Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Infernal Devices (Kindle Edition)
I have read this book many times since it first appeared in the mid 1980s. It's beautifully written and a real page turner. Dower's slightly stuffy and naive first person voice produces remarkable story telling.
If you're into Steampunk (K. W. Jeter invented the term) and Victoriana, just buy it.
(Also, please see my review of Fiendish Schemes, the sequel to Infernal Devices.)
