“Memories,’ she said, at last. ‘Not people, Emmett. We take memories and bind them. Whatever people can’t bear to remember. Whatever they can’t live with. We take those memories and put them where they can’t do any harm. That’s all books are."
A beautiful fantasy story about how books are people's unwanted memories captured and binding inside the pages. Reading another person's book is considered highly immoral & can be deemed illegal, due to the sacred contents belonging to another, so they can be sold on the black market for large amount of money. Despite The books darker content, it moves through a beautiful love story and was very moving and captivating. Took me around one third of the way through it before I started to enjoy it.
