      Reread as of 01 03 2016 Still as good as ever Now, I m ready for the book 2 Dear Invisible Library,Are you guys hiring I saw your book and I was highly interested in the position of a junior librarian If I was correct,and assuming that I am because I m rarely wrong when it comes to my obsessions, your job descriptions are as of follows 1 To be able to retrieve or steal, whatever a certain book assigned to a particular mission.2 To assist The Library at all times.If so, what are the qualification [...]

      Well that was spectacularly boring Which hurts me to my very soul, because books about books bookception should be the best thing ever But like I didn t care about the characters and I found all the info dumps melted my brain and honestly I justdidn t pause to insert image of my stone cold heart right here Honestly my socks are engaging than these characters.Irene was unflappable, which is great in theory, but then you quickly realise this means she has the emotional range of a teaspoon Like, m [...]

      9 30 17 ON SALE for 2.99 amzn 2xJDGRKSo I m only 12% into this thing, but as far as I can tell, it s about librarians SPY librarians Spy librarian THIEVES Spy librarian THIEVES who can travel to PARALLEL DIMENSIONS for the express purpose of stealing books unique to that world.And depending on how much chaos exists in an individual world, DRAGONS might show up to breathe firey order into said chaos I don t actually know yet how the dragons correct the balance, just that they do, but WHO CARES B [...]

      This was absolutely the best fun I ve had with a book in ages Brilliant characters, magical world building and a whole load of adventure.Irene is sent into one alternate London to retrieve a dangerous book shadowed by new assistant Kai, this mission is anything but straightforward and what follows is a rip roaring race to find the book, involving Vampires, Werewolves, Fai and, well, alligators.I absolutely adore the world the author has created here it is a brilliant mix of mundane and magic, th [...]

      I LOVE THIS BOOK It earned its place on my favourites shelf Yes, I am sucker for books about books and or libraries and this novel very much satisfied my every need in this department Throw in a bit of steampunk dragons sprinkle with detective fiction and an alternate world Sherlock Holmes type of character you have me floating on air with happiness.It struck the same chords as The Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde and the magical Library of the Unseen University of the Discworld series by T [...]

    6. Carol. says:

      Titles with library and bookstore are irresistible to readers Add in a cover that looks like faded and cracked leather with gilt lettering and it is like leaving a plate of freshly baked cookies in a work breakroom Sure, you may have started a January diet, but really, just one won t ruin anything, right I m often adverse to YA, but a friend s enthusiastic review thanks, Mikhail had me reconsidering Plus, there s that cover I gave it a shot and am pleased with how it went Like a Pixar comic, the [...]

      3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 06 09 Speaking as someone who loves to read, I just can t help but get these warm fuzzy feelings for books about libraries After all, what could be better for an avid bookworm, than being immersed in a story about a place filled with books, books, and books Well, Genevieve Cogman s The Invisible Library does one even better.Oh, this book has libraries, all right interdimensional libraries, established across multiple worlds, all interconnec [...]

    8. Cait • A Page with a View says:

      Think Doctor Who meets The Infernal Devices that tv show The Librarians There are faeries, dragons, detectives, wizards, creepy skin wearers, and werewolves all thrown together in a sort of steampunk alternate world with zeppelins.So basically the Library exists outside of time space to house unique fiction books from alternate dimensions, which in turn reinforce the library s links to those worlds Scientific discoveries are the same in every world while creative works of fiction can change, so [...]

    9. Aristea says:

      I am really impressed by this book It is a solid 4 stars, impressive in its flow and writing The book view spoiler has an impressive ability to mix so many fantasy themes and make it work It could have gone horribly wrong yet it was the right combination of a lot of different elements, Fae, dragons, magic, Grimm brothers The book also hide spoiler feels like a tribute to two extremely relevant British authors, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle To some extent is a book about investigatio [...]

    10. Lois Bujold says:

      This was fun A librarian secret agent for a library that exists between dimensions and rather outside of time is sent in pursuit of a rare edition of the Grimm tales in an alternate steampunk world hijinks ensue An alternate Sherlock Holmes avatar from the local world and the librarian s apprentice who is than he seems add a lot of interest.While sequels could obviously go to many alternate worlds if the writer gets bored with this one, I gather the immediate sequel returns to this first one.I [...]

