eh...

I think it would have been better if the narrorator had a pulse. I struggled to finish listening. the story suffered for the monotone account.

Interesting story

Concept of the Library and the story were interesting. Good twist that I guessed wrong. But the voices all sounded too alike that every character felt the same and the main character appeared so unlikable at times

world building fun, but character development lack

This book was great in the world-building department. Dealing with the actual characters? They felt immature where they refused any sort of character development but i didnt necessarily mind

Great YA read

Fast-paced and engaging characters. Highly recommend for any reader who likes Holly Black's Curse Worker series. Interesting and engaging. A little heavy on the romance, but definitely still worthy of 5 stars. Excellent narration.
