This is one of those books you just have to write a review on, and urge everyone you meet to read, and start grand manifestations for the book to be mandatory in every school class (no matter the subject), because it is JUST SO DANG GOOD!
84 Charing Cross Road is written as letters, you follow the correspondence of miss Helen Hanff and (mainly) the staff at the little book antiquary Marks and Co on 84 Charing Cross Road, London. What starts as book orders from London to New York (because who bothers go to a store nearby anyway?) becomes a story.
Some books really need action, blood and screaming to have you keep reading – this one however, certainly does not. It has that magic quality that some books just have. You read a page, and then another one, and another one and another one and suddenly it’s just over.
