Publisher's Summary

Fleeing across a roof on a dark night in Victorian London, a thief crashes through a glass skylight to almost certain death. But an ambitious young doctor revives and reconstructs his shattered body, proudly showing off his handiwork at the Scientific Society where the city's intelligentsia meet. It is there that the robber picks up the key to a new existence, and on his release from prison begins to lead a double life.

It's good fun

I love Stephen Fry as a narrator. He did so well with Harry Potter and Oscar Wilde etc. I liked him in this too. But I don't know that this book suited him. Perhaps someone with a less "Cambridge accent" may have been more appropriate?

Nonetheless the story was really good fun and was very well put together. I enjoyed it.

Great narration, book not for me

Very well read by Stephen Fry.
I really wanted to like this but I simply didn't care that much about the protagonist. The characterization was somewhat shallow. Maybe this is a kids book.
I don't regret buying this, but I can't be bothered with the next book

Captivating!

A wonderful story, narrated by the fabulous Stephen Fry who brings it to life in the way only he can. I downloaded it to listen to in the car with the kids, and every one of us from the age of 6 to 42 loved every second. We didn't wait for the return journey to finish it, and ended up listening to the end in our hotel!
