    Story
    (115)

    For more than two centuries, the land of Albion has been ruled by the supposedly benevolent Watchmaker, who imposes precision on every aspect of life. Young Owen Hardy from the village of Barrel Arbor dreams of seeing the big city and the breathtaking Clockwork Angels that dispense wisdom to the people, maybe even catching a glimpse of the Watchmaker himself. He watches the steamliners drift by, powered by alchemical energy, as they head toward Crown City....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I only recommend this book if you are wanted a deeper look into the story behind the lyrics for the Clockwork Angels project. It is difficult to tell which came first - the lyrics or the story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin J. Anderson? Why or why not?

    NO. I felt like I was being read to by my elementary school teacher. Other reviews of this author have also impacted that decision.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Neil Peart?

    Yep - like his style. Wrong book for him to read, but I bet would be great on an "adult" reading-level performance.


    Could you see Clockwork Angels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Too shallow of a story to hold water. Visually, it could look great, and has potential if modified. I am a huge fan of RUSH, and would go see it no matter how it came out. However, I would hope that this idea is not pursued to avoid tarnishing the band's name or reputation.
