  • review: A story about people who eat books for sustenance and absorb its knowledge? An alluring and attractive premise! I saw this book first while perusing a local bookstore, and it stuck in my mind despite signs of it not being a decent read. Later, when I came across it again - I decided to buy it. The start was good - there is some world building, some science, a lot of book eating goodness. But it fell apart quite quickly. The writing is weak, the characters were not really interestsing, and most importantly the book eating doesn't really go anywhere.,
