I truly enjoyed this book. which I found to be quite entertaining. It lets readers delight in how much they know about some of their favorite fictional characters. The book is organized as a series of letters to an agony aunt, here known as Aunt Antigone. The letter writers range from Jane Austen’s Emma to Bronte’s Catherine Earnshaw to Harper Lee’s Boo Radley to Anne of Green Gables and many many more in chapters on topics like Navigating Friendships, Receiving an Education, The Way We Work and a number of others.
This is an amusing title that can be read in any order. It feels like a literary parlor trick to me but I mean that in a good way.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
