Today’s Road Trip Wednesday question at YA Highway is: What was the best book you read in January?
This is an easy one for me–and perhaps not surprising to those that frequent this blog:
This is the concluding book in the LEVIATHAN trilogy, and, in my opinion, it’s every bit as good as its two predecessors. There’s a mad scientist, secrets are revealed, thrills and excitement, and a nice ending. The thing that impresses me most about this series is–again, my opinion–that it maintains momentum throughout all three books. If you were to ask me to pick a favorite, I seriously couldn’t. Westerfeld’s writing is the best I’ve seen from him so far, the story is compelling, and it remains so for the duration. I might say this is the best series I’ve read since Harry Potter, and while this is true, I really haven’t read enough series for that to be a useful statement. But I would have no problem recommending this series to anyone who loves a good story.
And if you’re wondering how good steampunk can be, read LEVIATHAN, and work your way through BEHEMOTH to GOLIATH.
If you want an idea of what the series is about, here’s my review of LEVIATHAN.
