      There are so many things to like in this story Even with the nitpicks, it was really entertaining First and the best thing about it is that it has a Lovecraftian touch After a whaler got back from the trip to the far north, the streets of Boston became less safe Something has been taking people Nobody could say what it is because of the thick fog That and not many witnesses You get a story within a story too What happened to the ship crew on that job up north The protagonists are interesting too [...]

    2. Rosalind M says:
      3.5 stars and VERY strongly reminiscent of Doctor Who when the story starts out I was excited by the beginning pages, but as I continued reading, I began to suspect that the beginning was the most well revised part The pace was uneven throughout the rest A heavy reader of science fiction and fantasy as I am may not be particularly captivated by the mystery set out here view spoiler The biggest annoyance the author kept allowing Smith to interpret what the creature was thinking or feeling but als [...]

      I randomly stumbled across this book while doing a search for steampunk books Half way through, I went out and bought everything else Andrew Mayne has written His writing style is gorgeous His characters leap off the page The world was vivid and alive I absolutely fell into this story and couldn t put it down If Sherlock Holmes and Caleb Carr s Alienist got together and had a steampunk baby, THIS is what it would look like LOVED it

    4. Jeff Miller says:
      Here is a.99 cent bargain for Kindle.I heard this book recommended on one of the tech podcasts I listen to and at this price decided to give it a try.The novel is kind of a Dr Who Sherlock Holmes Steampunk mashup though it does not take place in London, but in Boston The time element is that this is not a time traveler story in the normal sense in that the mysterious Smith only moves forward in time There is a special emphasis on the scientific aspects in that the mystery is not of the supernatu [...]

      Good stories, needs better editorI like the books and your writing but please learn the difference between then and than , affect and effect or at least get a better editor or proofreader You re starting to drive me nuts Other than that the stories are nicely written and enjoyable I m on your 4th or 5th book now.

    6. Terri Weitze says:
      This is an excellent book for kids who have the vocabulary Well written Chaste, but full of action with both a male and female hero There is quite a bit of gross stuff and some violence but overall pretty tame I found the plot a little too simple to figure out, plus this kind of horror story just isn t my cup of tea.

    7. Pamela says:
      This would have been a good solid three star read, but the ending was just too idiotic AND, although it was clever at first that the main character didn t remember things, it soon became little than an irritating sign of how lazy or inept the writer is.This was the first in a series I shall not be reading.

    8. Roseruf says:
      This is a funny novella No pretensions here, just a nice time reading Just a different approach for a kind of steam punk mystery history I have enjoyed it so much I immediately started reading the next one Waiting for

    9. Nancy says:
      I really like Andrew Mayne Every book of his is a unique story but they all share his amazing gift for story telling A person only gets hints of the disappearing time traveler s life and his new assistant is an interesting person too I d recommend this book.

    10. John R. Dailey Jr. says:

    14. Cindy says:
      Good funI enjoyed this although I would like to also know how Smith remains young A fun read with good amounts of science thrown in.


    15. Vicki Andrew says:
      Very steampunk meets Sherlock Holmes Fun was sad when it ended too quickly with so many unanswered questions that hopefully will have answers in the next in this series

    16. Mary Roskoski says:
      This was interest through the entire story and I enjoyed the characters It did leave a lot unexplained about Smith I am hoping that these things will become clear in the next one.

      The Chronological Man is a time traveling, steam punk adventure brought to us by Andrew Mayne People are disappearing in a mysterious mist, and nobody seems to care Luckily Smith and April Mallone are on the case.The best thing about this book was the characters April Mallone is funny, smart, engaging and full of surprises The surprise being that she seems very ordinary at the beginning and proves herself to be and capable as the book goes on Smith is an enigma, which I think he s supposed to [...]

    18. Samuel Vymes says:
      Here s the short version A fast paced and exciting short novel, this mixture of period and sci fi based fiction is filled with curious visuals and chuckling comedy Daring feats abound amidst what is surely an opening story for a series of like adventures.Here s the long version I picked this up for a buck for something to pass the snowy days at work, and I got a bargain a lot of action, a heaping of mystery, just a pinch of comedic dialogue make this book an excellent introduction to a world fil [...]

