Children's fiction. This book starts out ok, with a girl named Mosca carrying a belligerent goose under her arm. The problem is that it takes a while to get into it (so I wasn't able to read a snatch of it here or a snippet there when I had a spare moment). The other problem is that it was rather long and involved. I kept waiting for Mosca to hit upon something important and save the day, and that would be the end of the story, but no, the plot weaves on and on, and I'm really not interested in reading about so much political intrigue, not in a children's book. It's a complicated society she lives in, and I didn't have the time to really appreciate that. So, this one's not for me, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but the most dedicated of readers, but it might not be a bad book for someone under different circumstances (someone who's got long blocks of time set aside just for reading).

I was taken by this book, from the very first scene, in which our heroine is introduced as a small baby, tightly swaddled and hung from a hook in the study where her father is writing a great work of history. The setting is an ingenious fractured reflection of England in about 1700, with the memory of civil war and religious persecution still raw and troublesome; but the scenery is also strongly reminiscent of Pratchett's Ankh-Morpork, with lots of mud, shady inns, disreputable footpads, and scheming patricians and guildmasters. This book is not for the reluctant reader: it is for the reader who likes long words, even if they don't quite know what they mean. The vocabulary is riotously rich, the descriptions vivid and baroque, the plot entertainingly serpentine. MB 30-ix-2020 ( )

Can't get through this one.

It's well written if you're into this sort of thing, very clever turns of phrases and colourful similies. I just didn't find the characters or the plot very engaging. Gave up at about chapter 5, I think it was. ( )

This is an attempt at a madcap adventure cross between urchin in the big city and alert young girl gets caught up in adventure, with the young girl central character being the stone that starts the avalanche that she then dances from boulder to boulder all the way down, being re-re-re-enlightened along the way. Too much a porcupine of a story to strongly captivate or charm - except for the goose which is almost perfectly integrated into the story. ( )

I've read a number of book-centric books over the years and quite a few of them are YA. Some hit you over the head with the book and others are subtle enough to flow right over you and sneak up and bite you in the behind.

This one is the latter kind.

Sure, the power of words is all over the place, but where I like it most is in Hardinge's worldbuilding. The history of this place is not only fascinating and rough, but clever and multilayered. I get the impression we're in an early English period right after the printing press came out. But unlike that period, books soon became anathema. Like religious persecution, even.

Of course, that makes our heroes and villains well-learned action types falling in with thieves and revolutionaries, and that's just plain fun.

So why did I give this four stars rather than five? Because some of the text is a bit dense and the flow wasn't perfect. But I LOVED the world and had a pretty good time with the characters. And the God Goose. :) ( )

Everybody knew that books were dangerous. (p. 12)
Words were dangerous when loosed. They were more powerful than cannon and more unpredictable than storms. They could turn men's heads inside out and warp their destinies. They could pick up kingdoms and shake them until they rattled. And this was a good thing, a wonderful thing ... (p. 433)
