Aladdin and His Wonderfully Infernal Device
Publisher: ImagineThat! Studios
It's not that great of a departure from Aladdin, but what I really enjoyed about it were the changes in the character of the mother and the princess. I also liked the genie's origin story.
How can I say anything about this story without giving away the wonderful twists and turns?It's brilliant.The writing style is elegant and fun. The adventure compelling. And the sheer imagination will hook you.
Could use a heavy-handed editor. Littered with typos and errors and repetitions of the same tired words and phrases. But a good take on a classic story, nonetheless.
A lovely steampunk story. At first, it was hard for me to shake the Disney Aladdin out of my head, but Morris' language and really brilliant additions of steampunk, magic, and sciences to the story really makes it its own!A great quick read. :)