      I bought this book for my Kindle because it was a steampunk book and it cost 0.99 And then two months later I read it and was surprised to discover that it was quite good In 1890s Boston, Miss April Malone has a strange job She goes to work everyday and sits in a room by herself She gets requests to read a lot of different things, attend lectures, feed punch cards into things, and keep the coffee pot full One day, after two years of this, a vault door in her workroom opens and a man called Smith [...]

      She couldn t decide if he was a bit mad or if the world moved too slowly for him Perhaps a little of both Steampunk, time travel, a secretary that buys newspapers and pastries for a nonexistent employer every day, and man that stumbles out of a locked room and only knows what s written on the card in his pocket The summery states it all very Doctor Who esque, crossover with Sherlock Holmes and add a steampunked Iron Man in the mix and you have Mayne s first book of The Chronological Man Smith se [...]

    21. David says:
      The Chronological man The Monster in the Mist is a good old fashioned adventure tale A mysterious fog descends over Boston, and people magically and violently disappear in the mist An equally mysterious Smith is awoken from his deep sleep far under the streets to solve this imbalance and put the world to rights once again, at least for the time being anyway This is simple, clean, good old fashioned adventure and I was hooked from the start The character of Smith is excellent, and just enough of [...]

    22. Tarl says:
      This was a fantastic read Full of adventure and just the right hint of mystery, Mayne creates a wonderful world that doesn t give away all of its mysteries and leads you on at just the right pace The characters are believable and realistic, especially Smith and Miss Malone who easily capture the reader s attention The monster in the mist is believable with very little suspension of reality, which is a nice change from books like this Yes, it s not 100% believable, but this IS fiction This book a [...]

    23. D.M. Dutcher says:
      Likable story about a steampunk crusader who is a fusion between Doctor Who and Iron Man, but needs a little to come alive.April Malone works as a secretary by herself in a mysterious building One day the great metal door in that building opens up, and a young man named Smith emerges from it The dazed Smith seems to have been awakened for a purpose, and its soon evident that something is lurking and stealing away people in Boston Can Smith s detective powers and technological ingenuity and Apri [...]

      Mr Smith, the main character in this book, is a Time Lord Mayne the author doesn t come right out and say it, and adds little details to try and say Smith is something besides a Time Lord, but Smith is hundreds of years old, comes to the aid of humans when there s a dire situation, and spends most of his time in a vault that is much bigger than it seems.He s a friggin Time Lord Aside from this because of it, actually this book is a joy Something is making people disappear in the mist in Boston S [...]

    27. Mike says:
      This is an nice surprise It s very likely a new author, but this is a very good novel for a first attempt if I m right, if not, I apologize It s a nice, by the book steampunk ish adventure I was kinda lookin for some Lovecraftian fiction, but tentacles aside, this isn t really horror fare.The writing is a little inexpert, but it was exciting and the author managed to maintain suspense and excitement throughout the adventure This was a fun and interesting read in what appears will be an episodic [...]

      This is a light, enjoyable story very reminiscent of Dr Who In late 19th century Boston, people are disappearing in the mist April Malone is a young woman who has been hired to read, research and file her findings She is amazed when a man, Smith, suddenly appears from the basement, where he has apparently been sleeping for an untold length of time April fills the role of an intelligent, feisty sidekick companion while Smith does his Who impression of tracking down what the danger is and going af [...]

      A delightful combination of Doctor Who and Sherlock set to a Steampunk world April Malone works as a secretary everyday gathering morning papers, coffee and pastries for no one Well, no one ever reads the papers and the coffee and pastries are always tossed at the end of the day Until one day the machine under the office turns on, and the mysterious metal door opensHis name is Smith Not Mr Smith, just Smith, please It says so on the card, anyway Good thing, too, because he doesn t remember much [...]
