Summary
'A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through...absolutely enchanting.'--Christina Henry, bestselling author of Alice and Lost Boys
LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER!Finalist for the 2020 Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy Awards
In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.
In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.
Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.
Lush and richly imagined, a tale of impossible journeys, unforgettable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits in Alix E. Harrow's spellbinding debut--step inside and discover its magic.

Wow this narrator was so good with all the different voices and accents. The book was interesting and kept my attention. Not my normal style of book so I enjoyed it for something different. I thought the writing style was very good.

I loved this book! It took me a while to figure out that January’s family’s past is told through the book she finds in the blue chest. She reads it not understanding at first then clues in that this is the story of her father and mother. Their gift of being able to travel through doors into other worlds keeps your head spinning. But finally it all makes sense and wraps up beautifully. I have to admit that I read this book. I didn’t listen to it but I saw it got a mediocre review and I had to defend this extraordinary story. Alex Harrow is a gifted writer. I am eagerly awaiting her next book. The Ten Thousand Doors of January is going on my top shelf of favorite books.

I just couldn't get through this book. I don't think it was the narrator but sometimes an audiobook just doesn't work for me.
