The way they described Google and working for them was great and interesting, but the conclusion to the mystery left much to be desired. He just happens to have a rich friend who can sponsor all of his quests. Everything works out too smoothly for something that no one else could deduce for centuries. He just happens to solve it in like a month. Also, we get it, you used to play dungeons and dragon's. You don't have to reference it every other chapter.
For some odd reason, it would be near the top because I really enjoyed the characters.
This was completely different read for me and I enjoyed the diversion.
Insert witty remark here...
I have to admit, this book's description led me to think this was a spy genre book. And I have to admit that I was wonderfully surprised that the mysteries of this book far exceeded any expectation I had of that of a plot of a simple spy thriller, as this was not that.
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Book Store was exceptionally charming and had that "can't put it down" wondrous anxiety from cover to cover.
Finally, this book was something most books are not: unequivocally fulfilling. When the end came, it was without question complete in every imagination of the word.
It left me with a smile.
I enjoyed that this story examines how we coexist in a world flooded by both and old technology.
Great story. Listened to it all in one setting. Couldn't stop!
