The Last Librarian – book review

My read of this book started slowly, I could only do it in small doses but the more I read the more it felt as though it had been written about the current COVID-19 pandemic and its results because of the millions dead in the first months of the outbreak and it just seemed to increase by the day. However, once I got into the book and the life that came after the pandemic “the Banoff” it was even scarier, if that is possible than the pandemic itself.

With drones and all manner of AI keeping track of what you do, what you eat, even monitoring your conversations and tax or punish you if you are a few grams overweight! Yikes! The story about the last library in the world and its librarian being under threat was made even worse when the reasoning was that because the books were all available online there was no need for physical books. However, when an author friend of the last librarian tells him that the contents of books were being changed and gave an example of one particular book “The Hunger Games” we all know the movies of that series of three books and the post-Hanoff pandemic authorities had changed it into a book on nutrition!

With several more examples, the author, Nelson and the last librarian, Runit decided they had to work out which books to save but how? A difficult task at the best of times. With time not on their side they had to devise and implement a plan on how to move 900,000 books quickly and at the same time avoid all the AI surveillance.

An exciting thriller I would say that keeps you on the edge of your seat because you wanted the books to be saved and Nelson and Runit and their helpers to survive.

I highly recommend this book which I was honoured to receive gratis and happy to provide this review for Goodreads.♦LR

Book Review – A Collection

Heart of Smoke: The Complete Collection by Megan O’Russell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I would first like to thank the author and publishers for gifting me a copy of the Collection to read and provide a review. I found it difficult reading initially because I found myself uncomfortable with some of the content a little way into the first book. Having taken a break for a day or so, I picked up where I left off and I then, of course, could not put the books down until I had finished the Collection. I say books because having the Collection you simply go from Book 1 straight to Book 2 and so on.

It doesn’t take much to imagine the conditions of a city left to rot and die with no clean water and contaminated food sources, and its inhabitants a mix of the worst of humankind all fighting to survive at the expense of others and vampires lurking in shadows making the streets danger zones, the sun when it is clear of ash from the fires is so hot it would burn through anything that has not been “sun-proofed”.

In all this Lanni and her sister try to survive, Lanni working in a factory (for an honest but meagre living), stealing and selling goods to unscrupulous traders and just managing to stay out of trouble and her young sister together with other children works in another part of the factory where schooling is given on overhead screens while the children work.

The description of the city and the conditions is graphic and at times explicit enough to not leave too much to your imagination.

When Lanni is kidnapped and finally meets her sister at the “meeting place” the girls are told that arrangements had been made for them to be taken to one of the Domes to begin a new and safe life. When that new life is also threatened Lanni fears for her sister’s future and takes matters into her own hands with the aid of some similar-minded friends.

The Collection makes for compelling reading despite my initial reaction to the content which was of course relevant to the condition of the city’s identity. I found the Collection well researched and the books flowed well together with each following on from the one before.

Highly recommend the Collection as it is better read in order even if purchased separately.

Thank you again for the opportunity to read this Collection and provide a review.

Thank you for visiting and reading. If you enjoyed this review please leave your comments below.
