Editorial Reviews

Three kids - a street musician, a clockmaker, and a maid - learn they may hold the solutions to each other's problems. Meanwhile, danger lurks just around the corner! Marc Thompson handles this steam-punk adventure with verve. His pacing is slow and clear, for those little ears. He maintains a serious, thoughtful tone; after all, these kids' 19th-century America is no laughing matter. Most importantly, Thompson gives the three main characters their own distinct voices. No wonder Publishers Weekly gave The Clockwork Three a starred review.

Publisher's Summary

A team of unlikely friends - an orphaned street musician, a hard-working girl from the tenements, and a talented clockmaker's apprentice - discover that together they can overcome even the darkest of fears.

Where does The Clockwork Three rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is by far the best audio book I've heard.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Clockwork Three?

The entire story is wonderful - each part melts into the next so you can't stop listening -- you want to hear more & more!

What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

He was wonderful - very very good on each person in the book - amazing!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The adventure of all adventures!!

Any additional comments?

Thanks so much I can't tell you how happy I was with this audio book & my granddaughter's 5th grade teacher was reading this book to the class & I wanted to read it also - but instead I thought it would be wonderful to hear it instead -- boy was I right!!

HASTY CLIMBERS SUFFER SUDDEN FALLS

AS SURE AS FLIES ON A DEAD DOG
I was hoping for something more steampunk, more cogs and wheels, but that was a very small part of the book. I could not get into the story or the characters. The narrator was okay, but even better at 1.25 speed. This is not a bad book, just not anything special.

This Book is Amazing

I've been wanting to read this book for so long and I even bought the hardcover. But I never had time to read it because my commute to work every morning is about an hour. Having the audiobook made reading this book a whole new experience. Especially with the narrator making the different voices. Overall I love this book and audiobook.
