        1.0% "Unexpected 1st person POV! I wonder how this will change the narration, as that's what I found particularly enchanting with Dixon's previous (and my favourite) book."
        
    2.0%     "Not sure I agree with the presence of endnotes though, they break up the flow of the narrative."
        
    5.0%     "I embraced my mother as well, gently, because I'd outgrown her at age twelve and if I squeezed her too tight, she might snap."
        
    9.0%     ""Growing up I'd mostly ignored Hannah's friends, until one morning a year ago I woke up and they'd suddenly become funny and pretty and all shades of clever."

I love a witty teen boy POV."

I am SO CHARMED by this pseudo-historical alternate world that I can't even. That's probably the cutest sentence in the whole world. This is why I love Dixon."

    61.0%     "I wish they would change the spelling from theater to theatre. It's set in London, after all, even if it is written by an American."
         
    77.0%     "Books are wonderful and everything, but this is so cinematic it would make the most excellent alternate steampunk film."
