One thought on “Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon

  1. Eric

    The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack was a fun steam punk romp with a sci fi time travel twist The pace was break neck, even if the plot was a bit incoherent at times The interplay between the colorful cast of characters, most of which were stolen from real life historical figures, made the book This same winning recipe continued in The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man, which left me excited to read this third and final volume of the Burton Swinburne trilogy.Sadly, that excitement died the [...]

    I read the majority of this during tometopple and I have to say it s a weird coincidence that I read Theatre of the Gods and then this as both have a similar light, witty and steampunk vibe to them I wish I hadn t had a long gap between starting and finishing this one as I started it months ago, put it down, and then had to restart some of it when I returned to it this time around I think that if I d been able to just go straight through my rating would have been better, but that is entirely dow [...]

    Brilliant, book 3 is the best, all comes together in a near perfect bookory flow just flows carrying me along with itaracters mature in a amazing way Highly recommended Book 4 has a lot to live up too to be better than this.

  4. Andy

    Eagerly awaitedHad to really focus with the opening chapter as was totally lost Thankfully about 50 pages in we get a recap which then makes sense of what id jus tried to fathom gets me noodle back into the book Diverging or is that converging timelines time travel has that effect We re then in Jolly ol England present day, well for Burton Swinburne, it s 1863 London Great stuff as all the characters from the prior books flood back into the story but then it takes a turn I wasn t sure as to how [...]

    What a disappointment After really loving the first 2 and putting aside the other books I was reading to finish the trilogy I was really let down Interminable descriptions of the trip across Africa to find the Naga diamonds that are one of the main characters of the story I lost the thread of the plot even after scanning through pages and pages There were 7 sentences just to describe Burton changing from one car to another What a waste of my time but I finished it and then the disappointment con [...]

    The tone of all three novels in this trilogy have been quite different The first, The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack, was a straight up steampunk historical time travel adventure that well known sub genre novel the second, The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man, took that premise and played it into of a mystery direction This third novel, Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon, changes tack again to a much darker place the horrors of war in Africa where the technologies of war have run am [...]

    Wellis was a bit of a slog I ve started reading this back in March and only now finally finished it Something kept me back from reading it, again and again for some reason I figured it out at the end.So, Sir Richard Francis Burton goes on his final adventure in this trek across Africa and across time He is joined by the entire cast of characters that we ve come to appreciate since his first adventures and the journey is one of grief, troubles, true friendship, honor and sacrifice ultimately Unfo [...]

    Genre steampunk, sci fiRating 5I listened to this book.Wow Mr Hodder has been added to my list of favorite authors I love his humor and his imagination His stories The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack, The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man, and The Secret of Abdu El Yezdi are so intricately linked My idol Charles Darwin and other evolutionary biologists plays a central role The discussions of natural selection and religion are very interesting The series is a must read Of the four, this is m [...]

    I finished this maybe last Burton and Swinburne novel and while I plan to talk a bit later on further thought, for now i will say that overall I thought it a very good book despite that it almost fell in the solipsistic the action of one or characters can erase change timelines ie have God powers ie solipsism trap that tends to afflict time travel timeline changes novels Very good writing and in the local chapter by chapter, adventure by adventure, scene by scene the book is excellent, but in [...]

    Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally This is the third volume now of Mark Hodder s steampunk series, in which the real life Victorian explorer Richard Francis Burton and libertine artist Algernon Swinburne fictionally team up for a series of adventures in an alt history 19th century, and nicely illustrates the problem with missing the first title in su [...]

  13. Richard Wright

    Well, that was exceptional Hotter takes the ideas he s messed around with in previous books time travel and cause effect, parallel timelines, alternate history and wraps them into a vast, trilogy ending quest story across Africa Actually two different quest stories, in two different alternate histories, featuring the same character Sir Richard Francis Burton Free of the sometimes wildly outrageous steampunk London he has created in previous books, the harsh reality of Africa in the Nineteenth ce [...]

