    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Susan says: "Fun, thought-provoking, mysterious.... and FUN !"
    "Every book-lovers dream adventure!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very much so! Because the best books not only let our imagination fly and join the fun, but they give us gentle truths to take away when they are finished. This book does that in several chapters, and, of course, in the end. What a great mystery!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I stayed up waaaay too late listening. It was well worth the sleep loss. And I'm not telling "how"....you'll have to find out yourself!


    What about Ari Fliakos’s performance did you like?

    He captured just the right tone...a balance of of youth, skepticism, and belief. I can't imagine any Shakespearian actor doing it better.


    Who was the most memorable character of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore and why?

    Mr. P. himself. Oh, that we could all meet someone like this once in our lives!


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to the author's next book!
