That Inevitable Victorian Thing Reviews

  • Katherine Locke
    I suspect this book will get a rabid cult following, and I am 100% here for it. This book deserves such a following. Bring me the fanart and the fanfic. Inevitable Fandom for the win. I've always loved Johnston's books. There's something alluring, quirky and inviting about her prose that I don't oft...

    In summary: it's a book about a world in which colonialism ended before its true impact could set in, a world in which brown people and disabled people and queer people don't have to fight for our very right to breathe. And yes, it definitely would never have happened, but it was fucking awesome to ...

    Ok so this book had some truly awesome rep, which I'll fangirl over in a bit! And I feel like I'm probably being obnoxiously fussy with the parts that didn't work for me, so let me first say that I think a lot of people will like the book. This is just my own personal take...History is rewritten so ...

    3.75* Really interesting world building in this book. I like the futuristic Victorian feel of it. Made for an interesting blend of old and new customs. There was a huge amount of diversity in this book, both in race, gender and sexuality which also made the Victorian aspect of it more interesting. M...

    I DNF'd this at the 43% mark. I wanted to like this book - it's so pretty and the premise sounded really cool. But this is just is one of those situations where the book just isn't for me. Victorian London is my least favorite time period for historical books, but I wanted to give this one a try bec...

    I have so many thoughts and feelings regarding this book yet at the same time, I'm unable to wrap my brain around everything. Here's hoping that some semblance of this review makes sense. First off, I have to mention my love of the settings within this novel. Rarely do I ever get to read a book wher...

    2 stars. Ouch, what a letdown! This book had so much going for it, but delivered so little. The fascinating world and the great representation just didn’t weigh up against the lack of plot and the weak characters. *sad trombone sound*This is my third book by author E.K. Johnston, and in a way ...
  • Veronique
    3.75*Johnston puts together something quite intriguing, an alternate world where colonisation didn’t take the same form and resulted in a place where multi-ethnicity is valued, not curbed. The mixture of old fashioned traditions from the Victorian time, such as entering society through debutant...
