I'm usually not big on urban fantasy and though Libriomancer definitely includes some genre tropes (including a poorly developed romance), the idea at its core is so fun that it kept my interest. I also really enjoyed the humor. It isn't laugh-out-loud funny or anything, but there are a few wryly amusing moments, particularly the phony scientific names for all the different types of vampires as inspired by different books (stephanies meyerii,etc.)
No. To be honest, this book features possibly the worst narration of any I have encountered. In addition to totally indistringuishable character voices and no differences in inflection to clue you in when something is a thought rather than spoken dialogue, he also pronounces words strangely throughout (CON-flicted instead of con-FLICT-ed, etc.). At one point he even says "liberry."
Very distracting, and if I read the sequel, it will be in print.
If you can get over the poor narration, this is a fun book.
