"Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a rare book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues--a bee, a key, and a sword--that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to a subterranean library, hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians--it is a place of lost cities and seas of honey, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a beautiful barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly-soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose--in both the rare book and in his own life"--… (més)

DNF after 200 pages, no motivation to go on reading. The world seems wonderful, there are some wonderful phrases and ideas, but the book is chaotic and seems to have no plot. I have no connection to the characters, so of the three (world building, plot and characters) I only like the world building, which seems to be not enough for me to like and enjoy a book. ( )

This book does not really have a firm plot, but to be honest that is what I like about it. This is not a book- it is a world you get to live in while reading, an underground library with stories come to life and friends to help you along the way, and that, to me, is what reading is all about Charlie Brown ( )

Absolutely breathtaking! I will reread this story for many years to come. ( )

What I like about this book is that it exaggerates an experience I almost always have of whatever book I am reading or listening to, being mirrored in my own personal experience, or just as frequently, the other way around—I will experience something first and then it appears in the next chapter of the book I’m currently reading, or there will be matching themes, or characters, or concepts in two books I’m reading simultaneously that are otherwise completely different in genre, author, etc., or an audio book I’ve had on hold for weeks will become available, and turn out to be narrated by the same performer the book I just finished was narrated by. Case in point: I’d been listening to Julie Berry’s “The Lovely War” and had been waiting for my hold of this book. There are THREE common narrators in both. That there are multiple narrators in both is coincidence enough, as most of the books I listen to have a single narrator. And, to further this little story of coincidences, the next book I listened to also shared a narrator from this book, Fiona Hardingham. Again—different author, different genre, and nothing I’d planned. I do sometimes follow narrators, but until The Lovely War, I’d never heard of Fiona before.
But enough about me—this is quite a masterpiece of beautifully elaborate imagery threading through interweaving stories—so much so that I think some metaphors and such were lost on me. I recognized some Alice in Wonderland allusions, I think. It’s rather long, and I did get lost a few times. I may listen to it again sometime. I’d love to know if the symbols were intended to have a deeper (broader?) meaning than I comprehended.
I’ll probably be reading reviews for insights I’m sure are to be had.
