** spoiler alert ** I've been meaning to read this for awhile, and I finally worked it into my audio book rotation, although at 6 discs it was almost too long for my relatively short commute.
This has an intriguing premise, eccentric characters, and my favorite a Victorian England setting. It's not a title I would have stuck with had I been reading the print version, but as an audio book I enjoyed it enough to keep going. I was interested in how things would be resolved mostly because I enjoyed the characters who were voiced nicely with different accents.
The ending was a bit much for me, once the Jeremiah storyline was resolved the story began to drag. I also find it hard to believe that there is only one secret pawnbroker, it just doesn't seem like he would be able to help that many people! Sometimes the switching from first to third person was confusing, but I chalk that up to the fact that I wasn't always paying attention.
