review 1: This book was ok but it wasn't the best. There was nothing really special about this book, which was a let down because the blurb made it sound really interesting. It wasn't a really bad book but at times it got very boring and go a bit confusing with the weird names. The plot wa...

review 1: I'm about half way through and loving it! It's so rare to find an author who can write a 5 book long series and it still be engaging and unpredictable on book 5. Gail Carriger never ceases to amaze me with her humor, she even uses the language choices to her advantage. I LOVE ...

review 1: This was actually fairly good. I haven't read many reviews on books --> mangas unlike the books --> movies that has taken the world by storm. I could see the mangas being rather popular and from there encouraging people to read the books. There is still quite a lot of sass & wit ...

review 1: 3.5 stars. This is an excellent sequel, and the audiobook is superbly narrated. I honestly don't think I'd enjoy this series half as much if I wasn't listening to it, and I am not normally an audio fan! Sophronia et al are back to their conspiracies, and this time, there is much ...

review 1: I read this series because the first book was recommended by my daughter, Sarah Easley. I bought the bundle of all five books. I thought the whole series was fun! I love the characters! Alexia is great. So unsure of herself to begin with. Then finds love, a life, adventure, her g...

review 1: Loved to see more of Floote! (I never knew he could talk so much.) The language/dialogues were just as clever/amusing/well-written as always, but I simply couldn't like Alessandro much. However, I really wish he lived long enough to see his daughter married to a werewolf. XD THAT...

review 1: “Alec suddenly lost access to the part of his brain that housed the English language.”Marine Biology is an almost unfairly amusing story. Conversation is very hard to write well, but Miss Carriger manages to pull it off perfectly, creating a brilliantly witty exchange. Every time...

review 1: I really like My Sister's Song. I originally read it because I am a big fan of Gail Carriger's other books. This one is filled with her unique style of writing and humor. I liked that historical, Roman side as I have always been interested in the Roman era. I also loved the stron...

review 1: Otra muy agradable entrega de “El protectorado de la sombrilla”. Ahora nos dan un paseo fuera de Londres debido a un “incidente prenatal” del que no cuento más para no hacer spoiler.Si estáis leyendo esta crítica supongo que al menos os habréis leido alguno de los dos libros ante...

review 1: This was better than Carriger's first YA. I'm hopeful for the next one. I read the first of the Parasol Protectorate series on assignment several years ago and fell in love with Carriger's wit. After reading all of that first series I was looking forward to what she would do next...

review 1: If I loved the Parasol Protectorate series and Alexis's adventures, well I must ABSOLUTELY ADORE the Finishing School books - I read numbers 2 & 3 in quick succession this last couple of days, after a few weeks of being uninspired by everything I picked up, and fell down the rabb...

review 1: The Parasol Protectorate - A mix of Gothic and Steampunk story, the 5 books are entertaining and the story has its fun moments, my only issue is the repetitive description of details or the nature of characters, after the first two books I started skipping complete paragraphs, wi...

review 1: The Parasol Protectorate Series by Gail Carriger is a treasured find from 2010. I was riding home from work on a very packed bus and noticed the cover of the book the man sitting across from me was reading. He had a bemused, wry grin on his face. Something told me he was reading ...

review 1: A fun, short romp through a whimsical worldThis definitely was short, but I enjoyed it. I loved the POV voice of Fairy Cups, but I felt as if I were reading something that could have been fleshed out more, especially the ending which summed up decades of character plot in mere se...

review 1: Crudrat is a bit of a departure, more space drama sci-fi than steampunk, but it is still Carriger's unique wit and style. There's a strong female lead, Maura, who is set apart from society both by her appearance and her actions. She's thrown into awkward and exciting situations...
