5.0 out of 5 stars The writing is excellent, fluid and poetic without distracting from the pacing, May 15, 2015
I adored this Steampunk novel. The writing is excellent, fluid and poetic without distracting from the pacing. Both the characters and the world are well-drawn, vivid and engrossing. I loved the inclusion of the circus, and enjoyed the twists at the end. Particularly delightful are the epigrams from the Bullet Catcher's Handbook at the beginning of each chapter.

4.0 out of 5 stars A vibrant and colorful time travel adventure, April 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Still Time (Paperback)
Still Time brings New Orleans vividly to life. The detailed descriptions of the city, its diverse scents and textures, the lavish food and clothing, are all rich and sensuous, one of the author's greatest strengths. The time travel element allows the play of the modern day perceptions of the liberated heroine, Maddy, against the sensibilities of the fascinating cast of period characters, especially my favorite, the courtesan Félicité. The caste system of the time is far more complex and convoluted than I realized, even though I've read a fair amount about the era. Some of the gens de couleur libre kept white slaves. Although there are dark elements, and the history is filled with conflict and drama, the tone makes Still Time primarily an entertaining romp through history that allows the reader to learn more about this enthralling period. While I preferred the deeper emotional complexity of Llewellyn's fascinating book about in Impressionist painter Degas, Creole Son, this was an engaging read.

Lots of chocolate chips. Not too sweet, with a crunchy texture and almost nutty taste to the cookie part. Better than a lot of bakery cookies.

I bought these hoping that they would run a little wide. Sigh. No. They are regular mediums. The brand seems very well made, and has lots of clever and pretty styles. Alas, they don't fit and I'll return them.
