    Fun and Imaginative

    If you love cleverly written fantasy books, it doesn't get much better than the 13 Clocks. The story takes you on a wild and yet slightly farcical ride as you follow the prince's efforts to win the hand of the princess from her wicked Uncle. Yes, this book has the classic elements of a fairy tale but it's also filled with imaginative interpretations of everyday things such as the Duke who killed time (an event which left blood on his sleeves). This is a children's book and a short read, but well worth the time.

    Wonderful!

    "The Thirteen Clocks" is a really fantastic book. I happened to read it in a Barnes & Noble store on a whim, and I couldn't get it out of my head. I had to buy my own copy. If you love literature and fantasy stories, you have to read this book. It's very unique--it seems like a story for children, with a princess and an evil duke, but I think it's really geared more towards adults. It's full of whimsical characters, like a spy named Whisper and an evil duke with "a voice like iron dropped on velvet." The language is perfectly crafted, and rhymes just when it has too. And of course the Golux, with his "indescribable" hat, who is full of surprises. He probably owns a copy of this book himself, and his only problem with the story is that he wishes that Princess Saralinda had a little more personality. Buy this book!

    A wonderful book for kids and adults

    From the Golux (who is a device) to the evil duke (who fears princes who's names begin with an X but don't) this is a hugely fun read. I was delighted by this story as a child and loved it when I reread it a year ago. Highly recommended.
