Adventure, Victorian snark, a capable investigation - no small achievement for a very drunken bridegroom! - and original use of technology behind the cogsmen ensue. I did miss not having James make as much of an appearance in the short stories, but the scenes he was in entirely made up for that.
I have not yet looked into the 'Gentlewoman's Chronicles', so it could be that I am just missing something that did not come across in this particular book. I also understood Aldora Fiske was meant to be going through emotional changes in this installment, but still, I had issues reconciling with her. She seemed a bit deliberately immature and selfish, and though there were attempts made at growth, I could not fully appreciate them because she appeared to me an inconsistent character to begin with. I also found Regina to be on the petty side, and her motivations were just very... high school. Cannot say I was overly impressed with the female characters here.
And somehow I did not find the prospect of a loveless marriage appealing, though we are shown a tiny grain of affection between Bartleby and Aldora towards the end, so I hold out hope. I did find the overall book excellent though, and will continue to faithfully follow the adventures of Bartleby and James (who I would love to see more of in the next one!)
My technical rating - five stars for the story and three for the female characterizations.
