As a prequel this book starts to explain how the world of the traction cities came about and to bridge the gap between the world we know and that distant future the author has created. As usual Philip Reeve has created characters who are engaging and through them he unfolds the story in a way that keeps one interested through to the last page. The clever and sometimes subtle nods to our world are amusing and remind us that just as the past has been lost and distorted by the passage of time so what we take for granted now will also be lost in the future. What will people make in the future of our cultural references!
There were a few aspects that were not as clear as they might have been; the plot got a bit convoluted. For that I have only given 4 stars but still a good read.
It is so refreshing to find such an original and nuanced female character as Fever Crumb. It completely breaks the mould for female fantasy characters thank god. I love the world she lives in, which like any human world is both brilliant and unspeakably horrible at the same time. I love the plot, higly original and engaging. All round I am absolutely delighted to have found Philip Reeve's work.
