The Woman in the Library had a lot of different things happening in one fairly short book. For the most part, I found the layers of mysteries entertaining though I was disappointed with how brief the whodunit wrap-up at the end was. My biggest complaint was the lack of character development. All of the main characters felt a bit flat and didn't do much to keep me invested in the story.

This was one of the more creative murder mysteries I've read this year! I thought the plot-within-a-plot device was used in a really clever way, and allowed space to explore some interesting topics about the genre itself.

It was ok. I didn’t care about anyone enough to care when something bad happened to them. It was very slow. I was expecting a murder mystery and it wasn’t that until the last 30 pages. The subplot was the most interesting thing about the book and the fact the even in the world of the book, the mystery is fiction made me care less. Just wasn’t for me.
