The Watchmaker of Filigree Street 

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
☆☆☆/5

THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2017

Genre: Fiction 

There was a lot of talking, and little understanding that the problem would not go away if only one complained sufficently.

This book was a debut and a little odd at that. Very reminiscent of a Haruki novel but less intense.

A young telegrapher finds himself with a mysterious watch. 6 months later, this same watch saves his life from the explosion that tore apart Scotland Yard and he seeks out the watchmaker who turns out to be even more mysterious than anticipated. Believing that his new friend may be the maker of the bomb, our hero tries to get to the bottom of it while experiencing adventure along the way. 

This book was beautifully written with a sense of mysterious circumstance and being in the right place at the right time. As the story unfolded you invest more time into it, only to be disappointed at the ending.

It wasn’t a great book. But it was decent.
