After a layoff during the Great Recession sidelines his tech career, Clay Jannon takes a job at the titular bookstore in San Francisco, and soon realizes that the establishment is a facade for a strange secret.

    Vindens skugga av Carlos Ruiz Zafón (derelicious, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    derelicious: Both are books about books, with secret societies and mysteries to untangle. The Shadow of the Wind is more gothic and takes place during the Spanish Civil War, and Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is lighter and takes place in modern times.
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Although they have very different settings (1950s Spain in Shadow of the Wind and modern San Francisco in Mr. Penumbra's), these adventure stories, with underpinnings of romance, offer unique perspectives on the role of books and reading in our lives.… (mer)

Mr. Penubra's offers a great juxtaposition of "old knowledge" with ever-changing technology. The story of Clay Jannon (who is a hilariously fun narrator) and the super secret book cult is an amusing, if slightly absurd, tale. The ending was perfect and I really appreciated the epilogue. ( )
  mbellucci | Apr 10, 2021 |
I just couldn't get into this story. It seemed very surface level and I while I could give you a summary of the story, I didn't connect with any of the characters. I can tell that this book won't stick with me in the long run which is extremely unfortunate. ( )
  courty4189 | Mar 24, 2021 |
It fades in and out of black a few to many times to get a five star rating, but this book is; hilarious, fun, touching, and predictable. ( )
  Wanda-Gambling | Feb 18, 2021 |
Charmingly written, but missing a certain spark of life that would really elevate it - it feels like this could have been any one of dozens of other puzzle-hunt mysteries but for the Web 2.0 lacquer applied to everything. ( )
  skolastic | Feb 2, 2021 |
I do really enjoy Robin Sloan's style and voice. Sprinkled throughout the book are moments where the narrator makes a comment that makes him feel more real. It will be funny or insightful and as a reader I feel extra connected to the story in those moments. The story is set in contemporary times and is full of quirky, diverse characters. The adventure and mystery that the protagonist is pursuing is engaging but it's the characters and their interactions that are worth the reading time. ( )

Mr. Penumbra’s 24 hour Bookstore flourishes in the nebulous terrain between super-powered digital information and the text warriors of yore. It rocks in terms of crazy imaginative leaps and is so optimistic about the longevity of books in print that it makes bibliophiles like me positively clap with glee. It does have its share of shortcomings though, but more on that later.

And if, in the end, the plot doesn’t entirely satisfy – the love story is a little weak, the 500-year old mystery rather too neatly solved – this novel’s ideas will linger long in the mind.
tillagd av SimoneA | ändraThe Independent, Marianne Levy (Aug 24, 2013)
 
“Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore” is eminently enjoyable, full of warmth and intelligence. Sloan balances a strong plot with philosophical questions about technology and books and the power both contain. The prose maintains an engaging pace as Clay, Mr. Penumbra and the quirky constellation of people around them try to determine what matters more — the solution to a problem or how that solution is achieved.
tillagd av SimoneA | ändraNew York Times, Roxane Gay (Dec 14, 2012)
 
"In the end, though, the book works fine as an engrossing mystery — and as an intelligent meditation on technology’s trajectory and limits."https://www.librarything.com/work/12661675/book/132262683#
 
I loved diving into the world that Sloan created, both the high-tech fantasyland of Google and the ancient analog society. It’s packed full of geeky allusions and wonderful characters, and is a celebration of books, whether they’re made of dead trees or digits.

Now I've resigned myself to sitting at the front desk, but I can't stop squirming. If fidgets were Wikipedia edits, I would have completely revamped the entry on guilt by now, and translated it into five new languages.
You know, I'm really starting to think the whole world is just a patchwork quilt of crazy little cults, all with their own secret spaces, their own records, their own rules.
He has the strangest expression on his face -- the emotive equivalent of 404 PAGE NOT FOUND.
Now, for the first time in my life, I empathize 100 percent with Fluff McFly. My heart is beating at hamster-speed and I am throwing my eyes around the room, looking for some way out.
There is no immortality that is not built on friendship and work done with care.
