    this was fine maybe if i had read it closer to when i read the book itself, i would have appreciated it it s cute, but i hadn t felt any real urgency to gain readerly access to brief origin story episodes in the life of young penumbra, so this didn t answer any big burning questions or make me cry thank goodness i know that now i would gladly read a full length prequel or sequel, and maybe this was just testing the waters putting out e feelers to see if there would be interest in continuation s [...]

    I loved Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore, so when I saw this I just had to have it It tells some of the back story behind Mr Penumbra and how he came to end up in San Francisco The only bad thing about it is that it s far too short I m ready for a full length addition to the story of Mo and his mysterious band of cipher breakers

    I didn t know this was a thing I received a second copy of the wonderful Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore as part if the Nervous Breakdown s Book Club and was a little disappointed until I found this slim little volume included as part of the selection It turns out it was also signed by the author I sat down this morning and read this little prequel in about an hour, and I was immediately drawn back into the world of Penumbra It was a lot of fun and brought to mind how much fun I had reading the [...]

    This is a quick back story to Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore It s a light, fun, and imaginative read I m glad to know about how Ajax came to be Mr Penumbra Of course, I found Cortiva to be just as endearingly irritating as well Once again, like I felt after reading the larger book, I am aching for a visit to the City now San Francisco for those in the know.

    3 starsThis is actually the prequel to Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore However when I read that book I was unaware of this book and that is because this book was not yet written Therefore I did not rush to read this Cute little diddy with a couple nice twists and turns Nice little short story about a college student, Ajax Penumbra, invited to work for Galvanic College s library as an Apprentice Acquisition Officer His first assignment is to find the book Techne Tycheon An invaluable book which h [...]

    I quite enjoyed this rather small introduction to Ajax Penumbra I am still undeniably in love with Robin Sloan s writing style His relationship with words is absolutely magical And the love and appreciation for books it creates such a special, and rather singular, atmosphere I honestly wish there were pagesI think Mr Penumbra deserved time and space Then again, his name is Penumbra

    I read it straight after the book and really enjoyed it It was a bit hard to get into at the beginning but I really liked it and it s definitely a great addition to the story

    This shortstory is a lot nicer to read than the follow up Mr Penumbra s 24 hour book shop I don t think it is amazing, but a fun adventure kind of plausible than the other one and the main character is an interesting, curious and persistent person Robin Sloane should definitely stay within the boundaries of short stories.

    It has been a long time since I read Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore, and I d forgotten how much I love escaping into the world that Robin Sloan has created It made me both want to re read 24hr bookstore and wish that he would write a new book.

    An interesting and quirky little story A nice companion novella to Mr Penumbras 24 Hour Bookstore Its great to see where Mr Penumbra came from and get a bit of insight into his and Corvinas characters A nice read

    Although this mini novel was pretty adventurous and surprising, compared to the first book, it s lacking in some areas but I enjoyed reading it nonetheless It was very interesting to learn deeper about the history of the bookstore book club and to get to know Mr Penumbra and the other characters at a different time period It was a bit difficult to imagine that Mr Penumbra was once a boy and had his own adventures since I ve gotten used to envisioning him as an old man but this prequel made that [...]

    Well that was quick Er staat dat het boek 99 pagina s heeft Maar daarvan zijn 20 pagina s een hoofdstuk uit het volgende boek en een stukje over de auteur Ik vind het en erg leuk en vermakelijk verhaal Gelijk heel mysterieus, maar van mij had het verhaal wat langer mogen zijn Heb het boek in anderhalf uur uitgelezen Maar heb me tijdens die anderhalf uur geen moment verveeld Dus zeker wel vier sterren waard Het eerste boek van de paas read a thon is uit De volgende op het lijstje heeft wat meer p [...]

    If you loved Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore, you ll love this novella Really great This author has a writing style I m very fond of And I m always a fan of books about books.

    Love this book Read it after The Bookstore, so it made sense Felt like I was visiting an old friend And how now I know how Mr Penumbra came about to join the fellowship

    If I had read this prequel right after the novel, my reading experience might have been brilliant Eleven months later, it was just good.

    I liked this short prequel to Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore It was nice finding out Ajax s backstory and some of the history of the bookstore.

    TTake a quick trip back to the San Francisco of 1969 The summer of love has faded, but mystery still hangs in the fog This is an introduction to a strange bookstore, located somewhere between City Lights Books and Chinatown It s filled with streetwise hangers on and a very few true seekers Mr Penumbra, hero of Mr Penumbra s 24 hour bookstore, is introduced here, as well as the arch enemy, Corvina Much as I suspected, I am just a few years under the ages of Penumbra and Corvina I remember walking [...]

    Thank you Picador I won this in the giveaways This was a fun prequel to Sloan s other book, Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore I know when I finished the 24 Hour Bookstore book, I was curious to know about Ajax Penumbra himself In this 1969 book, we are introduced to Penumbra as a college age adult and we get to travel with him to San Francisco where the reader encounters his first visit to the 24 hour bookstore I became entranced with Sloan s description of San Francisco in 1969 I have traveled t [...]

    I loved Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore, so I definitely loved this little companion story, too The only downside is that it s been so long since I read the original story so I couldn t remember the details and the history of the underground organization group in that little bookstore in San Fransisco.Guess I ll just have to reread Mr Penumbra s then read this companion again Oh darn P

    This is a very odd book and takes awhile to get into but it s worth the wait It helps if you have read MR PENUMBRA S 24 HOUR BOOKSTORE also written by Robin Slone It is filled with odd people, mysteries to figure out and very strange ideas and of course books It is the kind of book you can read than once and get meaning each time I love odd books and Odd people so I loved this short e book.

    This was a cool story and it makes me want to know exactly how book and computer programming work separately and together Getting to know a bit about Ajax and Corvina when they were younger was nice, but now I m greedy and I want info on all the character s background, even those just introduced here Not bad, Mr Sloan, bot bad

    Great intro to Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore Bibliophiles will love these Penumbra books They totally get into the head of the bibliophile Great book What people won t go through to get a desired book SeriouslyAjax Penumbra 1969

    Velice p jemn prequel k samotn mu rom nu na kter se brzo tak vrhnu Mile m p ekvapilo, e si m pov dka dok zala udr et od za tku a do konce M lo to hlavu a patu, zaj mav d j, dob e vykreslen postavy Po t to novelce jsem tedy na Nonstop knihkupectv jen a jen zv dav

    Te kort om echt veel van te vinden, maar een leuke afsluiter van het avontuur dat de 24 Hour Bookstore was.
