it was amazing

Read in December, 2007

A wonderful story, very creative and strangely informative (at least about some obscure aspects of Victorian culture). Time traveller Ned tells his story in an engaging and humorous way. There's a dog (Cyril) and a cat who doesn't drown, characters with strange names (I've never met, or heard of, a Tocelyn, and Mrs. Schrapnell is a most evocative and appropriate name), and love conquers all in the end through the steadfast applicaton of British mystery novel techniques.
