Half of all income from MAD LIBRARIAN will go to libraries.
Gina Sheridan, Author of I WORK IN A PUBLIC LIBRARY, said, “The hilarious patchwork of characters who run the Maddington Public Library (aka the MAD) take the perennial matter of budget cuts into their own hands. Irreverent and boisterous, this book is for anyone who believes in the power of books and libraries.”
MAD Librarian is a mad but incredibly humorous, enjoyable read! I loved this book so much book lovers; it has been a long time since I have read a satire book but damn did I miss it! MAD Librarian was the perfect read for me to escape into, I was enthralled as well as entertained from beginning to end, and that is all thanks to the excellent plot and writing of this novel. What I have to write quickly is that I think this book would make the perfect unique, quirky movie and I hope one day it is adapted – how brilliant would that be!
MAD Librarian follows the incredible Serenity Hammer. Serenity is a librarian, but she is so much more than this as she is a librarian with a cause, in other words, she is on a mission, and nothing will get in her way! She lived in a quaint town in Maddington, it is her home, and she adores it, especially her precious library! However, her library is under threat thanks to the politicians who want to close it down for good. This is a sad truth which is happening in the world today, but I will discuss this more later! Serenity, however, is strong and powerful, just as powerful as the pushy politicians she has to deal with and so, she conjures up a plan and decides to fight back, and this is the premise of this intriguing, humorous novel.
I adored everything about this wacky novel, it may be a humorous book, but it is so much more than this as it is full of twists and turns galore that will keep you entertained from beginning to end. It is funny and incredibly enjoyable, but it also has some serious moments for those readers who like a novel with some depth. I adored the underlining theme of this story which was, the fact that libraries are being closed all over. It is a sad reality, and I hate it so much, the ones that are still open are being updated to suit the technological age, and that is so sad to me as I am a huge traditionalist. My point is, I adored how the author of this wonderful novel explored this theme and based a whole story around it so well done Michael Guillebeau!
MAD Librarian has a host of eccentric, unique characters, they were certainly ‘out there’ but they were brilliant, and they propelled the story of the book along perfectly. I particularly loved Serenity; I thought she was a brilliant protagonist and unique. Now that I think about it I can’t think of another protagonist to compare her too, so that shows how unique and special she is! As well as the characters being superb, so is the incredible dialogues. The long sentences were wonderful and made me engrossed in the novel. It was like the author’s words were spiked with adrenaline because I found that when I started reading, I could not stop! He is a wonderful, talented author and so I would implore all of you lovely readers to read this book!
To conclude my thoughts on Mad Librarian, I would say if you are looking for a unique, fun, entertaining novel that will keep you hooked from beginning to end then this excellent book is for you! This incredible read gets Five Stars from me!
