This is the 3rd book I've read in the past month by John Harwood and I am quickly becoming a fan. The Asylum is a psychological thriller set in the 19th century and as soon as the first chapter opens you are right there with the main character, panicking at the circumstances she finds herself in. I enjoy how Harwood uses different and unreliable narrators to reveal the story. Fun read.
. I am fascinated with old books and I relish in the smell and feel of an old piece of literature. I cannot imagine an old book being thrown in the garbage hence I take old novels and preserve the past for the present generations to experience. https://www.etsy.com/shop/volumevii #books #vintagebook #usedbook #bookshop
I work with old books like these every day. I especially like what you sometimes find inside old books: love notes in fading calligraphy, a dainty piece of lace that must have been a bookmark and, best of all, a perfectly pressed leaf or flower from some faraway time and place.
