Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

I read this book for a book club. At first I was not sure what I thought of it. As I continued reading, it pulled me in and I had a hard time putting it down. It is hard to describe what is so likable about the book, I would use the word peculiar to describe it. The book is about Clay. He is a web designer and interested in coding. When he gets a job at Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore everything is not what it seems. To Clay it seems to be more like a library then a bookstore which makes him very curious about the books that are being checked out. When Clay gets the job he is told to never look inside the books. But when he finally looks inside one of the books, what he discovers perplexes him and things start to change. The ending is very good and conclusive even if it is not what you expected. This book has many different aspects put together, such as coding, google and a mystery. If you like coding or a good mystery this book is for you.
