review 1: Best of the three, stylistically. No longer breathlessly telling the reader about clever steampunk set-pieces incidental to the story, he has matured into a more graceful tone and taken on a deeper, more human story (well, mostly human). He leads the reader through it with quite a bit more subtlety, charm and psychological realism. Which is a relief, as I was tempted to give him up after the histrionics of the first volume in the series.
review 2: I just finished this book last night and was all excited to come here and review it today because I enjoyed it so much. Of course, once more I read out of order in a series as this book is number 3 in a series, the titles of the other two being The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack and The Curious Case of the Clock
... morework Man. I thought it was an excellent read despite being confused at the beginning with all of the jumping around in time. I've always been fascinated by alternate forms of history, and this book does a nice job of combining alternate history with time travel. The time periods it focuses on are Victorian England and Africa in the 1863 and Africa in 1914 and a side trip to London in 1840 at the end of the book which was a surprise, but which I won't spoil. I also enjoyed the extensive description of the scenery and the characters and felt like I was actually in the world of the story. I'm looking forward to going back and reading the other two books in the series as well as reading more books going forward from this author. less
