The Light Ages - Ian R. MacLeod

Jane Austen meets Charles Dickens, with magic electricity by gaslight. Very dull. The drama and conflict is very understated, not enough for me to care. Read Perdido Street Station, instead. There is a good hearted thief, a researcher, a bit of political journalism, but very tame, all in all, very forgettable.

1.5 out of 5
