Review: The Bookman

The Bookman
The Bookman by Lavie Tidhar

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fun, entertaining, and delightfully madcap. A bunch of hanging plot ends that I hope will be tied tighter in the sequel, but for the most part it’s a delightful mashing together of famous and not-so-famous Victorian figures– some historical, some literary– with wild-eyed Vernian and Wellsian narratives, ye grand old space oprey, general pyrotechnic madness.

Just bloody good fun, is what it is.

One thought on “Review: The Bookman

  1. Glad to hear you liked it. I read it a couple of years ago and loved it. I'd have to go back through LJ to find out what I said about it at the time.
