Title: Mr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore
Author: Robin Sloan
My Rating: 4
I didn’t love this book at first, I must admit. For one, I think I’m very much in a space of craving feminine energy (which is no fault of the author, of course) and for another it was a little slow to start for me. I did, however, enjoy it as a whole and I can appreciate that it was well written.
Robin Sloan has a very Lex Grossman feel, but slightly more casual, and wholly less magical. Think Codex but with books and a bit less angst.
It took me way too long to read this book! Back to life etc. Its pretty entertaining. Reminded me of Codex a bit 😊
