Excellent, edge-of-your-seat steampunk adventure! ( )
  FinallyJones | Nov 17, 2021 |
I love the genre of Steampunk and the Leviathan trilogy by Scott Westerfeld is a great Middle Grade/YA example of the genre. I find his take on Steampunk to be creative and engaging. I also love the characters in the story and quickly found myself invested in them and what the story had in store for them. ( )

A really interesting steam-punk-ish world with vibrant characters. This is the start of a very cool series. Well paced and written. ( )
  jamestomasino | Sep 11, 2021 |
I'd say this is a 3.5 stars. I enjoyed this book for the most part, but it did take me awhile to finish. It was a fun read while I read it, but when I put it down it didn't haunt me, calling me back to it like a really good read usually does. I did enjoy it enough though to make plans to finish the series but it's not super high on my reading list of priorities.

What I liked about the book was of course the steampunk genre. The living airships were amazing. They fasinated me in everyway. It was a bit genius. The machines were very interesting as well but held a note of familiarity which made them just a touch less facinating. The book was told from two different view points Deryn's and Alek's which I actually liked cause it kept everything fresh and different. I also like the way of speaking. I could hear it in my head as a read and I love it. Expecially Deryn, who was my favorite character.

What I didn't like was, as I said before, the fact that the book was really rememberable when I wasn't reading. I don't know why not? It has everything that it should have to be a favorite for me and yet I don't feel it. There was a lot of war. While I know some like those books, I don't. So that was a suck it up and power through issue. ( )

I was impressed with Westerfield's creativity, with this "alternate history" (steampunk) novel. Prince Aleksander, a son of Archduke Ferdinand Hapsburg is smuggled away after his poisoning. The German-Austrian world is technologically advanced, and the son is stashed away in the mountains. Meanwhile a girl, masquerading as a boy to enter the army, is stationed on a living airship, part of the Darwinian cross-breeding that permeates the English world. Their two paths cross as the airship is shot down in the same mountains. Good illustrations too. ( )
  skipstern | Jul 11, 2021 |
The novel is a study in opposites, of boy versus girl, working class versus aristocracy, British versus German, and its overlying thematic division of Darwinists and Clankers gives all of these a distinctive torque, while avoiding mapping neatly to any specific agenda. The novel’s concluding set piece features a grand, elegant and very satisfying hybridization that suggests that opposites can meet, collapse and mingle, and that this story has natural sequels, which I will undoubtedly read.
 
Westerfeld writes gripping, relentless coming-of-age novels that are equally enjoyable by boys and girls, adults and kids, and Leviathan is no exception. I'm looking forward to volume two -- and many more to come.
