I absolutely loved listening to this book. It's so over-the-top ridiculous that that's what makes it so enjoyable. It felt very much like reading a farce. I mean, would anyone take seriously names like "Bumbersnoot" and "Mrs. Barnaclegoose"? I can't imagine so. Whether or not Carriger took her own writing seriously, I don't know, but it was funny and lighthearted because of the Rococo levels of word icing. I think this might just be part of the Steampunk style--a little bit of the ridiculous in everything. I enjoyed it in quite a different way than I've enjoyed anything else. It was so unrealistic that, rather than suspending my disbelief, I reveled in it. What a strange experience! But it was a blast. I absolutely recommend listening to this, rather than reading it. I was propelled right into the sequel.

Here's an outstanding audio performance of steampunky goodness. Deeply satisfying and well written fluff.
