Towards young adult readers but many adults will njoy book as well Westerfeld builds a uniue world where Darwinists create machinery and weapons using DNA to battle as well Westerfeld builds a uniue world where Darwinists create machinery and weapons using DNA to battle the mechanical steam powered contraptions of the Clankers The Clankers favor machinery on legs rather than wheels Whimsical creatures populate the pages There are beasties such as strafing hawks flechette bats fighting bears message lizards and my favorite the perspicacious loris Beautifully detailed illustrations by Keith Thompson make this world come alive Thanks to the illustrations I was
to imagine all of the cool and gadgets developed by the Clankers and ven the strange creatures The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online engineered by the Darwinists I found myself lingering on these pages I would read a little flip back to the illustrations and just stare at them I must say that my reader did not do justice to these illustrations I think and your results may vary depending on your Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet e reader that a dead tree book may be preferable for this series The story is captivating There are some pretty intense moments great on thedge of your seat reading I 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 (Software Studies) enjoyed the astute observations of the perspicacious loris I loved the specialized vocabulary from this book I might just have to use some of those words they may come in handyThank you Scott Westerfeld for writing such anngaging series My 12 year old reluctant reader is Design Research: Methods and Perspectives enjoying this series I fullyxpect him to start calling his brothers bumrags and dummkopfs sometime soon Thank you Simon Schuster Galley Grab for an advanced reader copy of this bookReview posted on Badass Book Reviews SCOTT WESTERFELD WHY YOU SO AMAZING Like seriously It s not fairI don t think I ve Your Everyday Art World ever been disappointed by a Scott Westerfeld book Sure some are better than others but they always have such awesome world building they re alwaysxciting and they re always a ton of fun to read It s hard to beat his previous series like Uglies and Midnighters but I think he just may have done it with the Leviathan trilogyFirst of all the premise is so freaking awesome I want to xplode when I think about it In case you haven t read these books and know nothing about them shame on you they re about an alternate WWI fought between the Darwinists and the Clankers The Clankers use machines as airshipsweapons while the Darwinists use giant fabricated animals The story takes place on one of the airbeasts called the Leviathan Our two main characters are Alek the prince of Austria whose parents have recently been murdered and Deryn a girl pretending to be a boy named Dylan so that she can fight in the air serviceWell I guess that s about all I can say without giving a rundown of the ntire plot But it already sounds awesome yesSo let s just say These books rock my socks off And they just get better as they go along I really liked Leviathan and Behemoth but I LOOOVED Goliath It s such a wonderful book and such a terrific Doreen Valiente Witch ending to the seriesFirst of all as I ve already mentioned Westerfeld s world building never disappoints And he really steps it up with this series It s awesome how he draws inspiration from actual history and puts such an original spin on it The machines and creatures he creates are super cool and the books in general have a very distinct gritty atmosphere to them that separates them from his other novelsSecondly the illustrations are just the bomb A lot of credit for these books awesomeness must go to Keith Thompson because his drawings are stunning Sometimes I would just want to sit there and stare for five minutes He drawsverything in such amazing detail with so much to look at There s already a lot of great world building in the prose but the illustrations really help to bring the story to lifeThirdly the characters Ahhh I love them I think Deryn is a slightly stronger character than Alek both literally and figuratively I feel like Westerfeld s female characters are always kickass than his male characters Which is awesome and all I just happened to realize it P But anyway they re both still very likable characters and you can t help but sympathize with themAnd I have to say the romance is just perfect YA literature needs romance like this I m tired of all the books where the girl is all wimpy and the guy has to come and save her butt In these books it s pretty much the opposite Not only that but the relationship actually takes time to develop Sure there s the whole Oh dear he thinks I m a boy thing standing in the way but Duty Free Murder even so it s a carefully crafted romance and I appreciate that I didn t really know how it was going to play out and I was afraid it was going to be too dramatic or whatever but it wasn t It was great Gah I don t want to give too much away But basically if you ve read the other books and haven t read this one yet YOU NEED TO READ THIS ONE And I m pretty sure it ll make you happy If you haven t read these books at all well read themAnd now I m going to run around shouting BUM RAGS and BARKING SPIDERSGood day.
