“Most people can’t tell the difference between truth-telling and madness:” This quote from the book about sums it up. The Ten Thousand Doors of January is magical realism that leans way more to the magical side. January has lived most of her life in the large mansion of her father’s rich benefactor while her dad searched the world for artifacts to fill the mansion.
After her father’s death, January finds a mysterious book that leads her on a search through a multitude of worlds to find out who she really is and who she wants to be. Along the journey she learns more about her mother and father and their unusual journey to each other.
I almost stopped reading this one, because I just can’t read books where the dogs dies. So if you are also one of those people, go ahead and finish, the dog isn’t dead!
