This was languishing at my work booksharing shelf so I am giving it wider release. I read it for bookclub and it was billed as a literary mystery and it was in part but didn't completely succeed. Fun but not great.

A dense book filled with many facts and red herrings. Enjoyable to read but not a page turner. I hoped the ending would have more resolution.

I picked up this paperback at the Boston BCers Meetup at the Algiers; thanks! I admit that the cover-art and title drew me in; will see if the story lives up to the first impression.

Later: I enjoyed much of the period detail, especially the bits focusing on the libraries (despite all the Bad Things Happening To Books {wry grin}), and the finale was indeed a spectacle, reminiscent of Fall of the House of Usher. I also appreciated the use of palimpsests as key plot elements - that word's always been a favorite of mine...
