4.5 rounded up!
Although the book has quite a bit of characters standing around talking, or telling about events in the past, the sheer wonder and ingenuity of the concepts presented make "The Cartographers" a DEEPLY worthwhile read. I'm personally fascinated by the whole idea of phantom settlements and getting to see them explored in this way, coupled with the love of maps and exploration and discussions about knowledge, made this such a fun story to lose myself in.
I recommend this one to anyone who enjoyed "The Starless Sea" by Erin Morgenstern or "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" by Robin Sloan.… (lisätietoja)

This was really cool! It was a good mystery, and I enjoyed the bits of cartography I learned (the idea of phantom settlements is intriguing).

However, the audiobook was set up strangely (in my opinion). Multiple narrators are listed, but most of the book is read by one woman. The other readers only read when a character gives a long backstory/monologue about themselves. Do not assume (as I did) that this is completely dramatized. No offense to the readers, they all did a good job.

I sort of have conflicting feelings on this book. I think I went into this book expecting a urban fantsay with a dash of mystery thriller. What I got was mystery thriller with some science ficiton elements. So my expections did not meet the book. I really loved the main character in this read and the twists and turns of the story. I also liked how this story was mostly set in the new york public libary. I howevr found the numerous narrarors voices had to idenify who was was. It also alot of story telling and that i struggled with. It was quick read, but at the end minus the main character it was hard to care about anyone!!… (lisätietoja)
