherever you’d like. We won’t pass along your private info or email address. To email your own mini-review click here!
