A notable review of my book 'The Steampunk Adventures of Harry Lampeter' with thanks to Johan Coetzee

  The Steampunk Adventures of Harry Lampeter   Read Rate this book 1 of 5 stars 2 of 5 stars 3 of 5 stars 4 of 5 stars 5 of 5 stars The Steampunk Adventures of Harry Lampeter by   Roger Ley   (Goodreads Author) Johan Coetzee 's review Jan 30, 2021 It was amazing "Oh behave, baby!" Okay so that line isn't anywhere in the book, but the story had such an Austen Powers vibe that I could not resist. The novel is short, yet it manages to cover a lot of ground. Of necessity it is quite fast paced. I liked the overall flow and rhythm. Every sentence has meaning and every word choice is important. As such, it isn't the kind of book you listen to "while". While doing the dishes is okay but while driving or while cooking might not work. If you've missed a beat because you were focusing on something else, you may get lost. Okay, so about the story. Harry is a self-important, narcissistic, arse. I like him. I probably wouldn't be friends with him in real life
