The Library at Mount Char
By Scott Hawkins
Why this book?
The Library at Mount Char is the most imaginative, original work of fiction that I have read—ever. A friend who also read and loved it said, “What the f*ck was up with that book?” I knew exactly what she meant, and she meant it in the best way possible.
Blackly humorous at times, this dark, weird, twisted tale set in modern-day America—and not—revolves around Carolyn. She speaks every language ever known because of Father; all of his children have their own catalogue of study in The Library. As she navigates the intrigues of power and ambition, the cast of characters—a lion named after an atomic bomb, a tutu-clad psychopath who knows all the arts of warfare, a burglar-ing plumber trying to stay on the straight and narrow, a Homeland Security agent, a woman who walks the Forgotten Lands, and the dead ones—you will be sucked into this compulsively readable tale.
Seriously… THE most imaginative and original book I’ve EVER read. If you prefer audiobooks, this one is fantastic!
