Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon – Mark Hodder Review

Progress on Alternate: Wibbly stuff… about 71% edited. I think. I hope.

Current Review:

At last. Burton and Swinburne #3. After which point I will be moving into uncharted territory in this series for me. And it made me remember why I stopped reading them… it was giving me a headache! So many different realities, guys. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still love it. But then again, it contains Swinburne. OF COURSE I’d love it. Swinburne’s excitement and desire for life is the best…

Which brings me to a spoiler-less what the hell moment. Because Swinburne at the end of this book… just… what? Say what? We moved from the steampunk into the surreal at this point.

I think there are a lot of complications in this book and you probably need to read it a few times before you completely understand all of the little threads that it ties up, or tries to. Which means not only is it a very long read, but it’s very odd to read too. My main source of confusion was very much… what happens now? Because there’s so many strange little… I don’t even know, ideas… that have been put forward in this book and I honestly have no idea how the author is going to manage them all. But I wish him well with it. I’m looking forward to reading the next one and judging for myself where it can go from here, and whether he truly did manage to pull off what will be, if he does it, a rather impressive undertaking.
