New York Times - Elvis Mitchell"A loving and lovely filmed ode to obsession."
Washington Post - Desson HoweWhat the documentary discovers -- almost by stumbling upon it -- is the great pleasure to be had reading good books and, most significantly, getting to talk about it for a documentary.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger EbertThe movie is not really about Mossman, anyway. It is about a reader who goes in search of other readers, and it is a love poem to reading.
Boston Globe - Wesley MorrisThe film testifies to and dramatizes the novelist's lonely, manic-depressive condition better than nearly any other I've seen.... It's a tribute to the transforming power of reading and a reminder of the Sisyphean task that reading can be.
