I expected more
Based on reviews I had seen beforehand, I was really looking forward to this book and story, as the idea of the dreambooks and cards sounded interesting to me. The reader did a marvellous job in expressing the different accents and voices, so I enjoyed him very much. However, the story became less and less interesting and appealing to me as it unravelled its rather brutal course. Sometimes, I got lost in the storyline. This may be due to two facts: on one hand, I intended to get to the end of this audio book as quickly as possible (and it may not have had my fullest attention), or on the other hand, the abridged version cut out some important scenes that would have been needed to fully understand all connections. Even though I was glad to learn that the main characters survived this ordeal, however, I will not read the sequel.

Alfred Molina is a master storyteller
This is a wonderful audiobook, It deserved 5 stars if it would have been the unabridged version. GW Dahlquist has written a fantastic debut novel set in the Victorian era on the verge of discovering the first strokes of the industrial revolution. Some, however, pursue this industrialisation for less nobler purposes. The characters are memorable, each with their endearing qualities, to be loved or hated. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the sequel!
