1/2 of a great book

by Margaret S on May 19, 2011

I'm really not quite sure if I would recommend this book to a friend or not. It wasn't bad enough that I stopped reading it or anything, but for me it started with a bang and then fizzled out. The author pulls you in with a mystery meets memoir, but then the book seems to suddenly change into some strange religious/ sci-fi tale, which just isn't my thing. It goes from being believable to downright bizarre in an instant. I enjoyed the format, how the author switches back and forth between unraveling the mystery of the Washburn Library and remembering the past experiences of the character. However, for me there were a lot of unexplained parts ( how did the dean even know about Ricky's promise, how to send him the note? And this "I am an oracle" stuff just wasn't enough of an answer for me, etc), and the content of the second half was just a little too...weird.
