Didn‘t love it, didn‘t hate it. A little too precious for me: I understand the idea is to be entertained by just “spending time” with this narrator, but when nothing happens until the very end, and the author fails to build any real tension or emotion into the storyline, it‘s hard to keep reading.

Good world building but disappointing characters and derivative story. There is a disappointing tendency for steampunk books‘ protagonists to be impossibly innocent and naive- a complicated world with an infantile protagonist lets the entire story down.
