Narrator Stephanie Racine instills an enthusiastic tone of wonder at the transformative quality of books in this tale with a beautiful dreamlike quality. Juliette loves creating stories about the strangers who read on the Paris metro. A deviation from her normal route leads her to a bookstore, and to owner Soliman and his precocious daughter. Juliette falls into the role of a passeur, Soliman's name for the booksellers he hires to match books to new owners. Julia's melancholy is initially replaced by tears and wails of frustration at the enormity of the task. At first, Racine gives her a timid, questioning lilt, but soon Juliette finds comfort in her charming clients and their jovial, knowing voices.
