Review: The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale


This book came my way via Net Galley, and I’m glad it did.It is a magical, mysterious and complex story centred around a toy shop and its inhabitants.

The story was by turns beautiful and fanciful and then a little dark or sinister.

Even at the end of the book I wasn’t sure which, if any, of the characters I liked as people. I certainly was unsure about the three central characters. But pleasingly, that didn’t distract from my enjoyment of the book or interest in their outcomes!If you’re a fan of magical realism or just an absorbing book, I’d definitely recommend this!
