I told her I like the Fantasy & Science Fiction genres, and I was looking for a new author.
"I have just the one," she said. "Follow me." She came out from behind the counter and we meandered up and down a few aisles. "Here it is," She turned and handed me this book:
"Hm. I've never heard of him," I replied.
"He's Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Chronicles of Narnia all wrapped up into one amazing story," she was quite excited. "You'll love it!"
The woman handed me a few others to consider and then went about her duties. I took pictures but didn't have any money to spend that day.
Later, because I'd mentioned it, my boss bought it for my birthday.
I just finished all 713 pages, and I am AMAZED!
