Staff Review: "The Strange Library" by Haruki Murakami, Ted Goossen


In this fantasy from Japanese author Haruki Murakami, several people are imprisoned in a terrifying library, and must work together to escape. The illustrations and unique design of the book add to the reader's enjoyment, and help readers visualize the library and the characters imprisoned within its walls. It's a quick read, but Murakami still manages to tell a beautiful, albeit strange, story.
