    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The violent degrading sex completely overshadowed the storyline.


    Has Ice Blue turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What does Gabra Zackman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Toru Okada is going through a difficult time. He is without a job, his cat has disappeared, and his wife is behaving strangely. Into this unbalanced world comes a variety of curious characters, a young girl sunbathing in a nearby garden; sisters who are very peculiar indeed; an old war veteran with a violent, disturbing story. Okada retreats to a deep well in a nearby house. And the story unfolds.

    Shelley says: "Bizarre"
    "graphic sex"

    (678)

    Evil is most assuredly afoot - and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade... and a librarian. These are dark days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing, then reappearing, washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone. Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences - the Crown’s clandestine organization whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling - will not allow its agents to investigate. Fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with her disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let the matter rest...

    Suzanna says: "Great Steampunk - worth a listen"
    "It needs more story and less sexual reference"

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

    No. It is more a book about sex than a book of science fiction. There is a good story in there it just gets lost in sex and debauchery.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Thereby Hangs a Tail


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    James Langton's performance is excellent.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not
