This book was so much fun. I loved the way that this alternate history values the written word... I wish I could live in a world like that!
I really loved the characters, and the multi-layered story, and the parallels between the Jane Eyre story-within-the-story and the story. I loved the way that the world of the book was affected by... well everything. The bookworms especially.
I thought that this was brilliant, funny and different. I loved all of the characters, especially Acheron Hades who was wickedly bad.
I will definitely be looking for more of these books - I'm not sure why I waited so long to read this one!
