This is an auction for DAN LENO AND THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM by Peter Ackroyd. reviews:

"In this novel the light and the dark sides of 19th-century London flow into each other, attracting the attention of famous names such as Marx and Gissing, but also of less-well-known characters, who play a significant role in a tale that is a mixture of fable, adventure and Gothic comedy."

"FIVE STARS!!! "Here we are again!" - these are the last words of Elizabeth Cree and primary character of the book and over time we will find how true these words are. I have never read any book by Ackroyd before but the first experience was pleasantly surprising. DAN LENO AND THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM is a neat little book which can be praised in the best possible fashion. We will find as history repeats itself through generations and through the acts of the generation it's like a play being reenacted. The author effortlessly travels from one decade to another or from one year to another but as a reader you never lose track of time. His descriptions of London in the 1880s are as good as it can get. If you get a chance read this book and you will love it."

"FIVE STARS!!! The concept of time folding in and repeating itself, retracing ones own steps, spreads throughout this book. Starting with a woman lead to the gallows, her last words "Here we go again", echo strangely. An excellent read, funny, scary, tragic, enthralling. Recommended."
