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 skygge af 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.… (mere)

    The Martian af Andy Weir (sturlington)
    sturlington: Mr. Penumbra's reminded me in tone and its reverence for tech, geeks, and pop culture of both The Martian and Ready Player One.

    The Magicians af Lev Grossman (aethercowboy)

Do not miss if you love books, design and/or San Francisco. In fact, if this is you, read it twice. ( )

Good book. Had some endearing moments, but I couldn't help the feeling of too many references/inside jokes/nods to pop-tech culture obscuring a quite simple story. ( )
  ladyars | Dec 31, 2020 |
Confused commercial for google and amazon written as teenage romance. This is going to be completely undecipherable in 20 years but then again I don't think it was written with longevity in mind. At least it's short. ( )
  TeaTimeCoder | Dec 23, 2020 |
Odd book but it came together nicely in the end. This story was like a cross-section of a quirky bookstore, a secret cult obsessed with literacy and Google. I think it tried a little too hard with the pop-culture references and cuteness, but it was still enjoyable. ( )
  JustZelma | Dec 20, 2020 |
Enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book, the idea of books vs digital, what is old vs new knowledge. Liked the idea of a secret society, the special bookstore, the Google workplace, and even the secret society library as well as the accession warehouse. Also enjoyed his roommate with his construction of items. Convenient to have a rich friend although he got strange by end. Girlfriend from Google was likable as a nerd type til the ending when she thinks only about herself. The solution to the mystery seemed to lose me, the peculiar way it was tied together just did not work for me. ( )

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.
tilføjet af SimoneA | RedigerThe 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.
tilføjet af SimoneA | RedigerNew 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#
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerThe Boston Globe, Jesse Singal (Oct 19, 2012)
 
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.
