I loved being able to revisit the bookstore and enjoyed the backstory very much! The performance by Fliakos is perfect. His style is just right and listening to him made the story really come to life. I think listening to this audiobook AFTER listening to Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore was important for me, but not necessarily a MUST for all. Just be sure to enjoy to enjoy BOTH of these wonderful books. Makes you feel like you've found a hidden gem and wonder why everyone you know isn't talking about Mr. Penumbra's bookstore.
Great story...intriguing from the very beginning. The narration by Fliakos is terrific! I can not imagine anyone doing it better! His tone, inflections, accents for different characters, and overall approach to reading this book is perfect. I love the story and found myself smiling many times while listening, as I "met" new characters and enjoyed the references to Google, code, and of course, books. I am on my second listen....and I very rarely listen to the same book twice. I must say I am enjoying it just as much the second time around. I have recommended this book to many people. It is special.
