The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack
The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack | Mark Hodder
13 posts | 13 read | 6 to read
London, 1861. Sir Richard Francis Burton - explorer, linguist, scholar, and swordsman; his reputation tarnished; his career in tatters; his former partner missing and probably dead. Algernon Charles Swinburne - unsuccessful poet and follower of de Sade, for whom pain is pleasure, and brandy is ruin! Their investigations lead them to one of the defining events of the age, and the terrifying possibility that the world they inhabit shouldn't exist at all!

Mehso-so

It was a good read, but the last part seemed a bit rushed. I feel like there could be more to this story.

Decided to finally continue reading a book I'd put down months ago and found this Valentine's card I'd been using as a bookmark 😊❤
Anyone else like to use cards as bookmarks?

For all that I read over 17h this weekend, I only finished one graphic novel and a book with only 2 Ch. left. This because I read ALL THE BOOKS, and one of them is 1k pages long. 😂 So let's start another one, why don't I? 🙄 This one is short. Short stories even. And essays. And not in Litsy database, so I tagged the first book in the series.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I liked The Strange Affair of Spring-Heeled Jack but never kept going with the series. One day, I suppose... 11mo
Leniverse @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I‘ve only read the first one too, but this companion volume is available on Kindle Unlimited where I currently have a 3-month trial. It‘s a companion to the first two books, so I guess I should have read book 2 first, but it doesn‘t seem too heavy on the spoilers. 11mo

This alternate history steampunk series chronicles the adventures of real-life explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton and his buddy, real-life poet and sado-masochist Algernon Swinburne. The bad guys find this out when they capture and torture Swinburne and he has the time of his life. #booklove17 #SandM

Leniverse 😮 I must have this! 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Leniverse I haven't read the rest of the series, but this was a fun wild ride. 2y
Leniverse It certainly sounds it! 2y

This is the only steampunk book I've read. I do have others (including the rest of this series) but they're all in boxes (hence no photo). I quite liked it, suited the mystery lover in me. I read so long ago, I don't recall who were all the (real) Victorian people in it. I would however want to own what passed for a taxi in this book. Would make a killing flitting people about town. #seasonsreading2016 #steampunk

melissanorr This has been on my TBR since I stumbled across it at the library! 3y
drokka @melissanorr I really need to find the next ones to catch up on the series. If only we could invent a time machine. 3y
