Summary

Arno Holmstrand’s life is cut short by an organisation intent on laying claim to the secrets he has spent a lifetime guarding: the location of the lost Library of Alexandria. One minute Emily Wess is is a professor of history, the next she is journeying to the far corners of the world, deciphering clues left by her mentor, Arno Holmstrand.

A story with such potential but didn't fulfill

The idea was brilliant but it failed to have any depth. Such a shame as I kept hoping it pick up.

Great story that held me.

Where does The Lost Library rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

World wide twists and turns

Any additional comments?

The plot is interesting and very well planned. The quest the lead character is lead on is difficult and long. The female lead was a breath of fresh air and while she seems to be an everyday neighbour type, the longer the book goes the more intelligent and remarkable she becomes. That said, I do not understand Emily being chosen as the new Keeper as she has no loyalty or affection with the Library. She gladly tells all what she knows as opposed to Arno, Athanasius or the other members of the society. It is this lack of respect or loyalty to the Library that make Emily a strange choice.
