"Never let them catch you reading!" In the year 2098, there is no more war, no more hunger and no more pollution. The world is secure and Earth's 2.9 billion people are healthy and happy. There is also only one remaining library that still houses physical books. In addition to the dusty volumes, the library holds many secrets. But the government has decided to shut it down and burn the contents. Unless an unlikely trio can save the books, humanity will lose more than just what is printed on those antique pages.

With a single government ruling the entire planet, one currency, one language and no religion, the population is unified and enjoying the prosperity that comes with more than seven decades of peace. Free healthcare for all and guaranteed employment make the future a dream. But this future may only be safe if they can hide the past. The books must be saved . . . the impossible task is up to an angry author, a brazen revolutionary and the last librarian. When everything is perfect, the only thing left to fear is the truth.

I have read both of Mr. Legg's previous trilogies and found this first book to be consistent with this writer's fabulous sense of the intrigue. It was difficult to put down and begs for the continued reading of the second book of this thrilling trilogy. Nhb.

I really liked this book. It was far in the future but could still be related to today's world. I can't wait to start The Lost Treerunner!

The book was good. The formatting was a bit distracting.

A plague killed most of the population. No more global warming and wars. Life is peaceful. Corporations control most business. Internet is available for all. Who needs books? Thus begins the premise of this book..soon to be a series if the author continues his plot. Loved the plot development and the characters in the story. A really thoughtful read.

THE LAST LIBRARIAN is not only a futuristic story. It is visionary one, enthrallingly so. Opening at once with a universal calamity and a utopian reversal, it states, “With the population more than halved, it was as if humanity had been given a fresh start. A reset. From the pandemic death and nightmare, a near utopian world emerged.” The author offers a grand vision of a new world order, where there is no more war, no more hunger and no more pollution, and where the government strives to create a disturbingly monolithic society. Throughout the story I found myself oscillating between this nearly cosmic vision, and the perspective of its characters, their attempts to cope with the threat to extinguish the past, to lose all memory of it, by closing down the last library. Runit Happerman, a bookish, cautious single dad, has his doubts about this apparently perfect vision. Wondering why the Aylantik government can’t just leave his library open, he quotes the question, “Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.” The last librarian is at first an unwilling hero. He must overcome his fear and step into his new mission to save the world, and find others who have the same determination as he does, the same fire. Five stars.

I feel really bad about not liking this book that much. It has an interesting plot, if somewhat reminiscent of other dystopian novels. It's got action, intrigue, backstories, and good characters. The story of a future world re-shaped by a plague into a seeming utopia that, in reality, is brutally run by greedy corporate executives should grab me. Maybe the odd spacing of the text in the e-book put me off. Or it could have been that feeling of heavy-handedness with literary references and yep, they're evil corporate execs of course. I'll have to try the second book in the series to see if maybe it's just me.

The Last Librarian: (An AOI Thriller) (The Justar... Brandt Legg An exceptional book. The first thing that pulled me in on this one was the great title entwined with the spectacular cover. Then on, from the first page, the reader is hooked in the well-paced storyline abundant with great imagery and outstanding characters. Lovers of the author's previous works will drawn into this futuristic adventure set in delusional perfection. A superb page-turner.
