This was a fine book. A very interesting premise, and it was fun to see Victorian England from a different perspective. The characters didn't quite jump out to me; I felt they were a little two-dimensional--maybe caricatured is a better word.

Also, I'm going to have to go back and reread Artemis Fowl, because I don't remember if it had such jarring POV shifts. I won't call them problems, because I'm certain Colfer was going for a 3rd person omniscient in this book. I'm just not a huge fan of 3rd person omniscient. It took me a while to realize he wasn't just headhopping.

But it was a fun book, and interesting enough that I've requested the sequels from the library. Even if they all end up being at the same level as this book, I won't consider it wasted time.
