I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Library of the Unwritten

Cover of The Library of the Unwritten.

The Library of the Unwritten clearly caters to book readers more than every book does in general: Fantasy where the hero is a supernatural librarian, on a quest to retrieve souls and books? Starring in a conflict between Hell and Heaven? Hell yeah.

Despite the tempting setup, it couldn’t catch my attention at all: It relies on the natural interest of readers towards libraries, then doesn’t back it up. Good-enough characters, not-good-enough dialogue … there’s nothing that stands out as bad, but there’s nothing that stands out at all. I didn’t care about the characters and stopped reading.


Confusingly squishy. That’s humans in a nutshell.
