    Story

    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....

    Amazon Customer says: "Great with the album, decent YA novel alone"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The lyrical references were fun but I feel like there were too many. If I was reading a dead-tree edition of this book, I might have thrown it out the window!


    If you’ve listened to books by Kevin J. Anderson before, how does this one compare?

    I read one of his X-files books back in the day and I remember liking it. But I was much younger and less of a cynic so it's hard to compare.


    Have you listened to any of Neil Peart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no but I would like to get one of his own travel books to hear him read it.


    Was Clockwork Angels worth the listening time?

    Yes I think so. I feel it added to the album.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really intrigued by the parallel universe/multiple world stuff. I wish there could have been more of that. It's sad that Lavinia got totally left in the dust.
