ALL MEN OF GENIUS provides the playful wonder of a Harry Potter
book with the adult themes of troubled Victorian society. Gender, sexual, and racial discrimination abound, and not all of our heros are guaranteed a happy ending. Rosen does a wonderful job making the science labs of Illyrian as magical as any Hogwarts lab, and adds a sexual spice that never quite broke the mold of polite society (though Mrs. Wilde's mail order business came close). The story did lag a bit for me in the middle, if only because I was so anxious to see how everything would work out in the end. I hope Rosen returns to this fabulous alternate world in the future, and even if he doesn't, I'll be sure to pick up whatever he writes next.
