"A store selling other people's memories."

Just occasionally a book comes along which, for whatever reason,stands out from the others to e remembered long after the last page is turned. This is one such book.

After the death of Sarah, his wife, a young widower seems to rebuild himself and his life by restoring his home around him. He carefully and !ovinbly selects items from a local a tique shop, run by 'frumpy'. One item that seems to call to him in the store is an old solid wood door, just perfect, he thinks, for his closet..Nora helps him to fit the heavy door. It looks perfect. But when he opens it he is in for a surprise.

The writing is sedate, beautifully.crafted and understated. Strong characterisation, the situation normal, almost ordinary. There is no major drama, nothing leaping out from dark corners, no passionate love affaires, no feats of great daring do. And it is this very simplicity which transforms the extraordinary into something real and the everyday into pure magic.

Throughout, Alex Silver's gently accented voice, so pleasant to hear, continues the down to earth feeling in his reading, capturing beautifully the slow restoring of the widower himself. A wonderful book, perfectly narrated. Recommended

Time travel with a great twist

What did you love best about Jessup's Door?

The story started and ended unexpectedly. Time travel with a difference.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jessup's Door?

Strangely, the ending had me. Not sure if I would have had the strength to do what he did but I admire him for it.

Have you listened to any of Alex Silver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard this reader before and although it wasn't exactly to my taste it was ok,.

Any additional comments?

Got this as a free copy from the author but will definitely be looking out for any other books by him. This was such a wonderful change from the usual time travel stories. Very short but that didn't detract from it.

Another Awesome Short by Mr Bunker and Mr Silver

When Edwin steps into his favorite antique shop he didn't expect to find the perfect closet door and he really didn't expect to have the stores owner, Dora, at his house when he installs it, and he certainly didn't expect what happens next.

Author Michael Bunker and narrator Alex Silver bring this short story to life and take us, the reader/listener on a time travel journey that might trap or transform our two friends in ways they might just not ever recover from, and we might not either.
