This book was great. Not what I expected at all. But it held my attention to the very end. I'd recommend this book to all...

The Last Bookstore in America is an entertaining read that is thought provoking in making one wonder if all the technological advances we see in our society actually improve our lives. The story makes me wonder if Amy Stewart can see into our future. She takes the "Gizmo's" that are increasingly becoming entrenched in our daily existence, and questions if they are improving our lives, or just act as distractions? ( I have know educated people in their 20's who can't read cursive handwriting or tell time on an analog clock.) Add to this the increasing acceptance of legalizing marijuana, and you have a story that just might be the future of our culture. I think in the end, Amy Stewart wants to remind us all that keeping the best of the "old school" and incorporating it with the inevitable changes that come is the best way to go.

Light reading but enjoyable storyline and characters

The characters are likeable and believable. Though you can guess of a happy ending you keep on reading with a knowing.
