Imagine an even more f*cked up version of umbrella academy and multiply that by a trillion.

This book has ALL the trigger warnings. But the story is so insane it’s mind blowing.

You have a bunch of kidnapped children turned into godly librarians under the control of a terrifying Father. Until one day, one child gets their revenge.

I need to read a kids magazine about kittens to bleach my brain after this.

Read to page 206 before stopping. Just could not get interested no matter how much I tried.... ( )

This book was so good, I'm not sure what to say. It was unlike most of the fantasy that I've been reading lately, other than being dark.

I guess I'll just have to recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy. ( )

I'm not entirely sure how to describe this book. It is truly an original work of art. It contained fascinating, multi-dimensional characters who constantly surprised me. It was well paced, and hard to put down. The story itself was both horrific and wonderful at the same time. I look forward to reading more from this author! ( )

"The Library on Mount Char" by Scott Hawkins is a literary rollercoaster that defies conventional storytelling. From the first page, Hawkins immerses readers in a world that's both bizarre and captivating. The narrative weaves through a labyrinth of twists and turns, leaving you constantly on the edge of your seat, unsure of what will happen next. The characters, each with their unique quirks and mysteries, add layers to the story, making it a truly unforgettable experience.

What makes this book stand out is Hawkins' ability to blend fantasy, horror, and humor seamlessly. The unconventional nature of the plot might make you question how it all fits together, but somehow, it does, creating a narrative tapestry that's both intricate and satisfying. The author's imaginative prowess is on full display, turning what could have been a chaotic mess into a brilliantly orchestrated symphony of weirdness.

"The Library on Mount Char" is not a book that fits neatly into a specific genre—it's a genre of its own. Hawkins has crafted a tale that challenges expectations, and while it might not be for everyone, those who appreciate a wild and unpredictable journey will find themselves thoroughly engrossed in this peculiar and enthralling literary adventure.
