Usually I don't give a review if I didn't like the book, but felt I needed to at least say that for the most part this was an OK book
Yes, we love the smell and feel of old books.
No, we don't want technology to take over our reading culture.
But, yes, we can enjoy our beloved books even on an e-reader.
The characters are so real. Alice hasn't had an easy life, but she hasn't let that stop her.
Paul wad the picked on poor kid who becomes a multi-billionaire and returns home to exact revenge on the old hometown.
Alice and Paul have a mutual love of old books and beautiful poetry. But she hates modern technology and computer games. Paul is the computer game mogul. She wants to trust him, but has difficulty getting passed his gaming industry. He loves her, but can't seem to do anything right to let her know that he is sincere.
Love. Redemption. Traditions. All these come together to create a beautiful story.
Alice saw no consequences and her pride was so large, she should have fallen a long time ago. There came a point where her dead parents brought no sympathy, and I wanted to strangle the woman. She was sooo pessimistic it's not even funny. She thought the worst of people, especially the man she supposedly loved. She was disillusioned and judgmental. A know-it-all and a coward.
i truly enjoyed it.

I was drawn to this by the combination of a rare bookshop owner (what joy!) and a games designer who, in his spare time, turns out of print books into ebooks. For someone with walls full of books, a huge Kindle library and a hobby of turning OP books into Kindle books, it was irresistible!
The story takes place in the Louisiana city of Natchitoches, birthplace of the two lead characters, and is rich in detail of the Creole culture which Alice, the bookshop owner, is desperate to defend against the dumbing down, bland uniformity, generated, as she thinks, by technology. Enter our hero Paul under the cloak, or rather the fedora, of Browning Wordsworth Keats - the pseudonym under which he runs his website where lovers of classic literature can feed their passion. Alice and BWK begin to fall for each other via email, but what will happen when she meets Paul, the evil purveyor of technology?
Well, I’m not going to tell you - spoilers! You’ll just have to read the book :-)
These are characters well worth investing your time in.
By the way if the fact that the book is described as ‘Christian’ puts you off - don’t be. There is no preachiness or pushing of the Bible or Christianity.
I plan to read more by this author. Highly recommended.
The timeless tale of pride versus prejudice never grows stale and set against the backdrop of southern charm you would be a vampire not to love this book and the characters.
Paul, a done-good poor boy from the wrong side of the tracks has plans for his grand return to his hometown but Alice, lovely cat-mad Alice has her own plans! With a fantastic bunch of characters, including Andy (yes please) you'll be red eyed from reading. Enjoy!
