Let me put this title in to perspective. Is it going to be a life changing book? No. Are you going to feel resonances of this book days after finishing it? Not very likely. Is it the kind of book that keeps me flipping those pages over as it is gripping? More than likely, yes!
Library of the Dead is what I would class as candy floss for the brain. Quality candy floss though... It is an exciting read to begin with, although the story does seem to loose its way a little during the middle, but then appears to get back on track for the finale.
This title is the sort of book perfect for the beach (I hazard a guess that is why it is being released in time for the summer market). You will not go far wrong with this book whilst cooking under the Mediterranean sun, for example. You will enjoy it and pass it on to the next person. You may not even remember the plot very well but you will know that you enjoyed it. So, please go ahead and read this strange, yet intriguing book.
