    Isaac Vainio is a Libriomancer, a member of the secret organization founded five centuries ago by Johannes Gutenberg. Libriomancers are gifted with the ability to magically reach into books and draw forth objects. When Isaac is attacked by vampires that leaked from the pages of books into our world, he barely manages to escape. To his horror he discovers that vampires have been attacking other magic-users as well, and Gutenberg has been kidnapped.

    Story
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was unfamilar with the pronunciation of many words, which made me cringe. I swear that he said "liberry", which seems ironic somehow. Other missteps: "construct" (pronouncing the noun like the verb), "automaton", "Hermes". Also the quality of the recording was uneven, as though the narrator did many takes in different recording studios. Because of the narration, I could not enjoy the story.
