A review by harleyrae
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld


For awhile I was positive this was gonna be the death of me. I just could not for the life of me get into it. I typically enjoy Scott Westerfeld's books but this one was just not for me. It didn't help that it took me forever and a day to read this, but while I was reading it I was bored and could care less about what happens. I wasn't invested in any of the character or really what was happening. The last half was certainly better than the first half, which is why I did give this book 3 stars. I thought the beasties were a little strange, and I wasn't really sure what they point of them are. I still can't wrap my head around why anyone would want a ship that is a hybrid flying whale. So if I had to choose a side between beasties and clankers, I'm all for the clankers.
All in all I can see why people enjoyed this book, but it just wasn't for me. I will not be continuing on in the series.
