I was a bit hesitant about buying this book at first. I downloaded a sample, hemmed and hawed, and finally just bought the thing because I couldn't stop wondering what happens next. At first, the book seemed cluttered with a bunch of supporting characters. I felt like I was trying to wade through who was important and who wasn't, and the dream sequences were confusing. But hang in there! I was so glad I did. One thing did hook me pretty quickly, and that was the main character, Imogen. She's what made me take the plunge and buy the book. Despite what seemed like a slow start, I really wanted to find out what happened to her. She's a really great heroine: funny, strong-willed, smart... I could go on and on about her. She leaves so many of today's teen heroines in the dust. Imogen is not the type to sit around and mope after some mysterious supernatural boy. Nope. She's entirely, engagingly human, thrust into a world of supernatural danger in which she has a very pivotal role. She's proud of who she is and wouldn't be anyone, or anything, else than a kind, strong-willed, smart and brave human teenager.

A supernatural world has existed right under Imogen's very nose since she was born. But when this world rises up and consumes her, taking some of her old friends along and bringing new ones, she accepts these changes with the perfect mix of awe and fun. With Imogen, it's not a case of, "Oh, I can't believe it, vampires and magic exist, who ever would have guessed." Nope. Instead of taking half the book to puzzle things out and come to terms with the supernatural, her thoughts are more along the lines of, "Vampires? Magic? Cool! Let's go visit the underworld." Lucius is also great.

I originally read this book awhile ago and since then I have reread it a multitude of times. I have even had the pleasure of being able to converse back and forth with Mr. Porter directly through the reading of his blog and myspace. I love this book. I am a mother of three girls, and a fan of Twilight, Harry Potter, basically anything supernatural. I have gotten used to not really being surprised by this genre of writing as there is only so much you can twist. Well, I give it up to Mr. Porter because he was able to twist me into a crazy realm of the supernatural! I love the descriptions and the story itself is wonderful. Rather than trying to write a new review for it, I decided I will share my reaction after my first time reading The Pocket Watch. It is definately a book worth the time and money.
Here is my initial response immediately after finishing The Pocket Watch:

I am NOT an eloquent writer, unlike you Mr. Porter. I am, however, an avid book reader. I love books of all shapes and sizes. I can delve into a world and not come up for days. Having said this, I have been lucky enough on occasion to read "indie" books as it may be. I love the opportunity to read something new and refreshing. I have been disappointed many times in the books I have read but this novel by far surpasses all of my expectations. I was a little timid going into reading this book.... I was thinking, "Okay, this is like Harry Potter meets Twilight" but the more I dived into the book, I realized that, although also a supernaturally themed book, it is in it's own category. A new up and coming cultural phenom. Your story is absolutely amazing. From page one of The Pocket Watch, I was captivated. The story leapt off the pages with such vivid descriptions.

Sure, this was an interesting book. As far as the plot went, it was fairly captivating and had some interesting twists. The characters, while not as fleshed out as some in other YA fiction, had at least some depth and motivation.

However, I would never let a kid read this book, because it is so chock full of typos, grammatical errors, and incorrect word usage. He used the word "irritancy" multiple times. That is indeed a word, but it is not the one that he was looking for. There are many cases of him using the wrong word, as though he used a thesaurus but couldn't be bothered to check the meaning of the word he substituted.

I can forgive errors for the sake of style and voice, but these were just errors, plain and simple. I feel like no one even edited this book, or if they did, then they shouldn't have. I found it hard to focus on the story when I found an error on every page.

I received a review copy from the author and first will come rigth out and say that mentions in the previous review of Twilight made me leery as nothing will force me near that series. Not to say I don't enjoy vampires in my stories but it's been overdone.

The Pocket Watch, on the other hand, didn't strike me as that type of read. I believe the characters pulled me in first. Imogen is striving to be a regular seventeen year old when she is anything but. She is a wonderfully written, likable girl that makes you want to read more and more. All of the characters you find in this first book by Mr. Porter will make you curious about them. Aside from Imogen, I especially liked Lucius and look forward to more on him and our young Imogen.

Yes, fans of Twilight and even Harry Potter will enjoy this book but even if you aren't fans of those titles, this book will be one that will pull you in, and make you want to read from start to finish. The epilogue with the meeting of Lucius's family is especially interesting and I throughly enjoyed this book and will look forward to the others in this trilogy.
