A modern-day magical mystery for lovers of old books and new technology.

I wasn't convinced I liked this book as I read, until I popped in some ear buds and listened to the magic unfold through the narrator's voice. New technology meets old world literature in a fascinating debate between those who want change and those who think things need to maintain their history. Not only did I care about the characters' journeys, I also thought long and hard about what advancing technology means for the future of literature in our society. Definitely a book to listen to. You'll want to work in an old book shop when you're done!
