Another Juvenile Audio

Here Lies the Librarian

Here Lies the Librarian

By: Richard Peck

Genre: Juvenile fiction

Pages: 160

Published: 2006

Audiobook: 3 CD's (3 hours 41 minutes)

Read: January

2 out of 5

This book was a disappointment - I did not find the characters quirky or the story an offbeat, deliciously wicked comedy as stated in the summary.  I also feel it would not hold the attention of the intended audience; not enough excitement - it's more of a true to life story about a small town in 1914 .  Although I did find the writing in juvenile language and tone, I feel all three of Peck's novels I have read will interest adults who may know some of their own family's stories from that time period more than the younger ages.  It is a good "reflection" story similar to A Long Way From Chicago.
