really liked it
bookshelves: steampunk, science-fiction, supernatural, horror, fantasy, historical

See all those genres? Yup, he tackles them all without making apologies or wildly twisting them to make them fit. This novel is an excellent mind-bending trip between past and future, and makes yet another excellent case for why we shouldn't mess with time. For a first novel--or a tenth novel--Hodder's prose is especially rich, and the story maintains its complicated structure without losing the reader. Impressive!
