INTRODUCTION With the super enticing blurb below All Men of Genius is a novel I have planned to read as soon as I could obtain a copyInspired by Shakespeare s Twelfth Night and Oscar Wilde s The Importance of Being Earnest All Men of Genius takes place in a Victorian London familiar but fantastical where mad science makes the impossible possibleViolet Adams wants to attend Illyria College a widely renowned school for the most brilliant up and coming scientific minds founded by the late Duke Illyria the greatest scientist of the Victorian Age The school is run by his son Ernest who has held to his father s policy that the small exclusive college remain male only Violet sees her opportunity when her father departs for America She disguises herself as her twin brother Ashton and gains entryBut keeping the secret of her sex won t be easy not with her friend Jack s constant habit of pulling pranks and especially not when the duke s young ward Cecily starts to develop feelings for Violet s alter ego Ashton Not to mention blackmail mysterious killer automata the way Violet s pulse uickens whenever Ernest speaks to her and a deadly legacy left by Ernest s father She soon realizes that it s not just keeping her secret until the end of the year she has to worry about it s surviving that longIn contrast to the trashy crop of contemporary mashups of UF with classics that both degrade the original works and pander to the lowest common denominator I am uite excited when an original work that reinterprets classic works in a sff nal context appears and while last year s Shades of Milk and Honey was a bit lighter than I expected and The Dream of Perpetual Motion did not connect with me All Men of Genius hit all the right notes and I will explain why nextOVERVIEWANALYSIS All Men of Genius succeeds because it hits the right balance in both style and content while it charms you from the first page in accepting the over the top happenings that could easily transform the novel into pure farce If you are familiar with Twelfth Night in any of its various incarnations across the centuries you will see its clear and acknowledged influence in both naming and relationships though of course the author adds his own modern touchesOn the other hand the world building is pure madcap steampunk with automatons crazy inventions that somehow work and all around outrageous inventiveness As I kept turning the pages I was wondering what seemingly insane contraption that somehow the magical prose of the author manages to sell to us will come up nextAnd of course the characters have personalities to match outside of the main ones Violet Ernest Cecily Ashton and Jack and several of their friends who are or less what we expect though they also sport last names like Cheek and Pale most of the rest are pure mannerism with names to match like Bunburry Bracknel Prism and Curio while the main villain has the sinister sounding name of Volio And it works so well that you cannot stop but be extremely entertained every moment of this wonderful taleThe dialog has also its share of one liners that made me crack up laughing though there is a lot of serious stuff especially about the stereotyping of gender roles but also about poverty progress and diversity While on first glance there is a whiff of children of privilege in our characters the novel uickly throws that on its ear with some extremely well done scenes as for example when Violet accidentally happens upon Ashton in bed with their family s handsome coachman Anthony in retaliation for Ashton hiding her acceptance letter to the Institute letter that of course comes to Ashton as Violet has to become her twin to be admitted And so it goes with the mixing of classesIt goes without saying that All Men of Genius flows superbly on the page and you are compelled to turn the pages while the ending is in the spirit of Shakespeare and offers a complete package though I would enjoy a return to this universe maybe the hinted possibilities of space travel and an expedition to the MoonHighly highly recommended and an utterly fun and charming book that I am pretty sure I will revisit on occasion in the future

Don t make my mistake of picking up ALL MEN OF GENIUS when you re on your way to bed Hours later bleary eyed and sleepy I was only halfway through the book and still fighting to keep reading unable to put it down Violet Ashton Jack and the befuddled Duke captivated me from the get go and that was before the other Illyrian students even had a chance to win me overEven if I hadn t fallen in love with the characters I would have been a goner for the world building Rosen gives science the same flash and dazzle as magic at Hogwarts but with adult conseuences Violet s passion is machinery but her best friend Jack is drawn to the biological sciences Animal testing doesn t even begin to cover the transplants and experiments that the students undertake While Jack learns new and exciting things in college he also comes to the realization that an idolized professor has no real empathy for the animals he augmentsWatching Jack find his own confidence was a subtle note in the background of Violet s story and one of many examples of how Rosen s attention to detail manages to portray some incredibly realistic and important issues amidst all of the hilarity and science Violet and her friends struggle with gender roles sexual prejudice and double standards galore And while Violet s crusade to enter the all male Illyria College is a plan with a deadline Violet is going to reveal her ruse at the end of her first year her brother Ashton feels that he will always have to conceal his homosexuality from society and Miriam has no expectations that she ll ever be able to marry the man she loves due to her dark skin and her religionALL MEN OF GENIUS is a blend of adult issues and fairy tale optimism The realistic issues that the characters face by no means drag down the tone of the book but neither does Rosen pull any punches about these prejudices and obstacles I hope so badly that ALL MEN OF GENIUS is going to be the first of many books in this parallel universe of magical science as there are many happy endings that I would enjoy readingSexual Content Kissing references to sex rape prostitution and a threesome

Viola Adams has a gift for invention and the best way to hone her skills is by attending the prestigious Illyria College Illyria only accepts male students so of course she masuerades as a boy to attend While there she runs into wacky professors sinister clockwork automatons and the far too sexy for her good Duke While she and the Duke battle their attraction for each other he assuming she s a boy she wanting to focus on her inventions the Duke s ward Cecily falls in love with Viola Meanwhile one of Viola s fellow students plans to take over the worldIt s a bit like Twelfth Night mixed up in a blender with the Importance of Being Ernest except without the transversive sexual tension of the first or the humor of either The world building is odd I could never tell exactly when it was supposed to take place Judging from Ada Lovelace s age it should be 1882 but it never felt like it not even close All historical details are kept very vague which is frustrating to someone like me when reading an alternate history I want to know exactly what s alternate about it The steampunk feels pasted on and it works like magic not science For someone supposedly obsessed with mechanical devices Viola certainly thinks about them very little She doesn t seem to learn a thing at Illyria either she spends all her days working on her own project without needing professors help and her nights drinking with friends Why then go to such effort to attend the college She s never challenged never has to study hard or singe her fingers on a mis wired fiddly bit Her inventing feels like a set piece or like a randomly assigned character trait One big point in this book s favor it would have been very easy for Viola to be the Sole Exceptional Woman but in fact she s surrounded by other women from the girlish chemist Cecily to the sensible prostitute Fiona There were if anything too many characters but a good number of them were women The plot is silly like the professors are silly in this very consciously twee style that apes Lemony Snicket s without approaching his light touch There s no narrative tension and the pacing is soooo slooooow I really really wanted to like this book but the construction was just too lightweight and slapdash I d love to read a silly book with gender play and marauding robots but with characters that read genuinely and humor that actually works
