Larry Beinhart’s The Librarian would make the perfect passive aggressive Christmas gift for conservative family.

Larry Beinhart’s The Librarian would make the perfect passive aggressive Christmas gift for conservative family. The book’s protagonist is a Jewish librarian named David Goldberg, who works at a college library in . After his colleague, a stereotypical shrinking-violet librarian asks him to take over a job archiving papers for an elderly billionaire, his life takes an abrupt turn for the chaotic.

The dedication to librarian Larry Berk, "whom God has mistaken for Job", was intriguing, particularly when Berk appears briefly in the book. I thought the ending was a bit unsatisfactory (it wrapped up too quickly and we didn't hear from candidate Murphy or guru Hagopian in the last third of the book) and it could have used a better proofreading, but this book brought me hours of pleasure. He is the guy who wrote the book that the movie "Wag the Dog" was based on. This is a smart, snarky read.

thorougly enjoyable thriller with an unlikely hero. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 14 years ago. As a librarian and a liberal conspiracy theorist, I found The Librarian gratifying from page one. I stayed up reading until 5 am and then woke up three hours later to finish it. That hasn't happened to me in years.

As a librarian and a liberal conspiracy theorist, I found The Librarian gratifying from page one. I stayed up reading until 5 am and then woke up three hours later to finish it. That hasn't happened to me in years.

David Goldberg is a university librarian working part-time for an elderly conservative billionaire whose co-conspirators are worried that Goldberg will find evidence of their plans to steal the presidential election.

With shifting viewpoints, Beinhart does a great job of capturing the mindset of a librarian, with his literary allusions and idealistic worldview, as well as the many crazies out to get him. There is an Oliver North/Gordon Liddy goon, an amoral Secretary of State reminiscent of Dick Cheney and a Supreme Court justice on the take. On the good guy's side -- quirky librarians out of their element as violent thugs begin to move in. Librarians are, by definition, at least a little idealistic which, in these corrupt times, puts them at a bit of a disadvantage; but they are also bright truth-seeking information technologists, so they're not exactly helpless either, and the confrontations between the two groups are believable in this fictional account.

Beinhart has a disconcerting talent for making sense of present and past political machinations, harkening back to Ronald Reagan, Ken Starr and the 2000 election as well as our current crop of ne'er-do-wells, positing plausible surmises about what their motives and actions are.

I hope this gets made into a movie, as the author's American Hero was. Part of the fun is trying to decide who will play the various parts.

One character I found particularly interesting was Hagopian, the Democratic candidate's political and media guru. I'm not sure who the real-life counterpart would be, but would love to know.

The verbal description of the president is absolutely hysterical and point after point deliciously skewers hypocritical chicken hawks and government employees who bash the government at every turn, including a "pugnacious pest exterminator"! It is wonderfully funny, though the fact that it is largely true also makes it infuriating.

The dedication to librarian Larry Berk, "whom God has mistaken for Job", was intriguing, particularly when Berk appears briefly in the book.

I thought the ending was a bit unsatisfactory (it wrapped up too quickly and we didn't hear from candidate Murphy or guru Hagopian in the last third of the book) and it could have used a better proofreading, but this book brought me hours of pleasure. I had to make a real effort not to read too many passages aloud to my husband so he can enjoy it on his own.

Highly recommended.

...because it has more value, is easier to read then Fire&Fury (read both). “The Librarian” is prescient of today’s political drama, mishaps, & intrigue. It’s the G. Orwell saga for this 2K generation.

I was so impressed by Larry Beinhart's latest book, Salvation Boulevard, that I ordered some of his previous efforts. He is the guy who wrote the book that the movie "Wag the Dog" was based on. This is a smart, snarky read. You may or may not agree with his political take, but he is a witty writer who manages to surprise his readers. Liked this one a lot. When you stop and really think about it, the premise of Wag the Dog isn't quite as far-fetched as I am comfortable with.

Set against the backdrop of a thinly-veiled Bush-like administration engaged in all sorts of taxpayer-funded self-advancement skullduggery, this excellently-written novel takes the protagonists and the reader through a series of white-knuckle scenes. Reminiscent of the DaVinci Code, the book's action is of a similar nature. But the fictional right wing administration of Beinhart's book bears much more resemblance to reality than the allegedly real Priors of Scion in Dan Brown's book.

This story wasn't what I thought it would be. It was great fun and I would read more by Larry Beinhart. This librarian leads an dull life and like it...but learns what excitement can add to life.

I had read The Librarian when it was first published and loved it. Though I lost my first copy via loaning it out, I was continually referring to it over the years. In light of the current political affairs, I decided to read it once again, this time via Kindle. It still proves to be a delightful story, with insights that are as applicable today as when they were written.

This was a great read. Loved the conspiracy side of the story is what brought me to buy the book in the first place, and I wasn't disappointed. Love this book!!

Plods along, haven't finished it yet , I read something else and come back to it. I'll Finnish it someday.
