Perfect dystopia; an eye-opening read.
Lauren Kate - 15/06/2012
Perhaps weirdly for someone who writes YA, I don’t actually read many YA or children’s novels – but I made an exception for Philip Reeve’s quartet of novels, of which this is the first. And I’m so glad I did. It’s a fantastic adventure story, set in a totally believable far future world, which allows Reeve to make big statements about evolution, sociology, technology and anthropology, but which he never lets interfere with the story – they’re there if you want to see them. It’s clever, thrilling, and incredibly moving, and the rest of the series completely live up to the high standards set by Mortal Engines.
