    1 thought on “Jonah and the Clockwork Goblin

    1. Matthew Edwards’ debut novel gives us High Fantasy with a notably Australian tone; if you’ve never imagined that dwarves could be like wombats, or that the Kelly Gang could be humanoid Tasmanian Tigers, now’s your chance. The titular Jonah, a lonely and reclusive orphan, is drawn by circumstance into a magical world within the earth, and is well versed enough in fantasy literature to cite Jules Verne as soon as he discovers this. Jonah is an avid reader, unlike his older brother Shaun, who [...]

    2. Jonah and the Clockwork Goblin is a lovely fusion of uncommon elements to make a story that feels decidedly different from what can be a run-of-the-mill experience in young adult coming of age fantasy novels. While Jonah is a fairly standard whining teenager who needs to grow up, this is not a standard story about elves, dwarves and wizards. The world of Godenow is a fantastical subterranean Steampunkesque Australiana. It is a hollow Earth realm with a mix of ancient myths and traditional folklo [...]

    3. This was a very enjoyable read, a rollicking fantasy coming of age. Jonah is fifteen, feels useless and resentful of his older brother whom he looks up to but whom he feels abandoned him. On his way to wrecking his young life, Jonah finds himself falling down a hole, like Alice, to a world no less extraordinary. Here he meets various races of beings - Baldurain, Sitnaltan and immortals among them - and with the help of his 'adoptive parents', learns to fight for those he loves and to push agains [...]

    4. Fantastically pieced together coming of age tale. The odd background world of Godenow is beautifully described without being bogged down in details. Jonah can be related to with ease, and as the story unfolds, and brings more characters into the fray, his journey, and the fate of that world becomes urgent as he fights to save more than just his own skin. A wonderful read, and while aimed at teens, fans of the fantasy genre will love it.
