great and well rounded character with an interesting personal story.I really connected with Nina because of her love of books and her job Her quirk of knowing random facts at the drop of a hat really made me like her The quiz nights were fun and made me laugh because they always seemed to get out of hand What made this book for me was the complicated family that Nina eventually becomes a part of Having nephews that are older than her and sisters decades younger and older was fascinating I needed a chart myself to keep up with it all I wanted to keep on reading just so I could see what she ended up with during the will reading.The romance between Nina and Tom was just okay It was honestly the weakest part of the whole story It felt superficial to me and there wasn t a lot of tension or build up between them Their conversations lacked passion and substance There needed to be to their whole relationship Too much detail and depth was missing from them as a whole They were cute but I didn t feel anything for them I wanted to get back to the financial hardships of the bookstore and learning about the family All that being said, I think this is a solid book with plenty of

clever writing coupled with an array of engaging and quirky characters make this book what it is Great dialog and banter and even grammar jokes The literary references range from Harry Potter to Chinua Achebe, Dickens and Austen to SF biggies Gaiman and Stephenson, Star Wars to Flowers for Algernon I even discovered some new classics a rare occurrence for me Part Eleanor Oliphant, part Jane

Written in third person omniscience, it did a poor job connecting genuine emotion and personal drive to the characters I knew most of the character s inner thoughts, but their personal journeys never came close to engaging me Not connecting to any of the characters, including the titular Nina, meant I never really connected to the story dr A shallow slice of life story with not enough emotional
