Synopsis:
Alcatraz Smedry is up against a whole army of Evil Librarians with only his friend Bastille, a few pairs of glasses, and an unlimited supply of exploding teddy bears to help him. This time, even Alcatraz's extraordinary talent for breaking things may not be enough to defeat the army of Evil Librarians and their giant librarian robots.
Reaction:
Sanderson continues to play with form and format in this one. The chapter titles may seem like one-off jokes, but those jokes actually become thematic and carry well throughout. Sanderson's got serious chops. Methinks he's gonna be big some day.
