The Uncommon Reader – Book Review

uncommon-readerThe Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

“The Uncommon Reader” is a sweet little novella about the power of the joy of reading.  Bennett has the Queen of England stumble accidently upon a book mobile at the edge of the palace, borrowing a book primarily out of politeness.  After doing this a few times, the Queen begins to lose herself in her reading, to the point where those around her begin to think of it as a problem.

This definitely is a sweet book, but I listened to audio and I think it lost something moving from print to spoken word.  A book about the love of books just really needs to be read.

Buy this book on Amazon.
