I have loved this book. The story swings along with a brilliant naration. The characters have depth and the story is inventive and funny. The only problem is I have started on book two so I will now have to get the first one and book three and start from the begining. There will be no trouble listening to this one again .

I really enjoyed this book but sometimes find that what is said in 1000 words could be said in 100!
Also the way the narrator says 'Alresford' is WRONG. I grew up here and it is one of those funny names where you have silent letters. Sounds petty but for me it ruined the book as cringed every time he said 'Al-res-ford'. It should be said 'Alsford'.
Otherwise I thought it was great :).

I have got to the stage now that what ever book Gerard Doyle chooses to read I am confident that I will love it. This story is Part 2 in an amazing story about the world in the 19th century that is a very different place due to a time traveller from the 22nd century who travelled back in Book 1 to change an historical event for his own selfish reason. The impact of this event was devastating and yet fascinating. Gerard's voice introduces us to so many solid characters that we are easily transported back to that now very strange time.
Would you listen to The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man again? Why?
I will be listening to the story again. It is simply too good not to do just that.
Characters are fantastic, narration is just brilliant.
What other book might you compare The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man to and why?
I have none. This series just stands out on its own.
You are quickly enveloped in this mystirous universe, with all it's weird cotraptions, inventions, characters.
The way Mark Hodder has used real people in a very different environment, and personalities just works wonders.
What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
When I heard book one I was like "Damn, this will not be good". But he is Unique in his narration, and is able to do all the characters without overdoing them.
He brings depth, humour and makes the characters come alive. Especialle Swinburne is eminent.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Absolutely no clue.
