I was surprised by Surprised by Oxford! I thought it would be heady, intelligent, and boring. It was intelligently and brilliantly written, as a matter of fact, but it was anything but boring. I thought I was going to have to make myself get through it so I could write my review, but it was so good, I had to make myself stop reading it at times. This book gets high marks from me!
I loved Carolyn’s story. I loved the romance and her search for more. If I hadn’t known this was a memoir, I would have thought it was fiction – it really read like a good novel.
I also enjoyed the setting of Oxford. Carolyn Weber really took me there and gave me a close-up tour of the place and traditions and charm of Oxford. I’d love to visit someday to see the places in the book.
I highly recommend Surprised by Oxford. This is one of those books that you wish would never end.
Thank you to the publisher for sending a copy of this book for review.
