    那些好的故事就是,隱約讓你回到童年般深刻。

    A tale in which everything, even the tightly constructed plot, is built on the rules of clockmaking.

And once the gears are turning there's no stopping them, so you better be careful what you set in motion.

    我認得這個鐘,我喜歡它。它有一種天真愉悅的嘻笑聲,由深層內部發出的咯吱咯吱聲響輕快又活潑,述說它如何聚集愛與想像,發出下一次的滴答。這些滴答聲流暢開朗,每一聲似乎都在告訴你,這也許是你不曾遺忘的童心。
