>Danger... strong opinion ahead.

To me, your opinion seems mild and mildly expressed. And I agree with it.

I'd like to say more, but unfortunately it's late and I have to wake up
early. A small point, however. You say that in TLS

>J.C. for example notes that writer Nicholas Baker. . . .

I haven't yet seen this TLS. The writer's name is not Nicholas but
Nicholson Baker; using this name and "library" as keywords, you'll find
plenty more of interest on the WWW, particularly via the search engine of
the SF Chronicle/Examiner website,

Hope this is of help.
