Carefully drawn characters, a compelling storyline and that more than viovid imagination creates a must read book. Jul 15, T. MacArthur rated it really liked it. But his third book is a bit muddled. Hodder is terrific at moving back and forth in time and space, but for some reason it didn't quite work here.
Mark Moon Penn Yan, NY REALTOR®
You know something is up when you hear one of his main characters dealing with events in the early 20th Century, but the transitions between time periods just didn't work clearly. It felt as though I was reading two unreleated stories that got forced together in the end. That is my only, ONLY, complaint about the book. Despite my feeling lost in the story's time changes, I am glad to have read this and recommend it. Dec 26, Mark rated it liked it.

While this wraps up the storyline that began with "Spring Heeled Jack", the final pages hint at another alternate future which I suppose I'll find out about if I continue the series. Apr 05, Suburbangardener rated it really liked it Shelves: action-adventure , sci-fi.
I found the third book in the series not as much fun as the previous two. It is a darker, more thought provoking book, and rather sad.
The World From the Side of the Moon
The humorous moments were heavily outweighed by the tragic, as the author leads the reader on a journey to disaster. Sir Richard Burton is in two separate times, an trek through Africa, and in in the Great War as fought in Africa in an alternate future.

The true tragedy isn't the Great War, but the awareness of how one's actions with the best of intentions can lead to terrible, entirely unforeseen outcomes. Jul 26, Ben rated it liked it. In spite of a remarkable amount of information about Sir Richard Burton and the Victorian era, viewed through the lens of an alternate history, the plot thread became somewhat muddled by the third book of this trilogy.

In addition, I had guessed the "surprise" ending in advance, due to what seemed like overly emphatic foreshadowing to paraphrase Chekhov, the gun was hung rather obviously on the wall early in the first act.

Still, I enjoyed all three books as a whole, and will look for future books by the author. Apr 14, Nigel rated it liked it. This book is the last of a very good trilogy.
However I found this one to be the least satisfying of the three. To use an oft used cliche it felt like the author was juggling too many balls in the air for at least half of of the book. It also made me think of Lonesome Dove in that any character you may have grown to like, had a high probability of meeting an untimely end. That said the alternate time lines of history stocked with historical figures does enough for this book to merit a read.
Dec 17, Sharon rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , steampunk , speculative-fiction , read A striking conclusion to the Burton and Swinburn trilogy. I am still trying to process what I have read. The dramatic adventure portrayed in the novel was compelling and kept the pages turning but there is more to this book and it's predecessors than just a good story. Enjoyed this but it feels very tangled, with various timelines in play. It seems the more the characters try to resolve things the more complicated things become.
Wondering how Hodder is going to resolve the multiple time periods. Feb 29, Suzy rated it liked it. I wasn't happy with the end, it kind of ruined the whole trilogy. Which had been excellent up until then.
Apr 02, Gregory D. Not for a lack of creativity, but because the crazy, steampunk world of the first book became started to teeter on the rails in the second with the sure extreme weirdness of the tech in the second, and here it jumps the shark as Burton time-travels to an alternate WWI that is something like Day of the Triffids meets the Time Machine and HG Wells himself figures prominently as viewed through an extended opium haze, and the entire book becomes an extended device to reboot the world so the series can continue on a parallel, more manageable line.
All well and good, and maybe if I had read this when it came out, that would have worked -- but KNOWING this isn't the end of the road there are three more books , it was hard to feel a lot of pathos when certain characters died, because I knew that Hodder was using time-travel and parallel universe paradoxes like mad. The book actually jumps back and forth between two time-lines so often, with the future timeline taking up so much space that the "Expedition" itself gets lost, as characters appear, are given a swansong and sometimes simply disappear with hardly a word.
We KNOW that the alternate future won't happen, so we have no vested interest in it, and the explanation for Burton's purpose there is not given until the story's climax. And even by time-travel mumbo jumbo, I don't really get what happened. Indeed, the book is so heavy with fatalism, there wasn't much fun to be had at all, though I will say the final chapter was brilliantly written, and Hodder's narrative is always smooth as a gentleman's cravat. All in all, a good, but disappointing read compared to its predecessors, and while I will likely read Book 4, it didn't leave me excited to do so.
Jan 16, Notme rated it it was ok. I am so glad I finished this book. Not because it was worth it for me, but because the torture is finally over. The plot was getting weirder and weirder, the language was getting more and more like that of the XIX century journal which I read several of, way back, when I was young and had lots of time and patience, before finally deciding not to do it anymore. I am not all that crazy about the series in general - and that is why. I always try to finish the book I started, and the series I st I am so glad I finished this book.
