Camera Obscura

Title: Camera Obscura
Author: Lavie Tidhar
Publisher: Angry Robot
ISBN: 978-0-85766-094-7
Why Read?: First Reads
Challenges:  Steampunk, European, A to z, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: I really loved The Bookman, the first in Tidhar's trilogy, and there were parts of Camera Obscura that I really loved too - especially when she encounters Holmes's murder castle outside the White City.  However, the fourth part disgusted me so much that it slowed my reading of it to almost a complete stop; I had to take it in very small doses, and this diminished my liking of it.
Rating: 3 stars
