Izdavač: Školska knjiga , biblioteka LUMEN

Rekla bih da je ova priča zapravo razgovor Steve Jobsa i Umberta Eca.

Kad pročitate bit će vam jasnije! Uvijek me posebno privuku knjige koje već u svom naslovu imaju riječi poput knjižara, knjižnica, knjiga. Iako mi se ova na prvu činila kao knjiga za mlade (ili tzv. dječja) kada sam je na brzinu prolistala zaključila sam da me zanima i da je to itekako “bajka” za odrasle koju treba pročitati. Instinkt me nije prevario.

“Tajnovita knjižara gospodina Penumbre” uzbudljiv je  književni  misterij ali i  inspirativna i filozofska knjiga puna jedinstvenih likova s vizionarskim idejama. Zato je i postala svjetski bestseler.

Mladi Clay Jannon izgubi posao kao web dizajner (sve to jako podsjeća na situaciju u Hrvatskoj), i nakon bezuspješne potrage za poslom u svom fahu slučajno nailazi na neobičan oglas za posao koji ga vodi do gospodina Penumbre, tajnovitog knjižara koji vodi staru, prašnjavu  knjižaru punu visokih polica, u San Franciscu. Knjižara je otvorena tijekom cijelog dana i noći. Clay preuzima noćnu smjenu i vješto se vere po ljestvama do najskrivenijih polica s neobičnim naslovima, šiframa i koricama. Vrlo brzo shvaća da nešto nije u redu:  Kupci ne kupuju ništa,  samo posuđuju nekakve opskurne knjige iz najskrivenijih polica koje ne uključuju tekstove, već beskonačne redove slova i sve to u tajnom dogovoru s Penumbrom. Knjižara je evidentno paravan za nešto puno veće i kompleksnije. Postupno, Clay saznaje da su gospodin Penumbra i njegovi  klijenti na tragu drevne tajne koja se proteže daleko izvan zidova knjižare u kojoj on radi samo noćnu smjenu.  Uz podršku svojih  pametnih prijatelja  (Mata i Neela),  djevojke  Kat i mudrosti gospodina Penumbra,  Clay  se trudi otkriti tajnu koja seže do ranih dana tiskanja. Sve se pretvara u literarnu pustolovinu.

Clay je simpatičan mladić od prvog retka knjige. Ne bježi od promjena, prilagodbe i brzo se uklapa u nove izazove i tehnologiju. Zato i ide naprijed.

Njegova djevojka Kat Potente je također vrlo obrazovana i promoćurna. Rođena i odrasla u Palo Alto (gdje je živio i radio Steve Jobs), studirala na prestižnom fakultetu i zaposlena u Google-u gdje uživa u svom poslu koji se sastoji i  od skeniranja važnih dokumenata, knjiga i svih mogućih svjetskih podataka koji se polako, ali sigurno spremaju u Google arhive i postaju dostupne svima.  Mogla bi se povući poveznica između Kat Potente i Lisbeth Salander – sličnih su umnih sposobnosti, vješte u IT sektoru, poštene i traže pravdu. Ništa im ne može promaknuti u pronalaženju dobrih rješenja.

Clayov najstariji prijatelj, Neel, također je svojevrsni “wunderkind” koji je, još kao student druge godine Berkeleya, licencirao korejskoj tvrtki revolucionarni softver za simulaciju sisa i time postao vodeći stručnjak za fiziku sisa i vlasnik tvrtke Anatomix – oruđe za simulaciju i prikazivanje grudi u digitalnim medijima.

Za Neela radi programerski wunderkind Igor kojeg je Neel  prepoznao na You Tubeu, dovukao iz Bjelorusije gdje je sam naučio linearnu algebru na lopati, vladao hakerskom scenom Minska kao šesnaestogodišnjak. Neel mu je sredio vizu, kupio avionsku kartu i ponudio jako dobar posao.

Na mnogo mjesta u knjizi se spominje tvrtka Google i Apple. Kat često vodi Claya  kod sebe na posao u Google  i na taj način i nas čitatelje upoznaje s tim “naprednim, savršenim svijetom i radnim prostorom za mlade genijalce”.

Clay i Kat chataju preko facea, twittera, naravno preko I-phonea.

Clay koristi Wikipediju, čita blogove i neprestano skenira neke knjige i tekstove. Koriste najmoderniju tehnologiju. Sloan to odlično veže uz stare knjige i time čitatelj odmah bude potaknut na razmišljanje kojom brzinom se ovaj svijet mijenja i kuda ide s naprednom tehnologijom. Stalno nas podsjeća da živimo u ovom vremenu i da ga trebamo prihvatiti.

Sviđa mi se način na koji je Robin Sloan u knjizi spojio taj svijet starih knjiga, starih rukopisa, mistike i neotkrivenog s novim svijetom digitalizaicje, e-knjiga, 3D printanja i novih tehnologija .

“Tajnovita knjižara gospodina Penumbre” zato i jest izrazito ugodan roman, pun topline i inteligencije.

Sloan uravnotežuje jedno čvrsto gledište  s filozofskim pitanjima o tehnologiji i knjigama i snazi koju oni sadržavaju. Čitava priča održava se zanimljivim tempom kad Clay i  gospodin Penumbra s osobama koje su uz njih uvučene u priču, zanimljivom igrom riječima i konstelacijom ljudi oko njih pokušavaju utvrditi što je važnije – rješenje za problem ili kako se to rješenje može postići.

U originalu knjiga se zove “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore” pa je malo jasnije kako je knjižara otvorena non stop. Slone je dobitnik nagrade Alex Award,  finalist Los Angeles Times Book Prize za prvi roman tzv. First Fiction, a knjiga je dobila i naslov Knjige godine od NPR, Los Angeles Timesa i San Francisco Chroniclea.
