2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Compared to Other Mortal Engines Titles, 8 Oct. 2010
This review is from: A Web of Air (Mortal Engines) (Hardcover)
It really didn't work for me at all; the superb world and fairly grim themes that made the original four shine simply didn't exist in this at all. Fever Crumb lacked it as well but not as much as this. The setting didn't do anything for me, and truth be told I didn't even finish the book since the plot and constant but otherwise pointless Ancient/Old World technology references got boring after a while. Was really hoping for much more, but I think it's being carried more by the author's name and not by any great writing.

I really do hope the series gets revived properly by Mr Reeve, the original four are some of the best books I've read.

Mr Pullman don't you mean Mr. Reeve? Anyway I quite liked this one.

Yeah my bad, I'm terrible at names. I've read Pullman's work as well and they always get jumbled up in my head.

As I said I like the original quartet, Fever Crumb and this just weren't my cup of tea ;(
