I just couldn't get into this one. I wanted to like it, but it was too slow-moving and I really didn't like either of the main characters. I kept putting it down until I realized I just didn't want to pick it up again. ( )

YAY! I finally finished this boring book! It only seemed like it took me 18 months, but I see that it was actually only 9 days. I only "read" this while on my 1/2 hour commute via the audiobook, and the last 6 hours I listened to it on 2x speed just to get it over with. To be fair, this book wasn't the worst I've ever read - I've had plenty of books that I couldn't get into or finish - and while this book wasn't necessarily BAD, it was definitely not GOOD. I didn't care about any of the characters, there was nothing actually mysterious about any of the BIG SECRETS (who was Dr. Minnericht?Why was Briar so confident that he wasn't Leviticus Blue?). The setting (both chronologically and geographically) was totally uninteresting to me. Basically, everything about the book save for the narration (Kate Reading and the always-awesome Wil Wheaton) was entirely MEH. MEH MEH MEH.

Zombie steam punk book with dirigibles. All a bit silly but well written, good characters etc. Part of a trilogy. I have not read the others. ( )

A fairly serviceable steampunk with some underdeveloped ideas (much was made of the tinted glass spectacles and they weren't even needed!). ( )

Book #1 from the series: Clockwork Century: Boneshaker

In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice.

Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born. But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.

Now it is 16 years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history. His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

Overall, Priest has created a terrific story that will please endless science fiction fans in search of a thrill.

Priest’s latest, very simply rocks: It’s not only the steampunk adventure you’ve been waiting for, it’s the steampunk adventure you can give to friends of yours who wonder what the hell’s up with all those Victorian overcoats and goggles.

It's full of buckle and has swash to spare, and the characters are likable and the prose is fun. This is a hoot from start to finish, pure mad adventure.

In this age of invention the science of arms has made great progress. In fact, the most remarkable inventions have been made since the prolonged wars of Europe in the early part of the century, and the short Italian campaign of France in 1859 served to illustrate how great a power the engines of destruction can exert.

-- Thomas P. Kettell, History of the Great Rebellion. From its commencement its close, giving an account of its origin, The Secession of the Southern States, and the Formation of the Confederate Government, the concentration of the Military and Financial resources of the federal government, the development of its vast power, the raising, organizing, and equipping of the contending armies and navies; lucid, vivid, and accurate descriptions of battles and bombardments, sieges and surrender of forts, captured batteries, etc., etc.; the immense financial resources and comprehensive measures of the government, the enthusiasm and patriotic contributions of the people, together with sketches of the lives of all the eminent statesmen and military and naval commanders, with a full and complete index.

Unpaved, uneven trails pretended to be roads; they tied the nation's coasts together like laces holding a boot, binding it with crossed strings and crossed fingers.
