The Haunted Bookshop
Roger Mifflin is the somewhat eccentric proprietor of The Haunted Bookshop, a second-hand bookstore in Brooklyn that is “haunted by the ghosts of all great literature.” Beginning with the arrival of a young advertising man and the mysterious disappearance of a certain volume from the shelves of the bookshop, a lively and often humorous tale of intrigue unfolds, generously sprinkled with liberal doses of Roger’s unique philosophy on literature and book selling.

I really enjoyed this book! I loved the way that literature helped to tell the story and I particularly liked the character of Roger Mifflin!

Such a great book; a wonderful sequel to Parnassus on Wheels. The story is filled with charm, humor, adventure and espionage, with just a hint of romance. Also, just a word about the reader: I thought she did a wonderful job. Her pacing and intonation was just right for this story and, I think, added to it's charm. Download and enjoy.

The book begins a little slow but ends with a bang. The story is very wordy and simpler language would make it a better read however it is a lovely book with many interesting characters especially Bach. If you are looking for a "haunting" in the haunted book shop revise your definition of haunted. Yes the shop is haunted but with a twist.

If you enjoy extreme detail and appreciate the love of books this is a lovely story. Inaccurately placed in the horror section though, it has nothing to do with actual hauntings. I loved it.
