5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite!, August 10, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Q's Legacy (Paperback)
I couldn't put this book down! I read it straight through in one sitting. I didn't even put it down when I went to the kitchen for a drink, etc. Unlike most autobiographies, this one is written out of a love of writing rather than out of love of self. If you have read "84, Charing Cross Road" you will immediately recognize Hanff's touch in this book. "Q's Legacy" reads very much like one of Hanff's letters to her friends at the bookshop. It's almost as if she's come out of the pages and is there at your side telling you her story.
If you haven't read "84, Charing Cross Road" I suggest you read it first. It will make "Q's Legacy" seem more relevant.
Overall, this is one of the best books I've read in a long time and I know it will become an oft-read favorite.
