The Museum of Extraordinary Things

The Museum of Extraordinary ThingsThe Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It took me a long time to get through this book, it was lovely and it was very evocative of a growing New York at the beginning of the 20th century but it was quite slow paced and nothing really happens (that much anyway) until the end. Telling the tale of a side show exhibit, her domineering father and a lapsed Jewish photographer, I felt like I did learn more about New York in that period but nope, it turned out to be not really a book for me.
