Unbound: A Booklover's Mystery

England's prestigious Plumtree Press is about to release a shocking book that exposes coded messages in a famous novel - codes alleged to be printer's errors. The messages are so treacherous, that if discovered at the original time of publication, the author would have been hung for treason. Now, with someone ruthlessly trying to keep this revealing exposé out of stores, Alex Plumtree must protect his star author and family's legacy before the phrase "publish or perish" becomes all too real!

    Tell us about yourself! Attorney/Rancher - eclectic taste in books in both fiction and non-fiction. Preference for British authors in mysteries, love well written dialogue and hate historical fiction.

    Story
    "Protagonist should be a Darwin award winner."

    The publisher, who is the protagonist, in this story, would have been the end of the mammalian species had he lived in the Jurassic. One wonders why the author did not get tired of him early on and just killed him off, since he apparently has no self-awareness, or a sense of self-preservation. He talks on and off, during the the novel, about having children in the future - one hopes that doesn't happen, because he probably would leave them at the zoo in the polar bear enclosure. And, who is so hot for a girlfriend that he is constantly thinking about her, but communicates only through faxes? This guy is so strange that obvious attempts to kill him are not communicated to the police, because he natters on constantly as to whether he has enough proof to make them believe him - I would have loved to kill him off for his author.

    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    Story
    "Not exactly bad; Just not good, either"

    Alex Plumtree is being warned that his publishing house should not print a book about an author named Stonecypher which will reveal printer's errors that, if read in a certain way, would show the author had deliberately woven in (at the time of the great Bloomsbury group) politically treasonous messages. He is also concerned about his brother, who apparently in a former book betrayed him, and a sort of unavailable woman whom he loves. Though evidently a man smart enough to run a publishing house, he can't seem to avoid mis-interpreting or ignoring every dangerous hint/action coming his way. That becomes exasperating after a while.

    I did intend to listen to it all, but confess I gave up about two thirds of the way through. Had to keep yanking my attention back to the story time and again. What did hold my attention was the information about publishing. Finally learned the origin of the "dingbats" found in our current computer font lists. But when the trivia is more interesting than the story, I think it's just time to cut my losses. Not a really bad book, but I would not put it high on my recommended book list. Tried to decide about the narrator. Was the perfect voice for a book destined to put me to sleep anyway. He was neither bad nor good. That, to me, pretty much sums up how I felt about his book. Might be someone else's cup of tea. Was not mine.

    Story
    "How about a more reasonable story?"

    Overwrought. Unbelievable situations. End result is exhaustingly silly. But still very good characters and characterizations.Try again, Ms. Kaewert. I'm still your fan.
