The Starless Sea – Erin Morgenstern
Zachary is looking through the library when he comes across a book that has a title yet no author. He decides to check out the book to only find that the book not just has stories but it narrating his life as he is reading the book. Becoming freaked out he decides to investigate the symbols on the book. He finds a women who has that symbol on her necklace and attend the charity foundation event. At the party he comes across a note that has instructions. He follows them and meets this guy named Dorian who needs Zackary’s help retrieving his book in exchange of getting Zackary’s book from someone who stole it from him. Zackary retrieves Dorian’s book and is pushed into a room that is eerily reminding him of Alice in Wonderland where she must eat and drink things except, he must drink the concoction and roll the dice for his fate. He ends up finding himself in a whole new world where he meets Mirabel who explains the people who are that are after Zackary. These people want to shut off all the doors into the Starless Sea. It is up to Zackary, Mirabel, and Dorian to fight these people and save the doors that allow people to enter the Starless Sea.
I saw this trending at my libraries prior to the whole shut down of most public places. I had a hold on this book too and canceled it. I couldn’t foretell if reading this would be possible until now. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with some book purchases. I’m thankful he took notice and got this book. This was a really good book and I felt for Zackary’s passion towards literature. This book is like perfect for bibliophiles who love stories a lot because there is a lot of stories going on within this book. I don’t want to get into details because I wouldn’t want to spoil too much but give enough of a synopsis to provide enough interest into venturing out to get this book to read. Totally worth purchasing because its one of the books that can be reread and enjoying the story even more. I had reread this in a sitting because I loved it so much.
