    The Clockwork Giant reader ß ebook ´ citybreakscheap The Clockwork GiantLiked it didn't love it I think it's competently written The plot is solid and the characters fairly well realized but it felt to me like a romance novel with some steampunk elements shoehorned in Granted those steampunk elements are finely detailed and fun but they were few and far between compared to the protagonist mooning over the boy she loves but does she love her? And oh he's from a wealthy family and they could never be together because she's a mere shopgirl and his family are all classist snobs but wait There's nothing wrong with that story but it's just not my thing Based on the jacket copy I was hoping for a bit conspiracy and myster

    The Clockwork Giant reader ß ebook ´ citybreakscheap The Clockwork GiantOkay so this is a slightly unusual situation I'm reviewing a book that won't be published until 2015 but it was published when I bought it That's because the author self published and then subseuently sold the book and a seuel to a major publisherThat explanation out of the way let's talk about The Clockwork Giant by Brooke Johnson It's a Young Adult novel with a steampunk setting and a heavy emphasis on romance So this isn't going to be to everyone's tastes But I think you should judge stories based on what they are aiming to be not some universal constant idealTick TockWhile the genre is steampunk the real emphasis in this story is on clockwork There are other technologies certainly but the central character Petra loves clockwork and the author does a great job both of showing that fascination and of making a rather dry and technical subject matter interesting to the readerThat's not easy to do when you consider that the vast majority of thos

    The Clockwork Giant reader ß ebook ´ citybreakscheap The Clockwork GiantI received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review I rated this 4 out of 5 StarsA steampunk novel set in the early 1860’s The Brass Giant by Brooke Johnson is an enjoyable mid length story with colorful characters sharp dialogue a bit of mystery and a touch of romance While a book dealing with mechanics and machinery Ms Johnson creates a world that is fairly easy to understand even for those of us not mechanically inclined In addition Ms Johnson tackles some of society’s issues of the time poverty the lack of women’s rights and uality education being denied to the poor If you’re looking for something a little different in your historic

    The Clockwork Giant reader ß ebook ´ citybreakscheap The Clockwork GiantOriginally published at Reading RealityThe story outline is a familiar one but the steampunk setting changes up some of the elements in some very interesting waysThe plot is simple – underprivileged girl with big dreams meets highly privileged guy who will help her realize her dreams but only if she helps him with super secret project This is a society where no one believes that women have intelligence or capability so no one important will suspect she is really helping him And of course they fall in love and get caught not necessarily in that order and discover that the entire enterprise is much serious and much much dangerous than they ever imaginedAdd in one final element – that underprivileged girl is an orphan who turns out to be
