Exciting adventure

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’

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!

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.

so far so good

I am reading all of the books before I watch the movie. I am still disappointed by the fact I have heard negative reviews of the first movie. Especially considering how great the first book is. This book is phenomenal. I am looking forward to the next book. Thank you Philip Reeve.

A wonderful sequel that has you grabbing for the next book immediately. If you read book 1, but this one and book 3 right away.
