Book Description

Sept. 1 2012

A remarkable collaboration that is unprecedented in its scope and realization, this exquisitely wrought novel represents an artistic project between the bestselling science fiction author Kevin J. Anderson and the multiplatinum rock band Rush. The newest album by Rush, Clockwork Angels, sets forth a story in Neil Peart’s lyrics that has been expanded by him and Anderson into this epic novel. In a young man’s quest to follow his dreams, he is caught between the grandiose forces of order and chaos. He travels across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy with lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The mind-bending story is complemented with rich paintings by the five-time Juno Award winner for Best Album Design, Hugh Syme.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the journeys in this great adventure... Oct. 11 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a great read. Especially for anyone who is/was young and full of hopes, dreams and ambition like the central character, Owen Hardy. The book cronicles Owen's struggles for success, achievment and finding the answers to leading a meaningful life. All the characters and situations he encounters along the way make for an entertaining story.

Fans of the band Rush will get a kick picking out the various lyrics and album titles that are woven in throughout the storyline.

Roll Jules Verne, HG Wells, a plethora of philosophers, travellers and dreamers into a tome that captivates the imagination and stirs the spirit. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars There was a lot of promise here... Dec 11 2012
Format:Hardcover
...but this book doesn't make use of it. Maybe because the ground was so fertile the author felt it necessary to cover as much of it as possible. The result is a book that covers many kilometers without really stopping to smell the roses. There is just enough detail to make you think that there's something here and then we skip off to something else. In the hands of someone else this might have been an epic journey over two or even three books.

As it stands it reads like a light Young Adult novel with no substance.
