The Affinity Bridge

The Affinity Bridge by George Mann is a Victorian, steam-punk detective novel. While I am usually partial to this genre, I must confess I found this novel somewhat disappointing.

The whole book reads like a movie of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen caliber. There is too much action, the plot plays out much too fast and the characters are mere puppets, with little real depth or interest.

The prose itself is not bad, but also has no real sterling characteristics and comes across rather flat.

I feel like I have long outgrown books of this nature.
