What an AMAZING story! I’ve got to tell you, I’m actually listening to this book for the second time. The first time I listened to it I loved it but this time I am listening with my twin boys. They Love it. Its their first steampunk novel and I am so happy to see they both like the same genre of books that I do. Its rare when all three of us like the same book.
That being said, the Author Matthew J Kirby, has spun an intricate yet simple story of three children learning to thrive instead of merely surviving. Through young friendships and strong family values, the three friends embark on a journey of a lifetime. This book will stay with you long after you read it.
The Clockwork Three by Mathew Kirby was a great book! I actually listened to this one mostly because I wanted to make sure it was going to be okay for my kids to read. I was looking for a book in the steam punk genre that would be interesting enough yet something the twins could understand. I love steam punk so much that I thought they might like it also. I have not told them about this book yet but when I do and they read it I will post what they say about it.
As the review goes, I was very impressed with this story. It had some foundation in history but yet the magic and mystery it needed for the story to carry through. The grammar and voice of the book were both suitable for younger readers yet kept even me highly entertained. I laughed and cried and almost popped out of my seat with wanting to know what was around the corner.
I can not wait to introduce this new genre to my kids. I’m sure they will love it as much as I did, if not the genre then at least this book!
