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.

...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.

First, I would like to give credit to the authors and ECW Publishing for offering a complimentary e book to all readers who purchased the hardcover. Not only was it effortless to download but the customer service was excellent.

The whole idea of supporting an album (Rush: Clockwork Angels) with a novel is not only unique but extremely creative. The partnership of Anderson/Peart/Syme makes the entire package a great experience for the reader and fan.

The storyline is reminiscent of Ayn Rand's "Anthem" and Rush's "2112" with the individual having to decide between individualism and collectivism. The surprise though was that our main protaganist, Owen Hardy, was able to persevere and accept his fate and managed through it without having to change the world or set the world on fire.

I did find that the continuous use of Rush lines/lyrics throughout the story a tad disruptive and somewhat cheesie for this reader as it distracted from the overall flow of the story. Instead of reading on, the reader stopped to pause and reflect on the many great songs Rush has recorded over the years. With that said, the use of the CA lyrics at the start of each chapter was extremely helpful in setting up the next stage(s).

The books' ending was very well thought out and introspective as to why Owen Hardy did what he did. And, to that end, the authors tended to their readers very well.

The CA package is extremely well done with a strong story line (Peart/Anderson), beautiful drawings (Hugh Syme), lyrics for each track of the ablum (Peart) and a great afterword from Peart to provide the backdrop for this working concept.

It is a story that young and old will enjoy.

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!

It won't go down in my list of absolute favorites but it held my interest strong enough to make it a quick and enjoyable read. The main character is likeable and the concept of "The Watchmaker" being a mortal demi-god of sorts who strives to rule the world like.....welll.....clockwork, is an intersting one. The concept of it blending this adventurous story with the concept album of the same name will make it a must read for any Peart or Rush fan. It's not a outstanding book but it has all the right elements to make it a fun read.
