Book Review: “Bartleby and James” by Michael Coorlim

An absolutely delightful romp through Edwardian London! This was such a fun book to read. It’s categorized as Edwardian Steampunk which is a genre I’ve never picked up before so I had no idea what to expect. I was so pleasantly surprised. This story is set in the early 1900’s, has a bit of a Sherlock and Watson feel and explores the scientific developments of the period in a fun way. The heroes are Alton Bartleby, an aristocratic son with a short attention span, and James Wainwright, an engineer who loves to invent new machines. These two guys are such good friends and so likable; the author has done a great job fleshing out these characters. They take on four different cases in this book ranging from automatons to spirits. This book is the first in a series and I am definitely interested to read the rest. There is some violence but no bad language or sex scenes so I think it would be suitable for just about any age. The book is on the shorter side, so a perfect lazy Sunday read. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did.

Happy Reading!
