I actually enjoyed the book. In fact I more than enjoyed the book. What everyone else has said about this I am going to discount and say for all my expectations of a mediacore read it far surpassed them. It was a wonderland of steampunk and victorian dystopian wonderland full of hope with no true hope in site. I wept and smiled and could not put it down.
I waited for this, in fact it was my first Waiting for Wednesday post. My eyesight went and I did not want to spend the money for the ebook so my fiance read it outloud to me this last month. It really was lovely.
I recommend it for what it is, dystopia for a young woman coming of age in a world with no real future!
