The Library of the Unwritten
by A. J. Hackwith (Ace, 2019); audiobook read by Lisa Flanagan (Penguin, 2019)
Hackwith brings some new, fantastical ideas to the magical libraries subgenre, albeit that several of the key elements seem fashioned purely to suit the plot. The storytelling is steady if fastidiously descriptive. The characterisation gains a lot from Lisa Flanagan’s audiobook reading.
