“And at that moment the alligators burst into the room.” That’s my favorite line from Genevieve Cogman’s Young Adult novel about a librarian whose job takes her into alternate dimensions to rescue rare books (like plays Shakespeare wrote that don’t exist in our dimension). The alternate worlds hold dangers and mysteries of their own. The world in The Invisible Library has aspects of steampunk technology (zeppelins, giant robotic spiders) and aspects of Magic. If you’re looking for a fast-paced adventure novel with some clever twists and turns, I recommend The Invisible Library. GRADE: B

    I wonder if Kevin would like it. Lately he is mostly reading comic books. Would like to move him back to books.

      Bill, I know Raymond Chandler said that you can rev things up in a story by having a guy enter the room with a gun, but I’m with you on the alligators!

    I’ve seen the title but didn’t know what it was before. I put it on hold.

    There is already a sequel, by the way, THE MASKED CITY.