      Irene is an agent for The Library, a timeless place balanced among many parallel universes Their goal to collect all the stories ever put into print, everywhere by whatever means it takes When Irene and a handsome young newly minted agent are assigned to seek a collection of Grimm s fairy tales from a steampunk Victorian London replete with vampires, werewolves, and Fae, it seems like a standard run until the Library s arch enemy appears, seeking the same book, and chaos ensues, literally Oh, In [...]

      I am a librarian I am a servant of the Library With great ideas, comes great responsibility Said no comic book character ever, but probably should have Think about it as an avid reader You see a book cover that looks gorgeous, you turn it around and read the summary and it tells you the story of a young woman, working for a secret library that recovers books from alternate realities Add a Doctor Who comparison to the mix and you have one of the most interesting sounding books in a sort of fantas [...]

    13. Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede says:

      THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY is a book that I ve been curious to read for a while now and I was quite happy when I got the chance to read it I mean how can you not, if you are a bookworm, find the description of the book tantalizing A Library that collects fiction from different realities The book is intriguing right from the start as we get to know Irene who is on a mission to retrieve or rather steal a book Finding rare books is what Irene and others that work for the Library do, they blend in and st [...]

    14. Carolyn says:

      This was such a fun start to a new series that I know I am going to love four books so far with the promise of a fifth soon.Irene is an undercover librarian in a secret library that exists between alternate worlds The role of the library is to collect important books from the worlds to compare and protect them Irene is sent into a dangerous world where chaos is unregulated, steampunk rules and the Fae are attempting to take control The owner of the book she is to find a vampire has just been kil [...]

    15. Phrynne says:

      The existence of a secret library set between alternate worlds is a very pleasing idea and it made for some great fun and games This story has a bit of everything magic, dragons, werewolves, vampires, fae and I enjoyed the book and read it pretty fast but felt that it trailed off a bit by the end There were pages of Agatha Christie type denouement and then it just fizzled out Nevertheless I will be back for because I have to find out what happens next to our intrepid librarian and her unlikely [...]

    16. Burn says:

      Interesting worldA bit boring.Complicated and inconsistent setting.Irene, a LibrarianI felt detached while reading this I didn t really care about the characters or the events The writing was bland,there was no excitement It was pretty boring for me.This book just didn t work for me.I like the detective and investigating parts I appreciate the idea of a Library, placed in between alternate worlds, that collects books from those worlds Though alternate world is a pretty common idea, I like the no [...]

    17. Althea Ann says:

      The Invisible Library feels like the author made a conscious effort to Include All The Cool Things Starting with, of course, a secret extra dimensional library with All The Books, connecting parallel universes, and librarians who are secret agents traversing these worlds in search of rare manuscripts I mean, would it be POSSIBLE to write a book with that concept and have it be a bad book I m not sure, but it would be Very, Very, Difficult This is absolutely a very enjoyable book Cool as a librar [...]

    18. Nick says:

      I m really bummed about how this one turned out When I first picked it up it seemed like a book that would be right up my alley I was under the impression that it would be a combination of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell and Death of a Necromancer Add the library aspect and I should have enjoyed this so much than I did As it happens, I did not care for it very much For me, the writing was just so so and I felt that the library served as simply a vehicle where the author could introduce a bunch [...]

    19. Wanda says:

      While not perfect, this book was certainly enjoyable for me It had many of the things that appeal to my reading sensibilities libraries, book collecting, an urban fantasy vibe, espionage, detectives, and it was not overloaded with romance It reminded rather strongly of Lisa Shearin s SPI Files, which in my books is a good thing It was kind of overloaded with concepts, however, which prevents it from reaching the pinnacle of 5 stardom, in my opinion So many different kinds of creatures people jus [...]

