Great story that held me.
This book would rate very highly in my list and I would recomend as a good read.
World wide twists and turns
The plot is interesting and very well planned. The quest the lead character is lead on is difficult and long. The female lead was a breath of fresh air and while she seems to be an everyday neighbour type, the longer the book goes the more intelligent and remarkable she becomes. That said, I do not understand Emily being chosen as the new Keeper as she has no loyalty or affection with the Library. She gladly tells all what she knows as opposed to Arno, Athanasius or the other members of the society. It is this lack of respect or loyalty to the Library that make Emily a strange choice.
