Haly is a Libyrarian, dedicated to the preservation of the future world s dwindling stock of books, constantly under threat by the Eradicants, who believe that words should be free (cue, horror of horror, book burnings, oh noes!). She also has a secret: the books talk to her. I m glad my books don t talk to me, they would say things like Dust me, please, and Can you stop that damn cat eating our corners? Anyway: decent concept, dull execution; the title ( Libyrinth cos it s a maze, geddit?) is probably the best thing about it. The books Haly hears are a strangely random bunch, too, ranging from the only-too-predictable (no dystopian future would be complete without comparisons with 'Diary of a Young Girl') to the plain old whuh? ('Glenn s Complete Bicycle Manual').
