    Three Hours of My Life Are Gone & I Want Them Back

    This was probably the worst book I have read in years. The plot made little to no sense and the author used obscure technical terms without bothering to explain the meanings. For example, I spent most of the book trying to figure out what the heck a footplate was & was never given any hint except that it's part of a steam engine. The hero was a callow, cowardly lump who occasionally used truly foul language regarding women for nothing more than shock value. This book will be boring and offensive to anyone with half a brain and any respect for women. To top it all off, the ending was pulled out of thin air and with very little regard for the intelligence of the reader. Don't waste your time.

    An enjoyable period piece accidental detective story

    The slang and focus on railroading can be a bit to bear, but at the same time it's rather ambitious and an interesting read. About as close as I will ever come to watching at work the mind of a very early 20th century young Englishman. The character very much seems a product of his times, whatever that might translate into a century later here in America. I look forward to reading the sequel The Blackpool Highflyer. Don't be put off by the negative review. Like the movie Momento just grin and bear it for about 10 minutes, then it takes off and you keep turning the page.
