Wishlist Wednesday: The Bookman


A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.

The Bookman
by Lavie Tidhar
release date: 7 January 2010
A masked terrorist has brought London to its knees - there are bombs inside books, and nobody knows which ones. On the day of the launch of the first expedition to Mars, by giant cannon, he outdoes himself with an audacious attack. For young poet Orphan, trapped in the screaming audience, it seems his destiny is entwined with that of the shadowy terrorist, but how?
Like a steam-powered take on V for Vendetta, rich with satire and slashed through with automatons, giant lizards, pirates, airships and wild adventure, The Bookman is the first of a series.

Why it's on my wishlist
Steampunk is starting to grow on me, even though I have yet to actually read any books in the genre. Otherwise, book-bombs sound exciting 8D Plus, I've always liked (non-romantic) destiny stuff and anti-heroes. V for Vendetta has also been on my wishlist for a while now.
