Books We've Read
Behind the Scenes at the Museum
This was one of my choices and was chosen largely because I had already read and really enjoyed it a few years ago and I thought it would be a good way to get to read it again. So, that makes it all the more odd that I didn\'t manage to finish it second time round. Firstly, this is one of the few modern books I\'ve read that feels to me like \'literature\' (whatever that means) rather than just a fun/boring read. It has a very dry slightly dark humour which is probably why I enjoyed it so much the first time but wasn\'t in the right frame of mind for it this time. The story is centred around a young girl around the end of WWII but makes excursions back into the family of several generations. It also has a twist (or a reveal, to be more precise) which did add a bit of fun to re reading it - spotting all the clues that I missed the first time.
