Thanks for the review. It’s interesting to read what you think of it, because given that your next book is Jacob de Zoet, I think you’re reading tastes are probably a bit like mine.

I want to read some steampunk books and this is one that I have in mind. It’s good to read your opinion. I think if I don’t take it too seriously, I’ll enjoy it, that’s what you’re saying. I hope to get round to it soon.
