My Thoughts 

I could sum it up in four words (Gorgeous. I loved it.) but I won’t. This one really moved me and will stay with me.  

I loved this one and read it in a single day. I couldn’t stop thinking about it when I wasn’t reading, and have continued thinking of this gorgeous multiple POV story since.

My only issue (which isn’t a real issue) with this was that I wanted more from each story, to learn further about the characters and their futures. 

Finishing this led me to goodreads, which led me to wonder - how have I never heard of this author before?! If you want to find me, I’ll be busy adding more of her books to my tbr list. 

This is definitely going on my most adored books of 2023 list. I loved this novel and fully recommend it. 

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for the DRC!


One book. Nine readers. Ten changed lives. 
New York Times bestselling author Erica Bauermeister’s No Two Persons is “a gloriously original celebration of fiction, and the ways it deepens our lives.”*

That was the beauty of books, wasn’t it? They took you places you didn’t know you needed to go…

Alice has always wanted to be a writer. Her talent is innate, but her stories remain safe and detached, until a devastating event breaks her heart open, and she creates a stunning debut novel. Her words, in turn, find their way to readers, from a teenager hiding her homelessness, to a free diver pushing himself beyond endurance, an artist furious at the world around her, a bookseller in search of love, a widower rent by grief. Each one is drawn into Alice’s novel; each one discovers something different that alters their perspective, and presents new pathways forward for their lives.

Together, their stories reveal how books can affect us in the most beautiful and unexpected of ways—and how we are all more closely connected to one another than we might think.

“With its beautiful parts that add up to a brilliant whole, No Two Persons made my reader’s heart sing.”—*Nina de Gramont, New York Times bestselling author of The Christie Affair
