I enjoy a good story that doesn't take itself seriously. There are so many books out there with so much heavy drama, and doom & gloom. Well, actually Mothstorm like the first two books in the series by Philip Reeve, Starcross and Larklight, has plenty of drama too: with the planning of a Daring Rescue, various space battles from one end of the solar system to the other, encounters with all the strange aliens and creatures like the mermaids from Uranus , I mean Georgium Sidus, the pudding worms and sun dogs, and, don't forget the very dangerous gigantic moths. There is the usual romantic entaglments of Myrtle and Jack Havock. Art's footnotes are unreasonable amusing. It's delightful. It's not everyday I get to read a victorian space adventure.
