absolutely loved this book! what a great ready for every type of reader. Its funny and keeps you interested the whole way. simple yet complex in unexpected ways. highly recommended this read
This odd story spins and spins until it offers up amazement and deep satisfaction. A tale of books, the info age, and above all the secret that you need to read to arrive at.
OK I loved this book. If you love books, I'm not sure how you could not love this book. The author's writing style was very engaging and made me LOL more than once. Great characters and an interesting puzzle they're trying to solve...but nothing heavy. It's a fun read. Wish there was more by this author.
Clay's great reveal of the mystery of the code was pretty good, although there were lots of great moments throughout the story where the characters interacting to try to solve the mystery of the code was really great.
OK first of all the narrator was awesome. He did a great job of bringing all the characters and the story to life in a way that was completely engaging. Clay is my favorite...his dialog made me LOL more than once.
This is an adventure but a happy and non stressful one. Made me happy and made me LOL several times.
Wish there was more from this author.
It's not at all the same book as Ready Player One, but it has that same combination of high fantasy, high tech and mystery. I didn't want to stop reading, but I didn't want to finish, either.
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan was a total surprise. I thought that it would be a bookstore fantasy, which it was, but it was also so much more. The old-fashioned bookstore was the center of a twenty-first century adventure, complete with tech-connected, entrepreneurial Millennials and silver-haired, senior readers. I loved the mystery, the bookstore and the eccentric characters, both young and old. Ari Fliakos’ narration was great on the audio version. I was so sorry when the story ended. It made me want to run to the nearest independent bookstore. Definitely a great listen!!
