Guardian Challenge Book #1
The first book I read for the Guardian challenge (linked in the previous entry) was Armistead Maupin's hilarious Tales of the City
, the first volume in the series. This book was quick and delightful to read, with short witty chapters and engaging characters. I realized half-way through that the book was first published the year I was born, but it didn't seem dated. I loved the series of interlocking tales of the inhabitants of 28 Barbary Lane, and look forward to reading the rest in the series. Tales of the City
even ended with a bit of a mystery that one hopes will be solved in the books that follow. I give it four stars out of five!
