Review: The Book of Speculation

The Book of Speculation The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars haha

It was a good story, I read its summary a long time ago so I didn't remember what it was about and it turned out it was nothing of what I was expecting, it was a surprise!

Even though I liked the story, it was one of those books where the characters could've sold many things much before things went bad if they just talked to each other honestly, but it's not an easy thing to do in many stories apparently.

This book is told in two time lines, the first in present time where a librarian is sent a book who turns out to have data about his past relatives; and a group of traveling performers (like a circus, before the circus was a thing) from the 1700s who stumble upon 2 very unusual characters that become the start of a curse that lasts for generations.

We find circus performers old and new, mermaids, a wild boys, an electric boy, a tarot reader and among others a librarian who turns out to be much more interesting that what we would've thought.

Recommended :)
