Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore

by Robin Sloan. Narrated by Ari Fliakos. Macmillan Audio.


Affectionate and playful, Ari Fliakos’ narration is addictive as he expertly voices full-bodied characters, savoring their eccentricities, in this imaginative work of “geek-lit.” His optimistic wonder and understanding of the subtext bring tension to even the minutiae of this grand quest by a motley crew of book lovers hoping to crack the code of immortality.
