The Library Book (book review)

The mystery surrounding the 1986 fire at the Los Angeles Public Library is certainly a conundrum. Fire alarms are common at any library but true fires…not so much. This fire spread far enough to destroy over 400,000 books and damage 700,000 more. Susan Orlean’s book, “The Library Book” explores this mystery as well as the importance of libraries to us. Interesting and unique characters are introduced to us as the author points out evidence as to what happened. The Library Book is an awesome book for anyone who loves nonfiction and a good mystery.
