I was going to hold off writing a review of Alice Hoffman’s The Museum of Extraordinary Thingswhich was published by Scribners on February 25,  2014.   However,    it is appearing on all sort of hot book lists for 2014 and has gotten mostly favorable reviews by readers(male and female) who were able to get an advanced review copy of the book.   In contrast, I thought the book was just ok(two out of five stars).