    20. Mike says:

      I like books If you are reading this you probably like books too.A lot.You also probably realize that there is not nearly enough time in the world to read all the amazing books out there We have to pick and prioritize what books we spend our precious free time indulging knowing there will always be another series or author we will never actually get to as our TBR shelf grows exponentially Reality can be so aggravating like that.But Irene, the heroine of this story, doesn t have to worry about th [...]

    21. Kate~Bibliophile Book Club says:

      Firstly, big thanks go to the wonderful Gordon at Grab This Book and Tor Books for my copy of The Invisible Library Gordon kindly suggested I should be introduced to this series, and Tor Books agreed so I was thrilled to be sent a copy.The Invisible Library is brilliant It s so far removed from anything I would normally read but I found myself completely and utterly immersed in it from the beginning.An excellent cast of characters, magic, mystery and so much bookish wonderment make The Invisible [...]

    22. Bradley says:

      This is a wild mashup if there ever was one Just the list of elements is freaking weird and the way it s pulled off makes it a really fast read Multidimensional library association, linking texts to fulcrum points across worlds Check.Spies and thieves and detectives, a heist novel focused on a book Check.Dragons and Fae and chaos necromancers and Library Words that function as Words of Power Check.Worlds of magic and worlds of steampunk and worlds of cybernetics and mixtures all in between Check [...]

    23. Rebecca Carter says:

      Irene works for the library, a mysterious society based between alternate worlds She is sent on missions to retrieve books from different worlds for her superiors and faced with a variety of obstacles As the book begins we are thrown in at the deep end of her world, without knowing anything about the library, librarians, the alternates, or the people and beings that occupy these places It s all very mysterious and the reader only starts to discover as the book unfolds, which could be why it too [...]

    24. Alexandra says:

      Public Service Announcement This book is not Steampunk It s Fantasy.Liked it, but am not a fan of the narrator for the audiobook She did ok, and her voice is pleasant enough, but she reads in a breathy style with inflections that seemed wrong sometimes I got used to it though Just an FYI if you re considering the audio version, might check the sample first.

    25. Gergana says:

      Loved the first half, disappointed with the second half.I m so torn apart with this book I absolutely adored the first 50% Not only was I planning on adding The Invisible Library to my list of favorites, but I was also determined to get a hard cover copy from too By the way, this book is absolutely gorgeous So what do we have An immortal female librarian, named Irene, who travels between dimensions and specializes in acquiring books for the Invisible Library Multiple alternative realities that a [...]

    26. Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books) says:

      This review can also be found at Carole s Random LifeI loved this book I have been having a really hard time deciding if this is a a four star book or a five star book for me I would probably actually somewhere in the middle but I hate leaving half stars so I am going with four Either way, it is a very good book and I have to tell you that I am incredibly excited about where this series will end up going Seriously, the possibilities are endless I think I may have accidentally stumbled upon a rea [...]

      Irene is a librarian spy for the Library, an monumental, ancient, and mysterious organization She and her fellows collect important works of fiction from alternate realities for them This time around, Irene and Kai, Irene s newly assigned trainee to mentor, have been assigned to retrieve a dangerous book from a supernatural creature and magic filled steampunk esque world The only problem is that once they get there they discover that it s already been stolen and many people are willing to do wha [...]

    29. Mimi says:

      A combination of The Rook, which I liked a lot, and The Eyre Affair, which I didn t really care for This one falls right in the middle.So what we have here is a secret library hoarding books that has immortal secret agents who are sent out to steal books, multiple alternate worlds and timelines in which these agents enter with the sole purpose of stealing books and bringing them back to the library for safe keeping and language evolution, as we re told Then there s a much sought after alternate [...]

    30. Sherwood Smith says:

      Copy received courtesy of NetGalleyThis discussion is going to be somewhat spoilery Then what is the purpose of the Library Vale asked To save books, Irene said firmly.I have to confess that it s taken me weeks to read this book Though the writing was clever, and the idea a Library that reaches across dimensions, promising zeppelins and dragons and vampires and werewolves, among other magical and steampunkly razzle dazzle seemed designed to appeal to me, I d read a scene or two, lay it aside, an [...]
