At first I was skeptical. The premise of this book (a scientist and his orphan apprentice hunting monsters in 1888) was a bit hard to take. But, then I got sucked into the story and the writing. The Monstrumologist reminds me of Octavian Nothing. I'm no expert, but every historical detail rang true--the names, the biblical and classical illusions, the vocabulary. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series. I'm glad something like this won a Printz Honor. It's not my usual fare, but it's a good one.
