    一個憂心如何製作畢業作品的鐘錶學徒
    一個在酒店說故事的小說家
    一個為了特殊用途製造的發條人偶
    一個洞悉一切,卻又不操縱人們的博士
    宛如發條機關一般,逐漸運轉的故事......

    《發條鐘》是一本奇幻文學、兒童文學、童話或者科幻作品
    當中儘管包含許多要素,但這都不妨礙閱讀
    不論何種讀者,都能讀出不同味道
    除了對於故事感到驚喜
    更會對於作者的說故事技巧,以及渾然天成的故事結構所吸引
    是一本雖然輕薄,卻讓人愛不釋手
    充斥各種寓意又不流於說教的精美作品

    "Il cuore donato deve anche essere tenuto"

    In questo bellissimo racconto breve dal sapore gotico c'è di tutto: un intreccio ben sviluppato, suspense, un villain misterioso, un antieroe, un'eroina dal cuore d'oro e una morale.

    Mi piacerebbe molto vederne una trasposizione cinematografica sullo stile de "Il mistero di Sleepy Hollow". Chissà...

    那些好的故事就是,隱約讓你回到童年般深刻。
    那時候的自己還相信,世上有魔法、夢不會消失、所有的幻想都是藏在某個角落的糖。

    那些好的故事就是,精緻、如同石子帶起的水波;
    每個輕顫的畫面,都是鄉愁。

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

    The ethical principles of this children story are surprisingly in line with the steampunk agenda: a good automaton, not to talk about a truly stunning breathtaking lifelike piece of art, is only realized through workmanship and sweat. And once the gears are turning there's no stopping them, so you better be careful what you set in motion.

    DIY for preteens: putting the -punk in clockpunk.

    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。
