As lways spoilers under the Cuts.

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley. I really liked this book, set in Victorian London, but with a couple of strong fantasy and steampunk elements. It started out with a telegraphist receiving a mysterious watch as an anonymous gift, and a bomb threat, and I thought it would be a bit of a thriller, but it isn’t, really. But it’s a bit hard to describe what happens without spoilers. I can say it’s about a man who see the colours of sounds, and a woman who want to see the ether. And about a man who remembers his future and forgets his past. And two love stories. And a clockwork octopus. And I enjoyed every page of it. This is Pulley’s debit novel and it makes me really excited to see what she writes next.

And Versailles will start airing in Sweden on April 13. Wohoo! I only hope it won’t be any hassle, as it’s on a streaming channel we don’t have. It ought not to be a problem, but I’m always sceptical to those things until they do work. I really, really want to watch the new season. If worst come to worst the French DVD will be released by the end of April (with both the English and the French-dubbed version). But I think that if you are in USA you’ll need a DVD player which can play European DVDs.
