|Ready for adventure, especially of the swash-buckling variety|
My Opinion: It is truly awesome to see librarians portrayed as action heroes, champions of free speech throughout all of time, rather than mousy or stodgy. Apart from just that and the appeal of the action (which is pretty thrilling, by the way), this book is well worth reading for the characters. It is peopled wit ha full cast of complex characters, including secondary and tertiary characters.