    I had to go back in time no easy task, let me assure you to re write this review PLEASE NOTE SOME MILD SPOILERS This series has for your reading enjoyment Sir Richard Francis Burton, re made by a quirk of time into an Indiana Jones type action hero, a wonderful creation that you stick with until the bitter end because he is written so well The end is bitter because slight spoiler alert Hodder turns him into a tragic hero, poor sap.An entire raft of other characters taken from real life personage [...]

    Mark Hoder always gives you your moneys worth A splendid story teller with a than a vivid imagination he blends both in this tale that spans multiple continents and time lines While the steampunk genre is the pallete he paints the story on he also takes on world politics, religious and spiritual dogma.The Kings agent Burton has been given the assignment to secure the last Naga black diamond to ensure England s grip on the world remains in tact However the Germans and the Prussians have other id [...]

    Hodder is likely one of the best Historical Fantasy Steampunk authors today I have enjoyed the Burton Swinburne novels, and I m looking forward to his next 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 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 [...]

    Explorer Burton and his poet sidekick Swinburne are caught up in a race to the lake regions of central Africa in a bid to recover the black diamond known as the Eye of the Naga, before it can be retrieved by a group of Prussians accompanied by John Speke The world of this alternate universe remains as bizarre as ever, and the story shifts between 1863 and a much different version of World War I to which Burton has time traveled Once again it remains entertaining, with a host of cameos, from Osca [...]

    I found the third book in the series not as much fun as the previous two It is a darker, thought provoking book, and rather sad 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 1863 trek through Africa, and in 1914 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 [...]

  19. Ben

    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 b [...]

  20. Nigel

    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.

  21. Sharon

    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 to this book and it s predecessors than just a good story.Blog link genteelarsenal 20

  22. Deanne

    Enjoyed this but it feels very tangled, with various timelines in play It seems the the characters try to resolve things the complicated things become Wondering how Hodder is going to resolve the multiple time periods.

  23. Suzy

    I wasn t happy with the end, it kind of ruined the whole trilogy Which had been excellent up until then.

  24. Notme

    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 and 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 any 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 started, and, as in this [...]

    Slog, slog, slog Slog through a jungle Slog through a swamp Slog through a desert How bout another jungle Now a swamp, then back to a jungle.Halfway through, I realized I really didn t care what happened to anyone The first book in the series was very good It s been downhill ever since There are several books in the series, but I don t know if I ll read them.There were several good parts to this The book s construction was interesting No details I ll let you discover it for yourself The last ch [...]

  26. Benjamin Kahn

    Wow This book brought up its rating with its finish I found the early going confusing, and the trip through Africa a bit of a slog no pun intended I know it was meant to be confusing, as there was a lot of foreshadowing going on, but I still didn t have the patience for it But the ending kind of blindsided me, in a good way, and improved my opinion of the book overall It s just too bad it took so long to get where it was going I wouldn t recommend this book if you haven t read at least the first [...]

    Everyone likes to find a twenty in their wallet they forgot they had Nestled between some wrinkly old receipts, its discovery puts a smile on your face and you find yourself saying Hello, where have you been all this time I found the final three quarters of Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon a little like that, for reasons I ll blather about shortly.Welcome to the by now utterly bizarre universe occupied, amongst others, by Sir Richard Burton, famous explorer and agent for King Albert see, [...]

    In Hodder s final installment of this steam punk trilogy, we again meet Sir Richard Burton near the conclusion of the tale, which in turn takes place about forty years prior to we left him off in the second book, The Clockwork Man We and Burton are not given long to dwell in the past before Hodder spirits us away to 1914 and World War I Unlike our Great War, this one has already gone one for considerable length of time and British are making a last stand in East Africa Just forget about the Brit [...]

    I really enjoy the series so far, but I didn t like this one too much It took me forever to get through The time shifts were well done, but I found the entire thing to be rather dull Which is weird because there was quite a lot going on.
