Book Summary of The Clockwork Man

Karl Gruber, a world-famous builder of automated clocks, has reached the pinnacle of his art in Ernst a man constructed entirely of clockwork. Educated and raised in the Gruber household to be a gentle, caring soul, Ernst begins to discover a profound love for his masters daughter, Giselle. Just as their relationship becomes intimate, however, tragedy strikes and the family falls apart. Abandoned, knowing no other life but the one he has led, Ernst allows himself to wind down in a kind of suicide.

Over one hundred years later, he awakens in a strange new land, the world hes known long gone. Along with his mentor and guide, a well-meaning if slightly unstable homeless man, Ernst attempts to piece together the events that brought him to his new home and to let go of the century-old tragedy that still haunts him.

I usually enjoy novels that have things blow up, wise cracking detectives, international tales of intrigue, secret agents saving the world from the next newest megalomaniac.

I loved this book. It is a diary of Ernst, a clockwork man, who was built by a famed German clock maker.
