the middle was disappointing

the beginning was good, the ending was good, the middle was insufferable. I only finished it because the first book was Mortal engines. Without giving too much away, I struggled through that cliche big misunderstanding Trope where all the characters have an unneeded conflict and then have to go and mope and do things that are completely out of their character. if you can get through that, it's almost worth it for the end.

Thank you!

imaginative. so well written, that it allows our imagination to give illustrated life to the characters. it is very easy to lose yourself in this series.

the best way to listen to any story is with an open mind. do not try to out maneuver or out wit the story. this is a series that requires an open mind.

my friend argued that "Christopher Columbo" did not discover America in 1924. there's your sign. have a great listen. audible up!

Book 2 emphasizes that this series is a YA title

I didn't enjoy this as much as Book #1. This title made the series to me a definite YA title. It did, however, leave me in suspense enough to finish the series.

Great Sequel

I really enjoyed the first mortal engines book and this was a great sequel. The narrator does a great job and the story continues to be exciting with a series of great new characters. I look forward to the next one in the series!

Good addition had a small issue (spoilers)

Great addition to the story line. Hester and Tom overcoming obstacles in their relationship was well done and heartwarming. The reappearance of Anna Fang (or at least a thing similar to her) was a good twist. The last conversation between Tom and Anna resolves what was left unsaid when she died in the first volume. The overall description and work building was detailed but not overwhelmingly so. The only issue I had with it was Pennyroyal going back to life like nothing had happened. It wasn’t a satisfying ending for that plot thread but not all characters get what they deserve I suppose. Overall I throughly enjoyed the book and already bought the third.

Even better and more exciting than the first one!! This only makes me more excited to listen to the 3rd and 4th books, although will be surprised if they beat this book.

Traction cities move on!

I read the book with my son a few years ago . Revisiting it through Audible has been great fun, and Barnaby Edwards’ narration is first rate. The characterisations are first rate, the plot draws you in, and I was completely emersed in the world of traction cities. Can’t wait to get started on ‘Infernal Devices’

Great read!

I like the author's voice in the story, and about voice, Barnaby Edwards delivers a great performance with the different voices, it's almost like watching a movie!

Exceptional story and performance.

I am new to this genre but am so glad to have found it.

If you enjoyed Mortal Engines, this one is just as good.

Not at all childish!

Published as a children's book but at 62 I found it a very satisfying and engaging tale.
Well written and equally well performed in this audio version.
Better than the sloppy writing and editing of many, so called, adult offerings.
