It is a light easy read, with a great storyline character development, and leaves you wishing you had the next book ready to delve into. The only thing wrong with this author is that she isn't writing fast enough. Come one girl, get out the next book! We are waiting.
The Prequel was also great. There is nothing I have read that quite compares to these books. She has a style of her own!
Good narration. No Favorites
Adventure Among the Tomes!
I have about 300 audible books and this is the first I felt I had to write a review for! I loved this book and hated to have it end.
Yes, it was a great story - one of those where you continue to question if this is really happening somewhere in the world...
Mr. Penumbra for sure
This is a great read/listen that I would definitely suggest for someone looking for a lighthearted story. People who love books, art, typography, secret societies, adventure and/or friendship should find something enjoyable in this work!
When you think you share traits with a protagonist you know a book is doing it's job well.
Doctorow nowness mixed with Young adult fiction make for a strange mix.
You can smell the pure research that has gone into this and despite the cringe worthy fantasy references, the authenticity of ideas and timing of events is fast enough to blur the rough edges.
The narrator is spot on, voicing a middle aged southern woman and young sexy coder with equal ease.
Inside the book store and at Google
It would be fun but I can't imagine it.
A great yarn
The scanning of the codex vitae
He voices nicely
Not that I can think of. I liked it so much tht I sent a copy to my wierd brother-in-law
I would rank this book up at or near the top of my list of favorite audiobooks. It is fun, easy, enjoyable book brought to life with great narration
I'm not going to divulge details of the book, but the dialogue and even the inner-dialog were imaginative and well-narrated.
It was great. It was an animated reading that was as memorable, or almost as memorable, as the Potter series, which is high praise to me.
Hard to say. There were several.
This book defies easy explanation, but I highly recommend that you download it.
Original. I listened waiting to find out what the mystery was. I usually only write a review if a book is a 5 to encourage a listener to order, or a disaster to give a warning. This is interesting a low 4
I am an energetic wife, mother and grandmother with a busy life and tired eyes. I love being able to listen to books while doing chores, etc.
This is a book that keeps you guessing until the end. The narration is just the right speed and with great characterization.
I will definitely look for more books by this author and this narrator.
I wanted to be part of this story with it's quirky characters and oddly charming blend of mysticism and computer technology. It was almost believable but the fantasy of it was charming.
I don't typically do this. However, I would listen again to introduce the story to my family on a road trip. It is a fun story, very engaging.
I like the eccentric characters, the narrator's voice (both the voice of the writer and the performance), and the creativity of the story.
I have not listened to any other performances by Ari Filakos. His performance here is excellent. He sounds like the character - very believable.
All of the characters are memorable. The author is especially talented at describing characters so that you can easily see them in your mind's eye. All a little quirky and eccentric but also rooted in reality.
