Praise

“In A Love of Reading: The Second Collection, literary critic Robert Adams… presents us with 14 book he has fallen in love with, and through a layering of quiet explanation, rapturous literary description, historical reference and some biographical information, persuades us to fall in love with them as well… Adams sways and tempts and seduces until suddenly you not only want to read them, you want to reread them.
–Michelle Berry, Globe and Mail

“Readers who love literature and are passionate about reading will… devour Adams’ sophomore collection of book reviews.… In addition to the sheer joy of reading, which he conveys with such spirited conviction, he’s interested in novels for what they tell us about what we are as human beings struggling to make our way in a complex world.…”
–Robert Reid, Kitchener-Waterloo Record

“Adams is one of our best literary critics. Unpretentious and witty, he is clearly a man who reads both widely and deeply. His reviews are to be savoured. Be warned, however. Once a review is read, you’ll want to re-read the book yourself. If you haven’t already read it, you’ll be off to the nearest bookstore to buy a copy. ”
Edmonton Journal

“Adams’ essays concentrate on modern fiction, and while he covered some of the best in his first set… his new collection proves even more intriguing.… Brisk and sparkling.… Adams approaches each book with the pen-poised alertness that characterized his first collection.”
London Free Press

“Robert Adams is a rare combination: a keen mind with insights that are original, deep, and sometimes startling; and a warm heart whose feelings inform every line. These two qualities work together in his writing and they make for a deeply fulfilling read.… Sit down with this book about books. It will open your heart, wake up your mind and take you into other worlds.”
–Margaret Gear Pilling, Hamilton Spectator
