What attracted me about Unlocking Worlds was the fact it was a book on books. For book lovers like me it was perfect! Sally has done a splendid job in compiling chapters together. The book is neat, detailed and organized.
Some of the interesting chapters I found are- Let Reading Change You, Travelers Tales, Classic Children’s Books, Classic and Contemporary British Novels and Books set in Time of War.
I was so happy reading the book because Sally has captured the mind of every reader through her love and knowledge of books. She has handpicked books that made an impact on her. Clearly her love for books is evident!
I would definitely recommend this book as a reading companion to any book lover. This book does justice by transporting the reader to different times and places. Thanks, Sally!
