Journal Entry 1 by JemimaJ from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Monday, September 24, 2007
I read this book for my book group and thoroughly recommend it.

I really loved it and will look out for others by Liz Jensen. I found all the characters really believable and especially liked Fru Schleswig and her phonetic way of speaking. The descriptions of 21st Century Canary Wharf were fascinating (seen through the eyes of someone from 19th Century Denmark) and so was life in Denmark in both time zones. I found the whole time travel thing completely believable (unbelievably!) but struggled to believe a few things which I thought had been planted in the story to fill in the gaps - ie Professor Krak writing the horoscopes for his wife's magazine. I also wondered what the significance was of Fergus being Scottish and his way of speaking ie calling everyone "hen" did get on my nerves! For some reason every "and" is written "&" which I think enhances the flow.

I've read this book before, and adored it, so when I saw it at the meetup last night I insisted Diomedes should read it too. He only journals once he's read a book as a rule, so I thought I'd let you know it was safe in the meantime!

Journal Entry 4 by Rivercassini from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Picked up at the London meet up tonight the Camel and Artichoke.

This came highly recommended by WistfulDragon, so if I don't enjoy it, I'm going to blame her.

Journal Entry 5 by Rivercassini from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Tuesday, July 08, 2008
A light-hearted and insubstantial neo-gothic romp around Denmark and London, with a trip to an ancient African civilisation thrown in for good measure. Funny in places, touching in others, it's worth a read but don't expect anything profound or particularly memorable. Just plain, good, old-fashioned, fairy-tale story-telling.
