The Book of Lost and Found

The Book of Lost and Found - Lucy Foley The book of lost and found was slow moving and lacked any real punch.

I bought this book in hard back and loved the cover and the presentation. The premise of the novel had me intrigued and I felt this was going to be a book I would enjoy.

Unfortunately the story fell flat for me after about 140 pages and I think the reason for this was the lack of character development. I don't mind a book to start out slowly if the the character development and plot warrants it. I just never gelled with the characters in this novel. A good sense of time and place in a novel will keep my interested even if the characters don't and again The Book Of Lost And Found fell flat for me as well. An ok read but not a book I will be recommending.
