Publisher's Summary

The first installment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents, and forbidden societies - think Doctor Who with librarian spies!
Irene must be at the top of her game, or she'll be off the case - permanently.
Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant, Kai, she's posted to an alternative London. Their mission: to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.
Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos infested, the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own. Soon she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues, and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality itself is at stake.

could not get past the voice

What disappointed you about The Invisible Library?

the narrator had a sing song voice every sentence was red the same..... horrible

What was most disappointing about Genevieve Cogman’s story?

did not hear the story ...had to quit listening in the first chapter

What didn’t you like about Susan Duerden’s performance?

I tried several times to listen...thinking I would get use to this monotone...sing song reading...but could not do it.... sorry I missed the book.....<br/>will not buy any other book read by Susan Duerden.... sorry

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Invisible Library?

didn't finish the book... too bad it sounded like something I would like....

Any additional comments?

isn't there is someone who listens to the narration before it is published?

Distracting Narrator!

What would have made The Invisible Library better?

I couldn't even get into this book because the narrator was so terrible. Her sentences have a sing-song quality that is distracting, and her acting is just awful. It's too bad because it seems like a good book, based on the reviews.

Terrible narration

I really wish I had bought this for my Kindle rather than as an audiobook. Susan Duerden's narration is terrible.
In the past I've generally enjoyed or at least tolerated the quirks of narrators who have come in for criticism, but not in this case. It took me three attempts to finally convince myself that I could cope with listening to Ms Duerden, but her inflection is incredibly irritating and it's only because I wanted to hear the story that I have persisted, I will certainly not buying any more audiobooks with her as the narrator.
